The dissuading part of Ethereum for retail investors is the aspect of the enormous gas fees. This is making the network phase out smaller transfers, building an ecosystem for only the wealthy. But it’s somewhat different in the case of Cardano (ADA), the archest rival of the leading smart contract platform.
These enormous transaction fees have made it easier for Cardano to compete with Ethereum. Even Charles Hoskinson, who created Cardano confessed that the competition would have been difficult if Cardano is facing a similar issue as Ethereum.
Ethereum (ETH) Transaction Fee Is Considerably High Compared To Cardano (ADA)
In a recent data from Messari, shared by a crypto enthusiast, Rick McCracken, Ethereum needed millions of dollars compared to Cardano’s a few thousands of dollars, to move almost the same amount of crypto in USD.
In the data where transactions of crypto assets over 24 hours were recorded, it cost Cardano $7.4 million to move $14.7 Billion worth of ADA, while Ethereum had to pay $26.35 million to move just $13.48 billion.
Captioning the chart provided by Messari, Rick McCracken tweeted, “Cardano moved $14.7 Billion for $7.4 thousand in fees. Ethereum moved $13.48 Billion for $26.35 MILLION in fees. In 24 hours.”
