Network fees

To ensure that transactions are processed on the blockchain, outgoing transactions will incur a network fee. This fee is paid to cryptocurrency miners who secure and process transactions on the respective network. This fee is applied when conducting various actions, such as sending crypto to another wallet address, trading one crypto for another, and using dapps or DeFi applications.
