Hello, when you send crypto with Spot you can choose between two modes for the Network fees: ⚑️ Express or 🚲 Eco.

⚑️ Express mode: it's very fast (usually a few minutes) but it costs more.
🚲 Eco mode: it's much slower (up to a few hours) but it's also cheaper.

The Network fees you will pay are displayed before you send.

πŸ‘‰ Network fees are paid to a cryptocurrency network (such as Bitcoin or Ethereum). Those fees are mandatory fees to process transactions or other crypto interactions. Those fees depend on the current state of the network.

πŸ‘‰ Those Network fees are never paid to Spot.

🚨 When a lot of people are sending & trading the same crypto at the same time, network fees can be very high and transactions can also take more time than usual to arrive.

If you are in a hurry please use the Express mode as we cannot "accelerate" transactions once they are sent (for now).
