Using different contracts on the Terra network, let’s look at the top failed transactions percentage by these contracts. Based on percentages of failed transactions by different contracts, the lowest failed transaction percentage is 4.05 (mTSLA) and the highest is 525.16 (terraswap pool). The maximum number of failed transmissions was recorded on March 14, 2022. As a result, we consider the failed transactions percentage to be increasing.

From the above analysis,

  • Out of all failed transactions, the percentage of failed liquidation contracts transactions is 1.7% .  But the failed percentage of transaction percentages in this pool is 5.1%, which comes in second highest percentage of failed transaction percentages of terra failed transactions. As a result, out of all the transactions involving Liquidation contracts, the vast majority of transactions have failed over time.
  • The number of Terraswap failed transactions is over 45% out of all failed transactions, however the percentage of this terraswap pool percentage of failed transactions is only 6% out of all failed transaction percentages.  In other words, terraswap pools’ overall success rate has a higher ratio than other contracts.
