How To Get A Stuck Transaction To Clear from Coinbase Wallet

This is an example of how to fix a transaction that is stuck or pending due to low gas fee. I made the mistake of lowering a gas fee, apparently too low, and the transaction was stuck for over a week with no fix in sight.  Keep in mind that my transaction had NO HASH.

Fast forward to today and I managed to revert my transaction. Oddly enough I received an email from Coinbase with the exact same fix less than an hour later.

  • First thing is log into your Coinbase Wallet and BACKUP YOUR RECOVERY PHASE!!!
  • Next make sure that you BACKED UP YOUR RECOVERY PHRASE!!!
  • Seriously make sure…
  • Next sign out of the Coinbase Wallet
  • Sign back in with your RECOVERY CODE
  • IF all goes as planned your transaction is null and the coins are back in your wallet.

This fixed mine!

Coinbase Supported noted one other thing which was:

In some cases, a transaction is broadcast to the network with low gas fee resulting in stuck transactions on-chain.

If a transaction is pending on-chain for an extended period of time (has hash), you will need to either wait for network fees to drop or replace the transaction. To replace the transaction:
– Open stuck transaction details in Etherscan and note down the nonce
– Go back to Coinbase Wallet and send at least $0.01 worth of ETH to any valid address
– Select normal or fast as the miner fee options and then replace the nonce in the custom section with the stuck transaction’s nonce.
