Uniswap stole my gas fee

Hi

I have tried to swap erc20 token called MTO. I transferred some eth to my trust wallet to cover gas fees when swapping on uniswap.

I put down 1222mto and tried to swap for eth. I received the confirmation. They took the gas fee. But there was no swap. I still have the same amount of MTO but eth gas fee was taken . This is very annoying. Please can you help.

Here is the transaction details

Hello @CRYPTOJOY When swapping tokens for the first time, you have to approve it first to be spendable. And, that is what you did just now.

Since you are done approving the token, you need to enter the amount that you want to exchange then press the swap button.

All in all, you will confirm two transactions: approve and swap

NB: Both token approval and swapping transactions needs gas fees.

Hello i have the same problem but dont know how to slove it?

Hello, I have a problem with two transactions. Yesterday, when you traded USDT for OBORT

0xc975ece7f8ce307bdd10a114c94d6844146179f0f256473b1237aa0a07912883

the eth transaction fee was charged from my account, but I did not receive any OBORTECH tokens.

Today, however, I wanted to exchange a pair of USDT for ETH and also charged a fee for the exchange in ETH, but I did not receive ETH tokens from this transaction!
