What is Gas?

On the Ethereum blockchain, gas is the charge needed to complete a transaction or carry out a contract. Fees are calculated using minuscule fractions of the ether (ETH) cryptocurrency, known as gwei (10-9 ETH). Validators are compensated with gas for the materials required to complete transactions.
