Does Ethos Charge Fees to Use the Universal Wallet?

The basic functions of the wallet are free to use! Ethos will not charge you to deposit or withdraw your coins. The only costs involved will be the transaction fees that fuel each blockchain, these are sometimes referred to as miner fees. On the Ethereum platform, each transaction that is performed costs gas. This small fee is awarded to miners as compensation for the computational resources they provide the network to process the transaction.
