I have created a transaction on the Polygon mainnet with a gasPrice of 496 GWEI (this is 496 times more than the normal gasPrice) and a gasLimit of 2,000,000.

The transaction is a simple ERC20 transfer(), so shouldn't require more than about 50,000 gas.

Why is my transaction stuck on pending with such a high gasPrice and gasLimit?


  • Have u changed the nonce of ur tx ?

  • If ur tx has the nonce 18 and ur account has just 7 transactions.. then that tx cannot be mined until the missing transactions form 8 to 17 are mined. I’m not sure if that is the problem, can see anything useful using my phone

You can't skip nonce numbers when making transactions. From what I can tell the nonce of that account is 4. Try performing that transaction again but with the correct nonce(i.e nonce 5).
