Basically, the title as I’m really curious, but also how/when are the shield/unshield minimums reviewed with changing crypto values (or are they)?
As of now, there are still transaction costs involved (incurred by incognito) for sweeping funds from your temporary address to either the smart contract (ETH) or regular wallets to to be multi-sig (other).
Soon there will be the ability to interact directly with the ethereum contract. This will make all of us incur the gas cost but we are also able to pay lower gas fee. For whatever reason, incognito chooses to pay the fastest and highest gas price without giving us a choice. There are reasons for this but basically transaction fees affect a lot of aspects of incognito.
