Hello,

I'm trying to transfer tokens from my Wallet to ForkDelta. The default setting is 250000 gas limit and 4 gwei.

How do I calculate what the bare minimum needed (without risk of failed transaction) using Ether Gas Station?

I tried 25000 gas limit with 4 gwei but ran out of gas.

If you use the default, it would cost 0.001 eth just to send your tokens from your wallet to ForkDelta. That's kinda crazy.

it is a big problem sometimes. but you can get over it by increasing "gwei" from 4 to  5.
it will work fine.

or you can always check this website before any transaction : https://ethgasstation.info/
and you will see safe low gas suggestion.

If you use 25.000 GWEI, you will meet out of gas every transaction. i usually use minimum 150.000 GWEI for transaction with 2 GWEI gas is always success to send.

Thank you for your answer. I had to ask the token group of the token I'm interested in moving to FD.

You're right.

They said that normal ETH transactions require like 21000 gas limit.

But for token transactions, the minimum is actually higher. But it's very hard to find documentation on this minimum, and certainly, ethgasstation.linfo doesn't speak to the token tx minimum because I guess it has to do with smart contracts, which are moer complicated.

So the group told me that the minimum range is between 50,000 to 100,000.

Iz like russian roulette because if you use 50,000 gas limit and it fails, then you lose the gas you tried to use! Which might not be a big deal, like maybe a couple of $0.0x. But when Ethereum gets big again, you're looking at losses int he $x.xx range.

Anyway, someone said to try 100,000 minimum, and you said 150,000 minimum. So I'm going to experiment with that today. . . . hopefully I won't get super burned but whatever.

Thanks again.

I think your best bet would be to go on a sub-reddit related to the coin you  want to withdraw from ForkDelta.
Cause from what I heard, it can be quite different according to the difficulty of the contract it will deal with.
The more operations the contract needs to perform, the more computer-calculation it will use, and of course, the more pricest it will be for you.
But you're right, that's a kind of "guess-game", and that's why you should ask to people who had yet faced that question with the coin you want to withdraw.
Otherwise, you just have to try, and maybe lose a little bit of your gas in that guessing operation.

Whhhooohhhh, I have my first Merit point on that post above!!
Thank you so much LoveCove. I really didn't expect to receive a merit for that post.
What a surprise, I feel like I have just been deflowered...!!!  Grin

Beforehands, I really thought it was impossible to receive one, and now, I know that was false.
That gives me good incentives to try to write quality posts!

Thank you again LoveCove !  Wink

25000 gas is too small to transfer token. Make gas and gwei 2 or 3 or 6 if you want fast. I usually go to gwei 3 and it moves very fast
