Why did my CLV Wallet swap fail?
When you execute a swap through CLV Wallet, you interact directly with the liquidity source that offers the best price for your requested trade. CLV Wallet does its best to optimize each transaction before the swap is submitted. However, just like any on-chain transaction, transaction success is not guaranteed.
The main reason your swap might have failed is likely to be slippage. When you perform a swap, you are agreeing to a price quote. If the price of the swap goes outside of the allowed slippage set (typically 2.5%), it will fail in order to prevent you from seeing a huge variance in value when completed. There is a higher risk of slippage if you’re trading a pair that includes a volatile asset, as its price is more likely to change while processing the transaction.
If your swap fails, you can retry the swap, but this time, input a higher slippage percentage.
When a swap fails, some gas (native token) will still be spent. These native tokens go to the network miners/validators and not to CLV Wallet. This is unavoidable and part of the nature of blockchain.
