Short answer is yes. However, we are not in charge of that, if we had the option we would make all transactions for $MOGULS free. We have to reward the people doing the hard work of making transactions happen, so there is what is called “gas” to make transactions happen.
Side-note: its weird all this eco-conscious talk by the crypto community, but even in crypto fossil fuels win. The system should really change “gas fee” to “Telsas fee, tels fee, volt fees, etc” since the system runs on electricity pioneered by Tesla.
