Dust - what is it?

Dust is a concept that denotes the minimum balance of tokens or crypto coins in a user’s account. Their value is usually so low that the amount technically cannot be processed as a blockchain transaction. Often, dust is considered to be the balance of a cryptocurrency asset, the total value of which will be much less than the amount of the commission that must be paid to validate the transaction. Also, dust may remain after active trading on cryptocurrency exchanges because there are usually clear restrictions on the minimum amount.

To reduce the risk of dust accumulation in different types of cryptocurrencies, it is necessary to clarify the minimum withdrawal amount through a specific service, as well as the size of the commission, before making transactions.
