 Gas Usage

  • Ethereum paid for your transactions is called Gas.
  • Gas Price: Amount of Ethereum used per unit of Gas. This determines the speed of your transaction.
  • Gas Limit: The maximum units of Gas you will pay. If this is set too low, your transaction can be refused for being Out of Gas.
