Definition: crypto slippage

The percentage of difference in digital asset price between the quoted price and executed price. The high demand for a particular crypto token at any given time can cause significant slippage, as much as 1% or more. In less turbulent markets, slippage typically is between 0.05% and 0.10%. Slippage is also common in the stock market.

Crypto Limit Orders
Also like the stock market, people can submit a limit order. A buy limit order will be executed if the price is equal to or lower than the limit. Conversely, a sell limit order executes when the limit price is equal to or higher. See crypto volatility and crypto fee.
