35$ in Trust wallet and cant swap/send

hello everybody :slight_smile:

Hi, I have 20$ optimism and 14$ USDC and when I try to exchange/send it it says I don’t have enough balance… strange, what do I do?


Hello @diogomeira11
You need to have Optimism Ethereum for gas fees like the error message says.


So I learned that Optimism is a layer 1 blockchain that runs on ETH. So to follow up Tobi response you need to pay for fees and on that networks uses ETH, so you need to have the coin in Optimism.

@dalaberas Yes you’d need Optimism Ethereum as gas for transactions on the Optimism network.
