Ethereum Gas Fee

Paying the Ethereum network to move data around

When minting or creating items on Mintbase, we make use of the Ethereum blockchain. The gas fee is the price the creator has to pay and varies according to the network traffic (clog).

The average gas price is typically on the order of about 8 Gwei. However it can increase during times of high network traffic as there are more transactions competing to be included in the next block.

We recommend our users to not mint tokens when the gas price is above 12 Gwei to wait until the price goes down. In order to check the price of the gas fee, simply check on MetaMask when creating a smart contract or on Etherstats.
