Whenever there is an ERC20 token transfer might have fail error the amount/token the sender sent does not leave the sender address but “Gas Fee” is being deducted.

The main reason are on the contract & token failure nature. Below are the most common reasons an ERC-20 token transfer might have failed are:


  1. The Token contract is locked or paused (tokens are not transferable yet)

    • The variables include: minting, mintingFinished, paused, transferable, transferableStartTime, paused, locked

  1. The sending From address has an insufficient token balance

    • Please ensure that the sending address has enough balance of the transfering token before sending token to another address


  1. Token contract does not emit a Transfer event even though the balance is actually deducted (Not compatible fully ERC-20 Compliant)

    • The token contract of a specific token does not provide a valid transfer events log thus causing the transaction to fail.

    • This issue is due to the compliance policy toward ERC20 tokens.


For additional assistance, please contact the sender/transaction creator directly for more information.
