EIP-1559 is part of the London Hard Fork which launched on August 5th, 2021. It will change Ethereum’s market mechanisms to pay for transaction fees. Fundamentally, EIP-1559 gets rid of the first-price auction and replaces it with a fixed-price sale. The significance of this change is that people submitting transactions will no longer have to guess how much gas will be required, as there will be an explicit ‘BaseFee’ to be included in the next block. For users or applications that want to prioritize their transaction, they can add a “tip” to pay a miner.
