If you exchange cryptoassets through Argent you’ll see a ‘Max slippage 1%’ label. This means your trade will never be over 1% more expensive than the displayed price. There is no cap to how much cheaper your trade could be - meaning it's better value for you.
Slippage occurs in both crypto and traditional finance. Slippage is defined as the “difference between the expected price of a trade and the price at which the trade is executed”. It is more likely at times of high market volatility or when a large order is placed for an asset with low liquidity.
A trade can have either positive or negative slippage (meaning your trade gets cheaper or more expensive for you).
