 We know that for making any MetaMask transaction through the wallet you have to pay gas fees for it. But Ethereum gas fees are always high. People are always looking for ways by which they can reduce this fee. Everyone wants to pay less, nobody wants to pay extra. So it is important to know about some methods that you can try to reduce your Ethereum gas fees that are charged on MetaMask Wallet. Let’s dive into the blog to learn about such processes.

What are Gas Fees?

For those who don’t know the basics of the working of crypto then you must continue reading this blog. The stakeholders working on the Ethereum blockchain network for processing the transactions are paid this gas fee for their work. Transactions such as transferring ETH or making smart contracts, etc. The standard unit in which gas fees are measured is Gwei. It is just a small part of the Ethereum. In exact numbers, just one ETH is equal to one quintillion wei.

If you are an existing user, then you might think that the fees charged by this platform are higher than the other but it is not entirely true. It only charges 0.875% on the swaps made by the traders. Sometimes the fee might get high depending on the traffic on the website."

Procedures for minimizing gas fees

Given below are the best ways by which you can minimize your gas fees:

  • Pick Transaction time

At the time of making a transaction, you should check the traffic on the site. Wait till there is low traffic as the rates would be lower at that time. Also at the high traffic time, the processing time would be longer and it could also result in your transaction getting stuck. At high traffic, your transaction would only be prioritized by the stakes if you are willing to pay a big amount of gas fees.

  • Make changes in your Wallet fees settings

Many wallets such as MetaMask Wallet have the setting option which will adjust the network fees of the transaction itself. It will adjust the fees as per the urgency of the transaction. 

  • Compare the prices while buying

At the time of purchasing ERC-20 tokens and ETH, you should compare their prices of them with other alternative platforms as well. And then select the best available price for it. 

Thus these were some of the methods that you can undertake to lower your Ethereum gas fees on the MetaMask Wallet. In comparison, the fees of tokens other than ERC-20 are lower but they also do not have a wide range of variety for the users.

Summing it up

The number of gas fees paid for executing a transaction will decide the transaction processing time of it. The lower the gas fees the more time it will take and the higher the gas fees the faster it would be processed. But one more factor that affects the transaction processing time on MetaMask Wallet is the load on the platform. Therefore, it is always recommended to execute transactions at a low traffic rate.
