Hi i have been waiting hours for a transaction that is pending to fail or cancel. it was a swap made on binance smart chain on autofarm.network using their dex aggregator swap app.
the gas limit was set too high and it was a bug , but i didnt see that at first and i approved it. it was 57,000,000. and gas price was set to 5. it has been pending since. the transaction is unable to be cancelled. when i tried to cancel , the cancel button said: not enough gas - when i hovered over it. the cancel button itself was grayed out and couldnt be clicked.
i tried to go into metamask settings and reset my account, on recommendation of metamask FAQ, it erased my activity, but on the blockchain the txn is still pending as shown on bscscan.com
and now i can no longer see the txn in my metamask. i have to go on chain to see it. i have contacted autofarm.network to see if they have advice.
i am unable to use the wallet for any other transactions currently.
how long will it take for the txn to finally fail?
what can i do to remedy this?
it had a gas fee of .285 bnb which was the bug, and my account had more than this amount in it, so in theory it should have went through, though that would be 100.00 usd worth of bnb or more.
i cant take a screenshot anymore of what the transaction looked like inside the wallet because i cleeared it with reset account option; attempting to fix . hence; i can no longer see the txn in my metamask history because it was cleared.
autofarm responded already and doesnt seem to understand what my problem is. is that the txn swap in their dex agg. contract has bugged out and is hanging.
what can i do on my end?
As far as reversing / cancelling a transactiopn manually using Metamaskl; i already tried sending a txn with same nonce to my own address to cancel, with slightly higher gas of 5.5 gas price versus 5.0 original; and same gas limit of 57 million. or is this to be sent to the same address as the pending txn? despite being quite vague; instructions on doing this seem geared towards ethereum chain / smart contracts… binance being a fork i would think perhaps it would be the same / similar process.
