Gas Costs


This example assumes you have read and followed the instructions in the Prerequisites and Setup sections.

Obtaining Transactions' Gas Costs

As explained in the Common Transaction Flags section, we can obtain gas costs for different staking transactions from the genesis file by running:

python3 -c 'import sys, json; \
print(json.dumps(json.load(sys.stdin)["staking"]["params"]["gas_costs"], indent=4))'

For our network, this returns:

"add_escrow": 1000,
"burn": 1000,
"reclaim_escrow": 1000,
"transfer": 1000

Hence, we will need to set the --transaction.fee.gas flag, i.e. the maximum amount of gas a transaction can spend, in the following transactions to at least 1000 gas units.
