Fixing Opensea

Here are some solutions you can try out.

Wait for a bit

Transaction processing times may take longer based on the demand of the Ethereum network. If your transaction isn’t going through, try checking Etherscan’s Gas Tracker to find out details about your transaction, including an estimate on when it’ll be confirmed. 

Choose a collection

Every NFT that you mint on the platform must be part of a collection. While Opensea automatically makes one for you if you don’t choose one, it’s always better to create one first and add your NFT to it when you’re creating the listing.

Wallet connection issues

If your wallet is experiencing connection issues, your transactions will not work properly. Keep in mind that Opensea is just a way to access the NFT assets stored in your wallet.

So, if the connection between your wallet and Opensea is hindered, you won’t be able to see the transactions on your Opensea account. Try to remove your wallet and add it again. Do keep in mind that you will require your secret phrase for this to work. 

Clear your browser’s data

Corrupt files in your cache or otherwise can cause this error as well. Clear them out to see if you can get Opensea to work.

Step 1: Type in chrome://settings/clearBrowserData in your browser’s address bar and hit Enter.

Check for updates

If the issue is in the browser itself, developers might release an update to fix the problem. Regardless, you should always ensure you’ve got the latest version of the browser installed to avoid running into issues that could otherwise be avoided. 

Head over to chrome://settings/help and make sure you’re on the latest update. If you’re not, update immediately and try again.
