🦊 Tenderly TX Preview Snap

Tenderly TX Preview is a MetaMask Snap that enables you to preview transaction outcomes without actually executing a transaction on a production network. This Snap gives you a human-readable overview of transaction outcomes across 42+ supported EVM networks so you can understand their financial implications before sending them on-chain.

More specifically, Tenderly TX Preview snap shows you which assets will be transferred within your transaction should you decide to send it. It also shows you the corresponding dollar values of asset transfers for ERC-20 and ERC-721 tokens.

With Tenderly TX Preview Snap, you can:

  • Get accurate information on asset transfers with dollar values.
  • Avoid paying gas fees for reverted transactions and save funds.
  • Send transactions confidently knowing what’s going to happen.
  • Inspect simulated transactions in greater detail on Tenderly.
  • Share simulated transactions publicly with team members or associates.

What does Tenderly TX Preview Snap do?

Tenderly TX Preview Snap simulates your transactions without sending them on-chain. It sends a request to the Tenderly Simulation API and simulates transaction execution against the most recent state of a selected network. It then returns a detailed response on the simulated transaction execution and provides you with a detailed overview of transferred assets.

The Snap also enables you to examine a simulated transaction in greater detail on Tenderly. Simply click the link to the Tenderly Dashboard, where you can find more information on emitted events, state changes, gas consumption, and more.

Finally, transactions simulated using Tenderly TX Preview Snap are publicly sharable. You can share them with your team or associates even if they don’t have a Tenderly account.
