Ethereum gas fees vary according to supply and demand. But, like avoiding the highway during rush hour, you can mint, buy or sell when gas is lower. We’ve built a tool for you to see when you can get a better deal:
- Go to Rarible Analytics.
- Make sure the site is set to your time zone, which can be adjusted above the heatmap.
- Select Average to explore current network costs. The speed options don’t matter much for beginners unless you need to mint, buy or sell in under a minute.
You can also use the heat map to determine the most cost-effective time to trade.
Important: Always check the live gas tracker. The indication on the heatmap is not a guarantee gas fees are low during that time.
