insist: The reason why the transaction fees of the second largest digital asset by market capitalization remain low is due to the limited amount of Ether in circulation:
“Ethereum fees remain ultra-low despite the price spike since mid-June. Leaner volume has played a big role in driving down costs and fees can be expected to remain reasonable as long as investors don’t have a fair degree of fear of missing out.”
According to Santiment, Ethereum transactions now cost less than $1 on average.
