This surge in activity coincides with the introduction of the Fantom Inscription FRC-20 protocol, similar to Bitcoin ordinals. The FRC-20 protocol has sparked significant interest in crypto, offering new possibilities for token inscription and NFT creation.

Despite the high gwei values, the actual gas fee cost on Fantom remains relatively low. This is considering that 1 Gwei equals 0.000000001 Fantom and that the current Fantom price is around $0.30. Therefore, the current gas fees on the Fantom blockchain, ranging from 11,000 to 12,000 Gwei, translate to approximately $0.0033 to $0.0036.
