I feel like i’m missing something. Why is there even a fee associated with this?

I won’t even mention the US$110 i spent setting up the organization?

Something’s definitely not aligning here.

Yes I get that, but practically, however, it’s just not feasible cost wise.

You could use xDai or IDChain if you don’t have a need for transacting on Ethereum, specifically.
