Socket Hang up Error

I was trying to store the new user on the multichain blockchain using streams before storing it to the database. I am getting socket error and when I am trying to store the new user using streams. 

I have setup the multichainOptions correctly and running the blockchain locally

const newUser = new User({




password: req.body.password


const dataStr = JSON.stringify({



avatar: newUser.avatar


//multichain code goes here



stream: "users",

key: "prateek",

data: StrToHex(dataStr)


(err, info) => {

console.log(`User : ` + info);  # getting undefined here along with the error

Before using this library, we recommend trying the same operation with the multichain-cli command line tool. That will help you understand whether the issue is with MultiChain not being configured correctly, or else the library you are using.

Thanks a lot ! I solved it was just that I had to add autosubscribe key as streams to the multichain.conf file and it worked well for me. Thanks again !!
