Sliding fee schedule

Short ADIs cost more. The length of an ADI is calculated as the number of bytes of the UTF-8 encoded string minus the .acme suffix, not the number of characters. For example, 屋.acme and abc.acme are both counted as 3 bytes long. The current schedule is:
Length
Cost
1
$48000 / 4800000 credits
2
$12000 / 1200000 credits
3
$3500 / 350000 credits
4
$900 / 90000 credits
5
$250 / 25000 credits
6
$70 / 7000 credits
7
$18 / 1800 credits
8+
$5 / 500 credits
All transactions incur a 0.1 credit fee per each 256 bytes over a base 256 bytes. The additional fee is 0.01 credits instead of 0.1 if it is a scratch transaction. Signatures incur a 0.01 credit fee for each 256 bytes over a base 256 bytes.
Except for send tokens, failed transactions paying fees over 1 credit will be refunded less 1 credit. No refund is made for fees less than or equal to 1 credit.
For send token transactions each failed output will refund 1 credit.
