Why are some tokens unavailable to swap?

A token is unavailable to swap if there is no decentralized liquidity available for that token. Other cryptocurrency users provide decentralized liquidity that enables exchanging one token type for another.

How can I swap unavailable tokens?

You may be able to use a decentralized exchange (DEX) dapp for tokens that are not listed.

On Valora version 1.79.1 and earlier

You can find dapp options by going to Menu > Dapps and selecting a dapp listed under the Swap section.

On Valora version 1.80+

Go to Valora's home screen and tap on Discover at the bottom navigation bar. Select a dapp listed under the Swap section.

What does Valora use to facilitate swaps?

Valora helps connect you to decentralized liquidity to facilitate your swap. Valora uses the top decentralized liquidity providers in the cryptocurrency ecosystem, and at no point is any centralized entity providing liquidity, custodying tokens, or executing trades on your behalf.

Why did my swap fail?

Your swap likely failed due to slippage, meaning the price you quoted is no longer available. Slippage occurs because of the volatility of the markets, which causes prices to change constantly. If your swap fails, please try again after a few minutes.

If you use the Max button and your swap fails, enter your max amount minus 0.01, then try again.

Why am I getting an unfavorable exchange rate?

Unfavorable exchange rates are usually the result of low liquidity for the swap pair you're trying to exchange. This creates higher price volatility. 

Why does Valora allow unfavorable exchange rates?

Sometimes, users may choose to swap an token despite unfavorable rates. To provide users with as much autonomy over their tokens as possible, Valora does not prevent these swaps. All users need to do their research and carefully review all details before completing a transaction.

The Swap page is unavailable in the UK, Singapore, the Philippines, and Japan due to regulatory restrictions.
