You did it correctly, but it seems like MEW broke the signing functionality in their latest release. Try using the older version here https://v5.myetherwallet.com.

Any recommendations on if and how to recover the funds from this transaction?

It seems like you swapped $6k cCOMP for dust COMP using ZeroEx. This occurred because you used a Uniswap pool with almost zero liquidity, and you caused massive slippage. Someone else came and equalized the pool shortly after: Ethereum Transaction Hash (Txhash) Details | Etherscan.

Your funds are gone, maybe try complaining to whatever frontend you used for this trade as it gave you a very bad route.

Thank you for the reply. I appreciate the response. A couple of follow up questions as Im trying to make sure I understand.

-When you say ‘front end’ in this case I used Uniswap. Is that what you’re referring to?

-I only chose to use Uniswap when The compound.finance interface wouldn’t convert my CCOMP to COMP when I tried to disable it as collateral.

-when you say someone else came in and equalized the pool, could you elaborate on that more.?

Would you recommend an alternative to Uniswap for transactions like this in the future? I obviously won’t be using that app again.

Does Compound Labs offer any support for this sort of thing or nah?

Yeah I’m referring to the website you used. The fact that it let you execute that trade is sad on their behalf. The Compound.finance interface allows you to convert cCOMP to COMP and should be used for this type of transaction.

Unfortunately, there is nothing Compound Labs or the Compound protocol can do for you at this point.

I am planning to submit a proposal which returns these funds to @fedevido. This proposal will use code as written in PR #193. The proposal has been reviewed and signed off by OZ as seen here. We will recover the WBTC sent to the comptroller and send 90% back to 0x6918fe32bb0ccfba961c554699c1b506ed0bd458 which sent the WBTC in tx 0x5a4e6a6f29894914be5250d793fa2bb6d98a01d13528ea0d1f39afa731934629.
