This is in comparison to Ethereum (ETH) transaction fees which spiked at a high of $71.72 in May, falling to its current level at an average of $5.12.

While nominal fees are the standard, exorbitant amounts have also been known to occur. Last December one holder paid $82,000 in fees to send just $1.18 of BTC.
