Deploying my contract on rinkeby cost ~12 USD in gas fees (using truffle cli). Is it possible for me to specify gas fees/set a limit in the smart contract so it costs me 0.5 USD, but takes longer to deploy ?

Thank you.

Your gas fees are a function of

  • a) the gas required for deploying the contract, and
  • b) the gas price you've chosen.

b) can be altered, but with a lower price usually equating to a slower transaction. If it's much lower than the rest of the current market, then it's unlikely the transaction would be mined into a block.

a) cannot be altered unless you change the contract to make its code more compact or more efficient to execute.

The contract doesn't know anything about fees. All you can do is set a low gas price when deploying and hope the transaction is picked up by a miner.
