“Gas fees” are the transaction fees that users pay to miners on a blockchain protocol to have their transaction included in the block. The system works on a standard supply and demand mechanism. If there is more demand for transactions, miners can choose to include the transactions that pay more, compelling users to pay more to have their transactions processed quickly and efficiently. Users of Ethereum can also choose to pay more for faster transactions.
Luckily, we introduced a New Scaling Solution in July 2021 which removes the friction and issues that come with fluctuating gas fees. Read all about how this has improved our community's Sorare experience in our blog.
