I'm hoping someone can help.
I tried to mint some NFTs and my transaction got stuck in pending. Let's call this "Transaction #1". It was for 0.1332 ETH.
After about an hour, it showed as "Dropped" in Etherscan, but it was still showing as Pending in Metamask. I had no ETH left to cancel it so it was just stuck there. After a little while I started getting nervous, because the transaction was dropped, but my ETH did not return back to my account, so I started looking for ways to speed it up.
I found a video that suggested that the best way to do this is to create a new transaction of sending 0 ETH to yourself (so you have a minimal gas fee) and using a Nonce that is +1 the Nonce of your stuck transaction. I did that. Let's call this "Transaction #2".
As soon as I did that I noticed that Transaction #1 was showing 0 ETH (ie. it was overridden by the amount for Transaction #2).. I then tried to cancel that transaction and was successful because it showed me a cheaper gas fee that I could afford. The transaction was successfully canceled.
The end result is that Transaction #1 now shows as canceled and for 0 ETH. Transaction #2 shows as successful. The money is not back in my account.
Is there any way I can get it back?
For your reference, see the log of Transaction #1 Transaction created with a value of 0.1332 ETH at 12:02 on 9/11/2021. Transaction submitted with estimated gas fee of 0 WEI at 12:02 on 9/11/2021. Transaction submitted with estimated gas fee of 0.001 ETH at 13:14 on 9/11/2021. Transaction cancel attempted with estimated gas fee of 0.001 ETH at 13:15 on 9/11/2021 Transaction successfully cancelled at 13:15 on 9/11/2021
Goes without saying that I would really appreciate any help here. It's a lot of money.
