Pretty straight-forward problem. I'm trying to deploy a smart contract token using Mist (not the browser). When I click deploy, it asks me to confirm, tells me the gas it'll use (maybe that's too low? Currently it's at 8) and then I confirm and it just stays in pending state. I've tried to deploy it 3 times now with increasing gas. What could be the problem? The current max amount of ETH to spend is .016, that's quite a bit and it still isn't confirming.
The pending state for the transaction may not being going through because:
you are not currently mining or connected to a mining node.
the gas price is set too high.
you may be inadvertently increasing the gas price each time you attempt to deploy.
your account hasn't been unlocked or the transaction wasn't signed.
If you can provide more information about which chain/network you are using that would be helpful.
