Welcome to the DeFi Saver knowledge base.

I am getting a warning saying "an issue was detected with this transaction that would cause it to fail" - what should I do?

Recommendations on what you should do in case of failing transaction warnings.

The warning about detected issues with the transaction can sometimes be seen before you confirm your transaction and you will see it displayed like in the example screenshot below.

This error means that an issue was detected with the logic of the transaction that's meant to be executed. An additional indicator of such issues is the extraordinarily high transaction cost, as also visible in the screenshot above.

Whenever you see this error we DO NOT recommend proceeding as it will almost certainly result in a failed transaction and wasted transaction fees.

However, there are a few things that you can try to resolve this:

  • Try refreshing your page and making the same action again
  • Try disabling any script-blocking extensions that you have enabled in your browser
  • Try using a different browser
  • Try using a smaller amount

If none of the above helps, please feel free to reach out our team, either via the on-site chat widget or via our discord server.
