I’m receiving an error message that I have “insufficient gas to fund this transaction”

When you receive the error message "You have insufficient gas to fund this transaction" when trying to do a transaction, it means that you don't have enough Ethereum (ETH) in your wallet to cover the cost of the transaction.

Each transaction requires a transaction fee in the form of gas that needs to be paid with ETH. 

Solution: You need to buy ETH and send it to your Ethereum wallet in Metal Vault. $10 worth of Ethereum should enough to complete many transactions. You can use an online USD to Ethereum Converter to find out how much $10 is worth in ETH.
