What is a Pending Transaction? ⌛

Note: Moonriver (MOVR) on Kusama is a companion network to Moonbeam and provides a permanently incentivized canary network. New code ships to Moonriver first, where it can be tested and verified under real economic conditions. Once proven, the same code ships to Moonbeam on Polkadot.

Polygon PoS (polygonscan.com) is an EVM-compatible environment optimized for high throughput and low transaction fees while Polygon zkEVM (zkevm.polygonscan.com) is an EVM-equivalent ZK rollup designed for security.


If your transaction status shows Pending like in the above screenshot, your transaction is pending to be included in a block, please be patient.

For periods of normal volume, transactions are usually included within seconds and do not spend any length of time in the transaction pool.

However, for periods of extremely high volume, transactions could pend for hours or days before being included.

Another possible reason for a pending transaction would be by setting the Gas Fee for the transaction too low.
