How to calculate

Light Client Contract's estimateQueryFee() calculates the Verification fee as explained in the Gateway contract.

Verification fees are divided into the following two categories;

  • Relayer fee

  • Oracle fee

Relayer fee

Relayer fee is the fee paid to the Relayer and can be divided into two types of fees:

  • Gas fee

    • Gas costs include base gas costs plus variable gas costs depending on query size

    • Add 21,000 gas per query

  • Rewards for Relayer

    • This is the fee paid to the Relayer

    • At the moment we pay Relayer in Gelato

Oracle fee

This is the fee paid to Oracle, which at this time is accounted for by converting the $LINK paid to Chainlink to the price of the native token by default.

Then use Chainlink's data feed to get the LINK/Native Token rate.
