Transaction Has a 'Bad Jump Destination' or 'Out of Gas' Error

Last updated: October 26th, 2021

When a transaction fails due to a Bad jump destination or Out of Gas error, the ETH never actually leaves your address. If you check your balance on Etherscan, Ethplorer, or MyCrypto, you should see the same amount you had before.

Keep in mind that while you do get any ETH back you sent, the gas fees are not returned. This goes to the miners as a reward for processing your transaction, even if it fails.

There are a lot of complicated things about gas and transactions, but luckily we have a pretty sweet write-up that should help clarify things.
