After reaching its final level in November 2020, the average Ethereum gas cost is now under $ 1.
Ethereum Gas costs are down
The Ethereum network experienced transaction costs of up to 69 cents on Saturday, which hadn’t happened in the previous 19 months. The next day the gas price reached $ 1.57 or 0.0015 ETH, which is the same as the December 2020 number. Transaction costs on the network now range from 20 cents to just 20 cents, with 20 cents being the highest.
The price of gas in the Ethereum ecosystem ranged from $ 0.01 to $ 0.10 from July 2016 to May 2017. Users are now assessed a substantial cost; in May 2021, the average transaction cost reached $ 69 per transaction. The highest price of gas shares in May 2022 was $ 196,683.
In particular, Ethereum blocks have struggled to be widely used, heavily for users, due to the high gas or network costs, payments required to complete transactions on the blockchain. NFT holders appear to be profiting from the decline due to reduced quantities.

DappRadar reported that 50,466 people had traded assets on OpenSea, up 10.14 percent from the previous day. At the time of writing, NFT’s largest market trading volume increased 34.18 percent to $ 15.92 million.
All of the top 20 collections, led by Ethereum Name Service, DopeApeClub, God Hates NFTees, Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC), and Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC), were transacted on Ethereum, according to data from DappRadar.
Price Slumps Further
The ethereum price analysis is bearish due to consolidation near $ 1,050 and further recovery decline. As a result, ETH/USD is prepared to decline further and exceed the $ 1,000 local support. Once done, the previous swing of less than $ 900 should be challenged next week.
The population decline approached the $ 1040- $ 1000 area which was a close support and was accompanied by an increase in demand pressures. The smaller price rejection candle at this time was an attempt by sellers to eliminate this unsuccessful support.
Therefore, the renewed positive momentum could encourage buyers to re -hit the $ 1260 overhead barrier, providing an opportunity for ETH holders to recover.

At the beginning of the week, an important new swing foundation was established in the ethereum price movement. After falling more than 21%, the ETH/USD price reached its lowest point at $ 1,000.
From there, the quick upward reaction continued to the $ 1,115 level, where Friday’s recovery decline was further observed. After oblique consolidation, lower local highs and lows are set.
As of now, the $ 1,050 level has been the main trading range, with this morning pushing further gains. As a result, ETH/USD is ready to drop even further and is trying to extend its current less than $ 1,000.
If traders continue to be persuaded by sellers to get past the lower support, the next decline could cause the ETH price to drop 12.56% to $ 880.
