I am reading the paper: CLUE: Towards Discovering Locked Cryptocurrencies in Ethereum, available at: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/346425189_CLUE_Towards_Discovering_Locked_Cryptocurrencies_in_Ethereum It says that:
Contract-creation Failure EOA: When the user deploys a smart contract in Ethereum, he/she will still receive one fake contract address if the contract-creation fails. Indeed, the received contract address does not exist in StateDB just after the contractcreation failure. However, some users might wrongly ignore the failure message and still transfer cryptocurrencies to the fake contract address, leading to cryptocurrencies locked permanently. Because the address with locked cryptocurrencies never stores code, we classify it as EOA.
Is it possible to get a fake contract address? Is the above text correct?
