With an average Ethereum gas fee now sitting at more than$46 for ERC-20 transfers, Ethereum transactions are now more than 20X higher than most other popular blockchains. As Ethereum becomes increasingly expensive to use, it is now essentially unusable for low value transactions in the majority of cases.
