    • Locate the "MAKER ACTION" section within the transaction details.

    • Click on the "CANCEL" button displayed under "MAKER ACTION."

Transaction Fee:

  • Please be aware that cancelling a bridge transaction incurs a fee. This fee is typically paid in the native asset of the blockchain you're transferring your funds to (e.g., SOL for Solana).

  • Ensure you have sufficient balance of this native asset in your wallet to cover the transaction fee before proceeding with the cancellation.

Confirmation and Processing Time:

  • Once you confirm the cancellation, a transaction will be submitted to the blockchain network.

  • It may take some time for the cancellation to be processed and for your bridged assets to return to your original wallet. The processing time depends on the specific blockchain involved.

By following these steps and understanding the potential consequences, you should be able to effectively cancel a stuck bridge transaction and regain control of your cryptocurrency assets.
