Fixes a major bug that causes Boba transaction fees to appear much lower than they actually are Boba Network Transaction Fees Adapter - CryptoStats
Thanks for the fix!
Can you explain what the bug is? I see you’ve added
gasPrice: 1 to the
estimateGas calls, what does that change add?
By the way, I’m previewing the change with our fancy new diff viewer:
Boba recently changed their fee model (moving away from Optimism’s original fee model). Part of the fee model is that additional gas is added to the transaction to account for the L1 fee. This additional gas is dynamic and depends on the current L1 gas price. However, this additional gas is not added if the gasPrice is zero (which it is by default when estimating gas). See here: boba/state_transition.go at e4cac483c5ae9f1ad45200df333e730a1b18054f · bobanetwork/boba · GitHub
As a result, the cost of a Boba transaction was being significantly under-estimated. Adding
gasPrice: 1 forces the additional gas to be added and makes the estimate accurate again.
Thanks for the explanation, makes sense.
I’ve gone ahead and verified it!
