In Blockchain Cuties Universe when playing on Tron Blockchain there are a few things one should know to effectively utilize it.
First and foremost, everyone needs to know what energy is and who it works
The BCU Smart Contract normally covers a part of the transaction fee. If there is enough surplus energy left on the Contract, 100% of your fee will be covered by BCU. You can see the state of remaining surplus energy on the Contract here (28,110,264 daily energy on the moment of writing).
For reference, this is a table made on the current approximate maximal resource consumption of each different blockchain interaction that is possible within the game.
|Tx Type||Bandwidth||Approx. Avg. Energy Cost||Avg. Fee||Energy Limit||Fee Limit|

Note: if a cutie that was not yet upgraded to erc721 participates in the transaction, the approximate energy cost and energy limit is increased by 150,000 energy for each cutie to be upgraded (up to extra 300,000 energy in case of breeding). Also note, that unlike other methods, "Pet Gift" does not automatically upgrade the cutie, so you need to make sure that cutie is erc721 compliant before gifting it - by, for example, feeding it an Elixir of Life or Potion of Fertility.
Avg. Fee is calculated via the simple formula: (Energy cost value)*(Price of Energy)
Fee Limit is calculated via the simple formula: (Energy Limit)*(Price of Energy). It is the maximum amount of energy that can be consumed by the transaction. Usually, the amount of energy that is used for a transaction is shown in Approx. Avg. Energy Cost column.
