Gas Limits & Gas Price

To get an operation done in Ethereum, the sender of the transaction must specify a gas limit before they submit it to the network & a gas price: 

  • The gas limit is the maximum amount of gas the sender is willing to pay for this transaction. If an operation has LOW gas, then the miners won’t even pick it up because it doesn’t have enough gas to finish the computation.
  • The price is the amount of gas the sender is willing to pay. If an operation has LOW fees, then it might have just enough gas to cover it but still, the miners won’t be chomping at the bits to pick it up because an operation with low fees isn’t economically appealing for them.

Purpose of Ethereum Gas system

Incentivization. Like any proof-of-work peer-to-peer system, Ethereum is heavily dependent on the computational power of its miners. More miners, more computational power, more secure and fast the system.

To attract more miners Ether needs to make the system as profitable a...

Ethereum as electricity

If bitcoin is digital gold, Ethereum is alike the power grid, powering an ecosystem of worldwide decentralized applications

The gas is the metering system for the consumed power. And ETH is the currency used to pay for running the software and maintaining the network.

From Bitcoin to Smart Contracts

Bitcoin created a decentralized monetary system which can transfer money from one person to another. That only allowed for monetary transactions, there was no way to add conditions to those transactions:

Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM)

Ether is made of a blockchain (an immutable database) and a world decentralised computer (EVM), a virtual machine in which all the smart contracts function in Ethereum. 

The EVM is a simple yet powerful Turing Complete 256-bit virtual machine. Turing Complete means that given the re...

Ethereum Gas

Gas is a unit that measures the amount of computational effort that it will take to execute certain operations. Each and every line of code in an Ethereum smart contract requires a certain amount of gas to be executed.

Suppose you are going on a road trip:

    Ethereum Gas Refund

    If an operation runs out of gas, then it is reverted back to its original state like nothing actually happened, however, the operation generator must STILL pay the miners the fee for their computational costs and the operation gets added to the blockchain (even if it has not been...

    The attributes of a Smart Contract

    The attributes of a Smart Contract

    A smart contract functionality needs to be 3 things: 

    Deterministic: it gives the same output to a given input every single time.

    Terminable: contracts by definition, must be capable of termination in a given time limit.

    Ethereum Gas is EXPENSIVE

    When two numbers are added a million times in Ethereum it costs ~$26.55 in fees. On Amazon AWS system it costs $0.000000066.

    This means that computation in Ethereum is 400 million times more expensive!


    • A well-written contract would likely move such...

      This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

      Sean Green

      Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

      Shankul Varada

      I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

      Giovanna Scalzone

      Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
