The new imToken, now with EIP-1559

You may have heard about EIP-1559 before. Ethereum’s latest network upgrade, which is responsible for burning over 1M ETH until today as well as bringing better gas estimates. 🔥

The good news for you: With the latest version 2.9.8, imToken supports the EIP-1559, burning ETH and also giving you better gas estimation to our 12 million users. 💸 Plus, imKey supports EIP-1559 as well.

Included in this new version:

  • ⛽Supporting Ethereum EIP-1559 for better gas fee estimation
  • 🔺Supporting more EVM-compatible chains, like Celo & Avalanche
  • 🃏Supporting SVG NFTs
  • 🔨More optimizations and fixes

Better gas fee estimates for you with EIP-1559

Before the London hard fork, gas fees were calculated via an auction mechanism leading to high volatility. Sending a transaction, it was hard to predict which gas price to choose.

Gas price volatility decreased with EIP-1559

With EIP-1559, the gas calculation is more stable by adjusting the block size dynamically.

Don’t worry if that seems too complex. For you, it simply means fewer stuck transactions, and less transactions where you overpay the gas fee. The image above shows how the gas fees became more stable directly after the adoption of EIP-1559.

More successful transactions: Thanks to EIP-1559’s more accurate gas fee prediction, you will rarely have transactions stuck, like in the old days

Less overpaid transactions: Less spikes in gas prices mean no more waiting for picking the right time to send a transaction

Customizable: Simply set your transaction speed, or customize MaxFee, MaxPriorityFee and Gas in the custom settings
