TRON - Transaction could not be found

When broadcasting a TRON transaction to the blockchain, even if you get a transaction hash from Tatum, the transaction can be dropped from the TRON blockchain mempool.

If a successfully broadcasted transaction is reaching the TRON mempool, there can be many reasons for it to be dropped:

  • mempool size limit could have been reached (low-priority transactions fall victim to mempool pruning first)
  • The transaction could have reached the set mempool expiration time (Time-To-Live)
  • Double-spending

Assuming the transaction is valid, if this issue happens to you only during certain periods during the day, it might be during higher traffic hours when fees get bloated. In this case, we recommend increasing the fee so that your transactions will be less likely to be dropped or timed out.
