Insufficient BNB to cover network fee

The Network Fee, also called the ‘miners’ fee or simply Gas is a transaction fee that is charged to users when performing Blockchain transactions. The fee is collected to reward miners for maintaining the underlying Blockchain network. You need to pay the network fee to ensure your coin transfers arrive in a timely manner.

Does this mean I need to have some sort of currency like ETH in my wallet if I want to buy and recieve tokens like Elrond?

Ive currently purchased 200$ cad worth of Elrond and signed up to trust wallet and given my ETH adress to recieve the tokens like Elrond states, but I havnt gotten my Elrond coins yet! Its been hours and hours!?

You do not need fees to receive an ERC20 in your wallet but you need an ETH fee to transfer it from your wallet to an exchange or another wallet. @johndoe123

Thank you, im wondering also why ELROND would ask for my ETH adress to send the tokens to and not my ELROND adress?
And also why I still havn’t recieved my ELROND through my ETH adress?

Can anyone who has ELROND in there trust wallet - explain to me please how they got it from the ELROND site threw there ETH adress into there trust wallet? Apparently Trust Wallet and Elrond and doing this together but its completely not user friendly what so ever.

Thanks for everything

Found out where all that ERD was hiding, had it so I couldnt see ERC20 elrond in trust wallet LMFAO. im dumb. anyways. found my 200$.

So " Erc20<>ETH compatible ERD will be swapped to native ERD after mainnet at 30th July."
pretty much means that ERD wont have to go threw ETH anymore and itll be its own ‘platform’ in a way?

What moves do you consider / what do you see happening with this mainnet?

@Davim do you have BNB BEP20 too? To cover transaction fees.

I understand how to change the gas fee but if it’s interacting with a complex smart contract and gas is high 200+, sometimes I’ll be hit with a “ETH transaction fee can’t be over 0.1” error message.

Hi @guru_g, that kind of error shows up since the gas fee is greater than your current balance. You need to add more ETH to your wallet or you can change the gas fee.

I have a sufficient ETH balance (well over 0.1), yet I encounter the same error every time-

“Network Fee is too high. Max available: 0.1 ETH”

Could it be a bug?

Hey, I’m seeing the same problem with enough ETH in my wallet. Could it be because ETH is BEP20?

@mcolgiu, it looks like you don’t have ETH in your wallet. You need to have ETH so you can pay for the network fees.

@guru_g, please update the app to the latest version and try again. Let me know if the issue is still up or if it is already resolved.
