    Generally, when we transfer tokens from one wallet address to another, there is a transaction fee involved. This transaction fee varies across holding wallets and the network chosen. It also depends on other factors like time of the day, which is a factor of network congestion

    Before we begin, if you haven’t already read our post about crypto transaction fees or gas fees on Ethereum, do give it a read here. It will clear up a lot of questions you may have regarding gas fee.

    Why is there a transaction fee to deposit stablecoins on Flint?

    Transaction fee, or gas fee as it is popularly known, is the fee charged by block validators to validate any transaction on the blockchain. For example, if you send USDT from wallet A to wallet B, using ERC20 as the network, there is a cost involved in validating that transaction. This cost is nothing but the earnings made by the block validator, to validate that block of transactions.

    This fee is not charged by Flint, rather it is deduced at the source wallet itself.

    Can transaction fee change?

    Yes, Transaction fees are never the same. Transaction fees change with the time of the hour and also with the network you have chosen. It is basically a factor of what it takes for the block validator to validate that block of transactions. For a transaction from wallet A to wallet B, the transaction fees might range from as low as a few cents to as high as $20 depending on the chain chosen. Therefore, it is really important to choose the network carefully when transferring coins from one wallet to another.
