Fees & Integrator Economics

Web3 mainly works based on the PAYGO (i.e. pay-as-you-go) TX model, meaning the user has to pay for every TX, pay for every email, message, or data transfer. To make on-chain communication more viable, work is being done that will in parallel to PAYGO also enable subscription-based models, so the users will be able to pay monthly SUBSCRIPTION-FEE to access block space and communicate without the hurdle of paying for every TX.

Clarification: Parallel to the underlying L1/L2 TX GAS cost, the PROTOCOL-FEE is also settled on the smart contract level and is applicable for every communication TX. Total user cost equals the sum of the L1/L2 TX GAS, the PROTOCOL-FEE cost, and the cost of decentralized storage. Fees are handled by the [AppFeeManager] smart contract.

OCC Protocol v.1 build-in monetization layers enable independent out-of-the-box integrator economics, permitting developers to focus on application UI/UX features. Level 1 (i.e. Immu3) integrators can set the desired protocol BASE-FEEs, while Level 2 integrators can set their protocol DAPP OWNER-FEEs.

Immu3 Fee Table

Clarification: GAS usage is defined in WEI & GWEI and multiplied by GAS price, which results in true L1/L2 GAS cost.

User cost calculation estimate per Email TX

Let's assume that:

  • L1/L2 TX GAS COST = 0.003$

  • PROTOCOL BASE-FEE = 0.0025$

  • DAPP OWNER-FEE = 0.0075$

  • TOTAL USER COST = 0.013$
