What to Do if I Send Crypto to a Smart Contract?

Unfortunately, if you have sent tokens to a Smart Contract, there is nothing that can be done and the cryptocurrencies will be permanently lost.

What Is a Smart Contract

Considering what has been explained above, any type of deposit to a Smart Contract is irreversible and the crypto will be lost forever.

Finally, remember that Trust Wallet is a non-custodial wallet application that does not have the ability to prohibit, or otherwise block transactions on the blockchain.
