Taking my first steps into the ethereum universe. A cold shower…

Hey, fellow stakers.

I have just started to earn some money and I am taking my first steps into this universe now.

I have been researching ethereum 2.0 and staking and the idea of an environmentally friendly decentralized coin with a multi-purpose blockchain is magic to me.

I took the first step and stoke 30$ of eth in Bin**** (I am now aware there are better DEFI ways to stake). It may not sound like a lot, but I am a self-taught Brazilian developer who is taking its first jobs of my career in Upwork, so I make an average of 5$/hour for now…

After staking I intended to start tinkering with dapps, get familiar with the wallets and this universe. But when I was going to put some ETH in my wallet I saw the fee of 7$. I had assumed that the transactions fees would be around a few cents each, this transaction fee is a cold shower for me… I intended to play around with 20$, get in some pooltogether pools, see what the games are all about, but I have no way of doing it with the fees so high 🙁

I am wondering if this is just a spike, I did some research and it seems that the fees would go down when sharding is implemented, are they really gonna stay that high until then?

​

p.s. sorry about any English mistakes, feel free to point them out if you want to 🙂

What do you think?
