I sent ETH with MetaMask and it seems that the transaction ran out of gas. However, the ETH is gone. They don't show up in my wallet anymore. The receiving party says, that they did not get it either.

Can anyone help me finding out, where the ETH is?


Thanks a lot!


The status of the transaction has

TxReceipt Status: Fail

It means the whole transaction has failed and it was reversed immediately. The ether sent was returned to your account (minus ether used to pay the gas cost of the transaction).

Some intermediate operations (usually called "internal transactions") were sucessful but since the whole transaction was reversed they were also reversed, it is like they never happened.

Some wallets have problems with reversed trasaction check with your wallet support, in case of doubt use several block explorers to check your balance.
