Note the Gas Fee

Gas fees are transaction fees on the Ethereum blockchain. Gas fees vary based on network usage (i.e. time of day). FYI - Recently, under $150 seems like a good deal, though you can occasionally find it below $100 in the late hours of the night. For those curious, the Ethereum community is eagerly awaiting for Ethereum 2.0 where we expect gas fees to dramatically go down.
