What is Crypto Dust?

Crypto Dust is a byproduct of cryptocurrency trades and transactions. Essentially, it refers to a trace amount of cryptocurrency that's left over after trades or transactions are complete. Typically, it has negligible monetary value and can even be lower than the minimum trading amount. This can prevent it from being traded on the Exchange.

How do I convert my Crypto Dust to CRO?

Step 1: Navigate to the Crypto Dust feature via the Services or Wallet screen.

Step 2: Select the balance(s) you wish to convert to CRO before tapping Review Conversion.

For your convenience, the first 20 small balances will be pre-selected.

Step 3: Review the conversion quote and tap Confirm Conversion. Please note that the quote you’re seeing will expire in 15 seconds.

Step 4: Congratulations! You have converted your small balance(s) to CRO.

If there are still small balances remaining in your Crypto Wallet, you will see the number of these balances displayed in a message like the one below.
