Theoretically, gas is a measure of consolidation transactions or smart contracts made by miners at their own expense to keep the Ethereum network running.
One gas unit divides the computer costs of the Ethereum and Ether network. These units are unchanged and are subject to the final values used by the miner to make the transaction. The gas used is directly proportional to the difficulty of the transaction. For example, suppose you intend to complete a standard transaction – send an ETH to someone else. This will cost 21,000 units of electricity, but sending an ERC-20 transmission can be very expensive for the computer because the process is very complex.
I doubt not. Gas fees fluctuate depending on demand. The higher the demand, the more ETH prices rise. This is directly linked. Therefore, as long as users wish to pay more to participate in DeFi and other dApps, the higher ETH prices will be. But this is not to say Gas fees must remain at these excessive levels says – Bohdan Prylepa CTO of Prof-it Blockchain Ltd and COO in Bitcoin Ultimatum.
If the transaction is complex and requires 12,500,000 gallons of gas to make, the block can hold the transaction after the miners have made the purchase. This is because this transaction fills the entire block.
Gas is a denominated Ether ( #Ethereum ) unit used to pay for transactions on the # Ethereum blockchain. In other words, this is the price you pay for a block transaction.
However, sometimes due to the large incoming number of transactions, the Ethereum network becomes congested. Transactions become slower, and the price of the gas itself begins to rise. This happens for two reasons:
- With the accumulation of many transactions, miners who extract blocks, and therefore process these duplicate transactions proportionally also become more extensive. Miners begin to “selectively” execute transactions, favoring the transactions with the highest reward. As a result, the gas price starts to rise.
- The users themselves, who make these transactions, begin to charge an increased price so that the transaction is processed as soon as possible. The auction effect pushes the gas price even higher.
It often happens that, unknowingly, users pay too high fees for processing transactions. Of course, this also affects the profitability, eating up part of the profit. However, even those who know about this feature cannot conveniently and quickly track the gas price. This is because you have to open a separate tab with the gas price and constantly monitor it.
In response to this, several convenient services have appeared on the market—for example, a telegram bot from the EtherDrops team. The gas price monitoring function is called Gas price notification.
This feature allows you to conveniently track the gas price (in gwei) and set the values you are interested in to receive notifications. They can be set both above and below the current gas price. This feature will help save money and time on transactions when the Ethereum network becomes congested, which means more expensive and slower.
To use the remainder, go to “Menu” and select “Set gas alert,” then indicate the value of interest (it can be either higher or lower than the current gas price). As soon as the gas price reaches the specified mark, the bot will immediately send you an alert.
The market also has mainstream resources for tracking gas prices. For example, Etherscan offers the same service but with one, but you have to update the page yourself and keep track of your interest levels. However, the site provides many other benefits, so this is a trade-off between usability and features.
