Moving Ether, Transferring an ERC20, and Swapping Tokens on Ethereum Is Costly — Tim Beiko Shares EIP-4488 Insights
Following the London upgrade during the first week of August, it was assumed that EIP-1559 would relieve at least some of the pressure. However, the average transaction network fee continued to rise after the London upgrade reaching, $62 per transfer on November 9. Today, ether gas cost is lower as

“The cost of rollup txns is a function of the data they post back to the Ethereum mainnet,” Beiko
It’s literally data we add to each transaction. If we lower the gas cost, and keep the same gas limit, we then have bigger blocks, which can be problematic in the short and long term. Short term, it increases the worst case block size. If, for example, calldata was 1 gas/byte, with a 30m gas block, you’d get a 30MB block (average right now is

Currently, ethereum (
“Fees on Ethereum are *high* and also aren’t trivial on rollups today (~3-4$ for a
Clients may locally prune this historical data — This change will result in less bandwidth usage on the network as clients adopt more lightweight sync strategies based on the PoS weak subjectivity assumption.

While open-source programmers prepare to address the network’s issues, alternative blockchain networks continue to advance on Ethereum’s heels.
