What are the Fees to Unwrap Solana (SOL) tokens?

The fees for wrapping and unwrapping Solana tokens are minimal due to Solana's high throughput. This is in contrast to Ethereum, which charges about $10 USD for converting ETH to WETH and vice versa.

What are Wrapped SOL Tokens on Solana?

Solana's native token, SOL, powers transactions on the network. To encourage broader adoption and use of the Solana blockchain, the Solana team introduced WSOL, an ERC20 token backed 1:1 by SOL tokens in a secure multisig wallet. Each WSOL token in circulation corresponds to a SOL token on the Solana blockchain.
