I have 1053 USDT and 0.0028 ETH in my metamask wallet.

I want to send 1000 USDT to other address but I faced "Insufficient funds." for ETH.

So, I think I can swap 53 USDT to ETH. But faced same error..

It would be appreciated if anyone could help me.

  • Hi, Majd. Thanks for your help.. So How can i get some ether from USDT I have? James Oct 17, 2021 at 22:13
  • no sadly you need to buy eth from somewhere else (binance or KeCoin) and then transfer them to your wallet (will cost you money). and then you can send your USDT

Long story short is either you wait until the gas prices are realy low or you send some more ETH to make the transactions possible.
Here you can check the gas prices - https://etherscan.io/gastracker
enter image description here On the picture above you can see the Low/Average/High price for the to type of transactions you are trying to do. Currently 1 ETH = 3,760.96$ and your 0.0028ETH = 10$ so there is no way to make any of the transactions you want.

  • Hi, Hristo Todorov, I apprecite your help. How can I get some eth? Is it possible to get eth from USDT? Oct 17, 2021 at 22:09
  • You can get ETH from USDT only throughout swap which you can not perfom. The other way is to send some ETH to your address. The same way you got ETH in your address initially. Oct 20, 2021 at 12:44
