A lot of investors deal in NFTs. The process of performing actions relating to NFTs is a bit complex, but with the right wallet and platform, you can easily take trade actions relating to them. Hurdles are a part of every trading activity and if you have encountered transaction failure relating to NFTs, and are unaware of the reasons behind it, then we are here to hold your hand and make you understand what leads to the non-completion of the in-progress transaction performed either through a MetaMask Extension or its mobile app.

After learning the causes, you can then take action to rectify the error and again process the transaction to complete it in the best manner.

What do the displayed error messages signify?

When a transaction gets failed there are multiple reasons behind that and because of that there are different error messages that get displayed on the user’s screen. However, a few of the investors have a clear understanding of what the displayed messages refer to. 

Thus, to aid you in understanding the meaning of each of the popped-up messages, we are summarizing them here. 

Take a look at them:

Reverted: If you have attempted to perform a transaction through MetaMask Extension and it doesn’t get completed rather it comes back to the state in which it was earlier when it was processed, then the error occurs as “Reverted”. 

Out/lack of gas: The gas fee is the most important aspect that is to be considered when you are going to make a transaction. A normal transaction requires around 21,000 gas units, and when it comes to NFTs transactions then it asks for more gas units and the process is also a bit complicated. When the gas runs out before the completion of the executed transaction, then an error reflecting out of gas fee is thrown.

Pending/Stuck/Queued: Lack of gas fees to incentivize validators for picking it up and adding it to the block, the investors are notified by the message of the transaction pending. Irrespective of the fact what MetaMask Extension you are using, users are notified with the message carrying the pending label.

Dropped/Replaced: When one transaction in favor of another transaction, gets disregarded/replaced by the network then the message carrying the dropped/replaced information gets appeared on the investor’s screen. 

Further, if the transaction gets failed then you’ll be able to check the “Failed” status in your wallet. Moreover, you can even track that transaction through Etherscan or your network’s block explorer.
