Ethereum Transaction Fees Hit a 10-Month Low as Gas Costs per Transfer Sink Below $3

The average Ethereum network fee has dropped to the lowest value recorded in over ten months, after fees hit a low of $2.96 per transaction on Sunday afternoon (ET). The last time ethereum transfer fees dropped below the $3 mark was last year on July 11, 2021. Moreover, median fees are even cheaper, as the median-sized ethereum transaction fee on May 29 is around 0.00086 ether or $1.56 per transfer.

Ethereum Gas Costs Sink to Lowest Levels Since July 2021

Ethereum network fees are the cheapest they have been in over ten months and around 12 p.m. (ET) on Sunday, the average ETH transfer fee slid to a low of $2.96 per transaction. As the day continued on, average ether fees have jumped a bit higher to 0.002 ether or $3.56 per transfer.

Ethereum’s transaction fees have not been this low in quite some time. Bitcoin.com News has been covering the fact that gas costs have been dropping since mid-February and during the first week of March, ethereum transaction fees slid to just above the $10 mark.

The last time average ETH fees dropped below $3 was on July 11, 2021, or roughly ten months ago. In fact, during a few weeks in July 2021, average gas costs using Ethereum’s layer one (L1) network were between just under $3.00 to just above $8.00 per transfer.

In addition to average ethereum fees dropping to fresh lows, median-sized gas costs have dropped a great deal this week as well. For example, on March 8, 2022, the median-sized ether fee was 0.0014 ETH or $3.73 per transfer, and today it’s 0.00086 ether or $1.56.

Furthermore, the cost of an Opensea sale is about $10.63 on the high end, and $10.26 for a lower fee. Swapping coins on a decentralized exchange (dex) platform such as Uniswap today is $9.69 on the high end, while on the low end it can cost $9.36 per transaction.

The cost to move an ERC20 token like USDT or USDC, is about $4.37 per transfer. In terms of Ethereum’s aggregate 24-hour ETH mining rewards, miners pulled in approximately $50,241,489 on Sunday, May 29. That’s around 94.7% of the fees bitcoin (BTC) miners acquired on Sunday, as bitcoin miners captured $53,035,200 in BTC mining rewards during the past 24 hours.

Layer two (L2) transfer fees to send ethereum (ETH) are also quite low on Sunday. Zksync transactions are around $0.04 to send ethereum and $0.09 to swap coins. Loopring’s ether transaction fees are the same, at $0.04 per transfer, but swapping a coin will cost $0.45 using Loopring. Using Optimism will cost $0.12 per ether transfer and leveraging Arbitrum One will cost $0.23 to move ethereum.

Boba Network’s ether transaction fees are $0.17 right now, and the cost to swap a token using Boba is $0.35. When ETH fees are low, it’s a good time to transact if there’s a need to move ethereum or an ERC20, swap tokens, or conduct a sale on a non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace.
