It is a known issue with the Ethereum Network. It is made worse by Ethereum using Nonce for transactions. (Which means that if a transaction gets stuck it will hold up any transactions after that as well -  creating a Nonce gap)

This applies to Ethereum and ERC-20 tokens 

Issues caused on Cryptopias backend are easier to solve than issues with the Ethereum network. Once a transaction has been broadcast it cannot really be cancelled without a lot of cost in gas and causing further new problems.

(Ethereum does have a "cancel and replace" feature but this causes more problems for a exchange wallet and is considered "experimental" and can result in loss of funds)

https://github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum/issues/14669 

Expected behaviour

eth.sendTransaction returns a hash and the transaction should be broadcasted to the network.

Actual behaviour

eth.sendTransaction returns a hash but the transaction is never broadcasted to the network.

Steps to reproduce the behaviour

This tends to happen when the network is congested (usually around large ICOs). But calling sendTransaction during this time returns transaction hashes and these seem to just get lost in the ether.

 Appreciate the info, thanks.

Are they going to do anything to resolve this issue like contacting them so someone can aid them to get everyones money back to their accounts or just sit and wait?
