Network Fee

Network fee is the fee to pack transactions into a block. Users can define the amount of network fee. Network fee is paid to consensus node as new block incentive. Theoretically the higher network fee per byte is, the easier corresponding transaction is to be put into a block. In the current main network, a block supports up to 512 transactions.
