That’s over $26 in mining fees to send $3 worth of USDC…

Cost of having all time highs any moment… go mine some eth with a gpu!

I would recommend using a wallet that lets you choose a custom fee. No need to pay this much unless the transaction is really urgent.

Yes, being able to choose your own fee is critical. Eth fees are more expensive than bitcoin fees now.
