Error: Unable to Locate Corresponding Transfer Event Log

This error appears on Etherscan when a sender tries to transfer out more tokens than they have.

Generally, This Can Happen Due to a Few Possible events:

  • When adding a custom token:

    • You specified an incorrect token contract address (resulting in an attempt to send a token that you have none of).
    • You specified an incorrect token decimal (e.g., inadvertently attempting to send 50,000,000 of a token as opposed to 5,000 of it).
  • When sending a default token:

    • You specified a higher amount to send than what you actually own.

How Can I Stop This From Happening?

  • Remove and re-add the custom token.

    • Be sure to specify the correct decimals and token contract address this time.
  • Make sure that you are attempting to send no more than the same amount of tokens that you have.
