Slippage is the difference between the expected price of an order and the price when the order actually executes. The slippage percentage shows how much the price for a specific asset has moved. Due to the volatility of cryptocurrency, the price of an asset can fluctuate often depending on trade volume and activity. For example, a user orders an asset quoted at 10 mZAR per unit. The user places an order for 1 unit at the quote price of 10 mZAR per unit. However, in the time it takes for the order to execute: the price per unit shifts to 11 mZAR. Hence, the user receives 0.9 units of the asset. This is is an unfavourable slippage of 10 percent.
