Will the EIP 1559 make ETH deflationary and reduce gas prices?

EIP, or the Ethereum Improvement Proposal, is a technical document that suggests changes to the Ethereum network as well as the rationale behind them. Usually EIP is discussed among the core Ethereum development community due to it being highly technical.

The EIP should provide a concise technical specification of the feature and a rationale for the feature. The EIP author is responsible for building consensus within the community and documenting dissenting opinions.

The London hard fork brings 5 EIPs .It was deployed on the Ropsten testnet on June 24 and will be deployed at weekly intervals in the remaining ones…

There’s no better way to learn something than getting your hands dirty doing it. We’ll be doing this on a mock environment(Ganache) on the local machine and not on the actual Ethereum blockchain, because deploying to the actual blockchain requires gas fees.

Everyone has heard of bitcoin. Its name has become synonymous with crypto assets ( yes assets, not currency ), and often beginners will refer to both interchangeably.
