Gasless Transfers With Wyre Wallets

Sending crypto without gas between Wyre wallets.

What is gas? Gas, or miner fees, are assessed by the blockchain your chosen tokens are operating on. These fees help support the network and incentivize miners to keep it secure. For example, ERC20 tokens live on the Ethereum blockchain, and token holders must pay gas fees in ETH to move funds on the blockchain. These fees can be quite substantial if the network is busy or congested. Moving crypto and tokens between Wyre wallets can save on transfer costs dramatically with gasless transactions.
