DAO creation taking a long time to confirm

If your organization is taking too long to launch, it may be due to an insufficient gas price. Your Ethereum provider (e.g. Metamask) should pre-fill the correct gas limit and gas price, but sometimes it will pre-fill the amounts too low. Below are the recommended actions you can take to evaluate whether this is the case:

  • Make sure you're paying a reasonable gas price. Check the value on the blockchain scan here. Think of gas as a budget for the miner to process your transaction.

  • You may want to increase the gas limit, which will allow more transactions per second to be processed by the blockchain. Learn more about Ethereum gas limits here.

  • If you are using Metamask as your Ethereum provider, read here on how you can adjust the gas price and gas limits for your transactions.
