As bull market congestion looms, is your infrastructure ready to carry the extra load?

The average gas price in GWEI may still be low compared to the ‘bull market’ congestion of 2020-22. However, when history repeats itself and average gas price spikes for months at a time, how prepared is your Dapp?

Oracles are integral infrastructure, and their usage is intrinsically linked to the cost of gas, particularly on the Ethereum mainnet. Oracle providers, which foot the bill for this cost, learned the hard way during this high GWEI period that ‘free-to-read’ Oracles are unsustainable. For example, at the height of congestion, the daily gas cost for an Oracle spiked to over $41,000 for one specific 24-hour period.
