On issues with deposits from Ethereum to Polygon PoS via the PoS bridge

All,

We are experiencing an issue with the state sync mechanism of the Polygon PoS chain bridges.

  1. The withdrawals from Polygon PoS to Ethereum are working as normal, although the deposits from Ethereum to Polygon Pos via the PoS bridge are encountering issues.
  2. All deposited funds are safe and will be reflected once the relay mechanism is back to normal.
  3. Initial investigation points to the cause being a particular deposit creating a large data variable that awaits a sync from Ethereum to Polygon PoS over the validator node run relay mechanism.
  4. We expect the issue to be resolved in 24 hours, until then the deposits on the Polygon wallet UI will be paused.
  5. In the meantime, deposits and withdrawals to and from the Polygon PoS and mainnet Ethereum on the exchanges are operating as normal.
  6. Also, fast withdrawal bridges to and from Polygon PoS and mainnet Ethereum are available as an alternative.

The team is still investigating and plans to share more soon.

Hey team,

Is there a larger issue with polygon?
There is a large >24k usd worth transaction being sent to the PoS bridge, but it is now in the black hole.

First time i use polygon more seriously and this happens :hole:

I tried to make a payment for an NFT on Opensea with polygon ETH for the first time last night. Lost $1,035 in the process of making two swaps from ETH to Polygon ETH. It says the transaction went through, but the Polygon Eth is nowhere to be found. I am hoping this is just because of bridge issues.

This is the message I got on my meta mask.

Polygon Problem

The confusing part to me is that is says the payment was processed.

I am relatively new to this, so any help is appreciated! I really can’t afford to lose $1,035 dollars. (There was one more transaction where I also can’t find my money) Thanks in advance!

My transaction was also issued through opensea last night. The part that worries me is that the fork only started this morning.

Good Morning all!

The thing that is getting me worry is that i did my transaciton yesterday at 5:50 PM EST. My ETH gone from my metamask, 0.25 ETH.

The important thing is i will loose the opportunity to get the NFT i wanted for something i cant control! Who will get me a solution for this! I appreciate to say our money is safe, but it get me a little worrie also that you only reply or address the issue a day after, this is not suppose to be 24/7???

You shouldn’t invest what you cannot afford to loose. Rule #1 of crypto!

Since there is no update, it is probably all gone.

For such a severe bug that affects the funds of users, the triage team is pretty slow and unresponsive.
