Warning: Failure condition of 'send' ignored. Consider using 'transfer' instead.

Is this a new compiler warning, and what exactly does it mean?

1 Answer 1


transfer reverts in the case that the call to the address given fails. send on the other hand doesn't, and instead returns true/false for a success/failure. If you don't do anything with that failure condition, then you get that warning
