Gas Fee Guide [EN]
Most blockchains require a gas fee to process a transaction. A Gas fee is the fee received from the blockchain and is generated separately from Orbit Bridge fees (Tax, Bridge Fee). If the gas fee occurs in the chain of the asset you want to convert (From chain), you must always have a native token at some cost in your wallet to proceed with the coin conversion normally.
The following transactions usually occur for token conversion:
- Contract approval (approve) transaction
- Transactions for final token conversion
For assets that are converted for the first time, approval is required for the transaction with a first-time contract call and a new address. This has to be done only once for each token. When it is completed, a ‘transaction for final coin conversion’ proceeds, and the gas fee is required. As such, a maximum of 2 consecutive transactions can be performed per bridge gun, so we recommend that you have enough assets in your wallet to use as gas fees in advance. In general, the gas fee required for each chain is as follows.

** () brackets are the recommended holding quantity calculated based on the average gas fee of 1,000 recent bridge transactions (As of 2022-07-13).
As the congestion level of the chain increases, the gas fee rises in real-time, so even if you have the recommended quantity, it may not be possible to proceed with the transaction. In that case, please check the Gas Tracker page for each chain below. In particular, since the gas fee fluctuates severely for ETHEREUM, POLYGON, and FANTOM chains, it is recommended that you check the gas tracker site and reserve a sufficient amount of gas fee if you cannot request a transaction.
