Decimal Places Explained

If you have ever looked at transaction costs or other events priced in milliDOTs and wondered how much that is, we've got the math for you!

One milliDOT is one-thousandth of 1 DOT

One divided by 1,000 = 0.001 

So one milliDOT is 0.001 DOT.

So when you see that e.g., a transaction costs 12.2 milliDOT, you just need to multiply this by 0.001 DOT, which comes to 0.0122 DOT in this case.
