Why do I see "insufficient ETH to cover gas fees" error?
We have indicated that the ETH balance in the wallet you are using is not enough to cover the required
gas fee that is paid to the blockchain miners in order to process your transaction.
In order to proceed with your transaction, you will have to do one of the following:
Transfer ETH from another wallet to the one you are using.
Purchase ETH using a credit card from one of our recommended partners.
If the transaction is using ETH (e.g., transferring ETH to another wallet or converting ETH to another token), try reducing the amount you are using and leave a bit more ETH in your balance to cover gas fee.
