I sent 400 uni from brave wallet to uni metamask wallet, nearly 3 days ago it never showed up.

I'm very new to this and probably should have not done it but in my brave browser wallet i had 400 UNI as well as some smaller cheaper coins. I tried to send my UNI to my Metamask wallet. Not sure if i messed it up somehow here is the details: https://etherscan.io/tx/0x777441d3783417d0429c84522e374398c105bb31b5434383de27b1340bf4c134

Any help appreciated.


You sent your 400 UNI tokens to the UNI contract itself. Unfortunately, this means that you lost them forever. When you are transferring ERC-20 tokens, the "to" field must be the address of another Ethereum account, not the address of the ERC-20 contract itself.
