I write a simple contract to do a flash loan from aave and interact with uniswap in it. I found out that no wETH is sent to my contract after swaping on uniswap. Transcations are here: https://kovan.etherscan.io/tx/0xc98a9b944ef4815c95fd8308cec304cc3052e51f696258dbf23f90762c05008a enter image description here

in which 0x68c78e23a27068fe4e2348b5b3cd6cfff45a0695 is my contract address

here is my code:

        uint[] memory amounts = uniswapRouter.swapExactTokensForETH(daiAmount, 0, path, address(this), deadline);
        //emit GetDestAmount(amounts[1]);

It will be grateful if anyone can help, thanks!

    From the transaction hash details 0.000109756275610263 unwrapped ethers were sent to the contract 0x68c78e23....

  • Thanks Ismael, but which transaction are you talking about? I can only see address 0x7a250d5630b4cf539739df2c5dacb4c659f2488d received 0.000109756275610263 unwrapped ethers rather than my contract

    It is the transaction linked in the question. First 0xd0a1e3 transfer ethers to 0x7a250d and then 0x7a250d transfer to 0x68c78e. Looking at 0x7a250d swapExactTokensForETH implementation near the end it calls withdraw from WETH to unwrap ether.
