Committee decides to cut transaction fee.

Vechain Foundation held voting to reduce transaction fees, starting on March 30 and ending on April 6.

71.08% of community members voted to reduce 1% of gas fees.

The voting results was then transferred to the Steering Committee for final verdict. According to Thursday’s announcement, 5 of the 7 committee members voted in favor of lowering the transaction fee. VeChain will draw base gas fee to 1e13 Wei in the next 7 days.

The Foundation said it was necessary to reduce gas fees as high transaction fees slow down community interest in Vechain especially large enterprises like Governments, Business etc.
