Base Fee

The Base Fee in Ethereum (or in similar fee plus tip gas pricing protocols) refers to the protocol-determined price floor for transaction block inclusion. This fee is calculated using information from previous blocks to prevent long periods of network congestion by gradually increasing the base fee after consecutive full blocks. In the case of Ethereum, each subsequent full block increases the base fee of the next block by 12.5%.
