Transaction fees on Merlin Chain comprise two components: L2 transaction execution fees and L1 security fees. The L2 transaction execution fee is incurred when executing transactions on the Layer 2 network, while the L1 fee primarily covers the cost of transmitting L2 data and ZK proofs to the Layer 1 network.

The total cost of a transaction is calculated as Gas Cost * Gas Price.
