2020 so far has seen Ethereum’s high gas fees hamper the blockchain games running on Ethereum. As a proof-of-work blockchain, Ethereum requires users to pay a small amount of the ETH cryptocurrency to save any transaction into a block. This ETH is paid out to the miners who created each block and secure the entire Ethereum blockchain.
The result is when the gas price is high, Ethereum gaming activity drops.
Previously, high gas prices have lasted for days or perhaps a week at most. But as can be seen via Etherscan, Ethereum has been experiencing very high gas prices since mid-April 2020.
