What Makes a transaction in txPool not mined ?


Miners generally mine transactions that will pay them the highest gas fee for doing so. Because of this, each block is a sort of auction where the highest bidders (in terms of gasPrice) get included in the block.

A transaction sitting in the txPool generally means that the supplied gasPrice is not high enough for a miner to want to accept it. You can check here for current gas prices.

If you want to speed up this process, simply resend the transaction and choose a higher gasPrice.

  • Thank you for your answer, but the problem that I am using a private network (PoA) and all transactions are sent with the same gasPrice (3000000) – maroodb Oct 29 '19 at 7:44
