So after all the build up I managed to miss the public sale!
I was ready at 12pm to send funds from Coinbase to Metamask then to send from Metamask to DADI.
The trial run I completed took only a minute to send 0.02 Ethereum from Coinbase to Metamask.
At 12.08 I sent 1.5 Ether over to Metamask from Coinbase and it is still pending now at 13.36. The problem apparently is the amount of “Gas” Coinbase uses as standard.
As you can see above that 30 gas was used for this transaction. I know now that this is the reward for processing your transaction. At time of ICO launches like today there are many more transactions to be processed than usual so the transaction queue will be prioritised by gas. 30 gas is apparently not enough to get a transaction processed at times of high volume! I had a feeling my first ICO would not go smoothly maybe I should have moved from Coinbase to Metamask yesterday.
Looks like I’ve missed the boat now! Doh!
Did anyone manage to transfer before they sold out?
