Common issues and fixes.

Polygon Blockchain Issues

Having issues connecting or transacting on Polygon? You're not alone--check out some common issues and resolutions below. โ˜๐Ÿฑ

Tips on improving your experience:

  • ๐Ÿ–‡ Check your RPC endpoint is working. They can be congested at times.

  • โ›ฝ Watch the gas prices.

  • โš  Do not keep trying new transactions! Cancel or speed up the existing one.

RPC Endpoint Issues

  • If websites are loading but you are unable to load blockchain data, your RPC endpoint could be congested.

  • Check your Metamask token balances: if they are missing, this is a sign that your RPC endpoint is not working.

Gas Issues

  • Check the current gas prices here: https://polygonscan.com/chart/gasprice.

  • If a transaction is not being confirmed (mined), you probably need to speed up the transaction by paying a higher gas price.

  • Do not keep trying new transactions (see below)!

Stuck/Pending Transactions

Other Weird Browser Behaviour

  • In your browser settings, clear the site's cache.

  • In your browser settings, clear the site's cookies.

  • Ensure there are no pending transactions.

  • Restart the browser.

  • Try re-accessing the page.

In rare instances, it has been reported that backing up your private keys, and resetting the metamask profile data or re-installing metamask, has resolved some issues.

Site Connection Issues

At rare times, the polycat website may become unresponsive or offline, due to DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks. ๐Ÿ˜ฟ

Unfortunately, DDoS attacks are a common occurrence in the DeFi world. They are staged by bad actors who would wish to take us offline for their benefit.

Fear not--if our primary site polycat.finance is offline, please try one of our backup sites:

DDoS attacks are generally transitory and temporary, ceasing within a few hours.
