Why are the dollar values under the source and destination amounts different?

Created by Kiran Mannam, Modified on Thu, 22 Dec 2022 at 05:50 AM by Kiran Mannam

The source $ value is based upon the current price, an “average aggregated price” subtracted from an external data source that registers actual trades and order books (bid-ask prices) for the main exchanges. 

The destination $ value is based on the Quote value (the estimated number of destination tokens times the current price). The Quote value is after the deduction of CEX withdrawal fees (if applicable). 

Hence, most of the time, the source value is higher than the destination dollar value. But due to optimal routing or in case the source token can be swapped for a better price than the shown current price, the destination value can be higher than the source value (positive price impact).
