Even with the DAI price around R$ 5.40, the trader order executed a stablecoin buy order for only R$ 0.02. In total, this order bought 231 units of DAI from the trader who made a mistake.
This way, considering the current quotation of the DAI, the user with the open order paid only R$ 4.62 for 213 stablecoin units of the clogged trader. If sold at the current price, the 213 DAI units would yield R$ 1,247 instead of R$ 4.62.
Discarding any problem in the exchange, Bernardo Teixeira confirmed that the DAI sale with a discount of more than 99% was caused by a trader with a large volume order at market price.
“The seller made a mistake for trying to sell more than R$ 200,000 in DAI to the market. The vast majority of the orders in the book were at the normal value of DAI and only when these orders were consumed, were the lowest orders executed”.
