I used polyscan bridge to transfer my polygon Weth back to my ethereum network.
I did this via my PC after linking my MetaMask. It failed 4 times… now I have zero balance in my polygon network
Where the heck would it have gone?? I even thought I may have transferred it into a different token on accident… so I added every token I could think of on both networks, turned on the advanced token recognition and everything. Nada!!!
Any suggestions. Really bummed if I lost 3,xxx in WETH…
You mentioned that the transaction failed 4 times. If you signed a transaction each time then and had to pay a miner fee for the transfer on the 4th transaction. Follow the last transaction hash on polyscan and click on the symbol next to the recieiving address. …The information should state that saying the wallet address belongs to a contract. If so, then your funds are in a 7 day testing period which is stipulated in the white paper for the poly-bridge converting to ETH. After the 7 days is up then the funds should auto withdraw to the wallet which you listed originally when you initiated the process.
I feel your pain. I got drained a few weeks ago because I was trying to make a transaction on Rari Capital and Uniswap and my internet was slow or something. Like the n00b that I am, I would cancel and retry… low and behold I got charged like 4 times for gas fees. No central authority to complain to… in web2 I would have barked at the bank and my funds would have been returned. We really need to fix this. People cant be losing money on some bs.
You are right in that there still needs to be a lot of improvements made with the ecosystem, but thankfully these improvements are actively being made, especially around scalability and educating new users.
Yeah, its a work in progress and a journey we are all on. I agree with you, we are all here to iron out the frictions and improve the design of these systems. I do, however, think that if we have a human centered, empathy oriented design philosophy, we have to make safeguards for people so that we no longer have to blame the user for losses.
Sorry to hear about your 3k being lost or in limbo, On reddit there is a user that contacted me through DM about helping me with an issue on the polygon bridge v2 and he kept asking for my seed keys to my Metamask account, and then sent me a link to a site for me to convert, I look up who owned the URL and it was one of those anonymous forms sites where you can just make a form and send out the url. So i sent all the screenshots and DM’s to Metamask security and the contacted me back with the info about the scammer. Be careful …
