I sent 275 Matic through the Plasma bridge to the Eth network almost 3 months ago and it is still pending on my Polygon Widget. I have tried everything that I could think of to do but nothing is working so far. It says it reached the Ethereum checkpoint but it’s been there for 80 something days. I’ve been in touch with MetaMask and they said from there side it shows that the transfer went through and it’s shows successful when I click on the Tx but it’s still sitting there in the Polygon wallet with a spinning circle that says 1 pending. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you for any help!
