I cancelled a pending transaction because the gas fees that were use were way too low (only 41 Gwei). So I clicked “cancel” in metamask, then selected “high”: metamask set the priority fee to 2, and the max fee to something around 140 gwei. I don’t remember exactly. Then I clicked save.
Result: the pending transaction was dropped, yeah, but now I have the new transaction pending. What I don’t understand is that this new transaction has a gas price of only 45 Gwei?! Metamask definitely suggested a different price which I did NOT touch.
OK, so I tried so speed up that and clicked “speed up cancellation”. I selected “high” again and additionally increased the priority fee to 3 (!) and even increased the suggested max fee a bit.
This sped up transaction is now pending, too… What the f***?!? Gas price in this transaction is indicated on etherscan as 49 Gwei?!? How come that? Why does metamask only increase by a ridiculous 5?!
What can I do in order to make the transaction go through? Should I insert 1 million into metamask in order to make sure that an appropriate value for the price gets through?
Can anyone help? Thank you very much!
