What is an Ethereum gas fee?

All transactions that are published onto the public Ethereum blockchain will require a transaction fee, otherwise known as a 'gas' fee. This is a small amount of Ether that must be sent alongside your Minds token payment in order for the transaction to be processed.

Does anyone know what the proper gas price should be set per single ethereum (1.0) when sending to external wallet?

Note that original Ethereum tools, like wallet, moved away from gas price. and show the transactions fees in Ether. Also a slider is used so the user knows what price range to use. Much better user experience.

Could someone help explain Gas Price/Gas? I'm trying to withdraw tokens into Ethereum and after entering key, I'm taken to screen where I choose "gas" and "gas price" with zero explanation of what I'm looking at or what I need to do.

Hi, I am unable to withdraw Minds to my ethereum wallet. There is .003 ethereum in my wallet to cover gas fee. But, when I try to withdraw it shows an error message and withdraw not completes. With this message, I have attached the screenshot of that error message. Please check that screenshot. Now, how can I withdraw my account's Minds tokens? Also, I have sent you an email about it.

Can someone care to explain gas price and gas for me? How does one convert Minds Tokens into ETH, if in fact that is what one can do? Gas is, by default 300000. What is that 300000 of? And what is the recommended gas price to ensure that a transaction takes place? Does 300000 gas convert to a smaller amount of ETH? How do I calculate that? And how does that then convert to Minds Tokens? Basically, this newbie has a LOT of questions. There are no answers in the FAQ section about these specific questions.

How do I withdraw tokens to ethereum wallet? Says I don't have enough to cover gas fee but the amount says otherwise

Just an idea to improve Minds would be to create a setting for exchanging tokens for Ethereum and Butcoin (Maybe a market of users). I mean that is what a friend that was introduced to this app told me. ;)

Apologies but I'm really struggling to understand what this "gas" is in relation to moving tokens from "Offchain" to "Onchain". What are these numbers that are here by default? what do they mean? should i change these numbers?

What buttons do I need to press (and in what order) to get test Ethereum into my wallet?

When I try to stick my tokens on the Main Ethereum Network (presumably converting them into Ethereum), I still get an error message saying I have insufficient funds. MetaMask still calculates the transaction in terms of cents (not Ethereum), and the transaction fee is like maybe 150 tokens or so (90 cents).

have tried to withdraw Minds tokens using the wallet I set up with Metamask and keep getting this error: Your Ethereum wallet is locked or connected to another network. The problem is I can't find where that is happening. It is on the Rinkerby Test Network and there has been nothing done to it with the exception of depositing some ETH in it to cover the "gas fees". Is there something I am missing here??

It's too complicated of a process to withdraw my offchain tokens to my onchain address. 1) I have no idea how much "gas" to spend for withdrawing the transaction. I tried with the default amount of gas and it's not working. 2) Once I am able to successfully withdraw into my onchain wallet, how do I go about exchanging the ethereum for real money?

Tried to withdraw and got this. What is this GAS PRICE and GAS and how can I determine what amount of it should I put in this form? P.S. In addresses I added my existing ETH address and when I tried to withdraw I put in its private key.

Is there already an official three-letter sign for the Minds Token. For example Bitcoin has BTC, Ethereum has ETH, litecoin has ltc

I tried to withdraw some offchain tokens a few days ago, inserted the private key and approved the suggested gas price. I still didn't get anything in my reciever address till this day, nothing is transferred from the offchain address. In addition, when i try to re-withdraw the same amount, it seems like i don't have enough gas, since no gas price is being suggested to me anymore. What is the problem here?
