:closed_lock_with_key: Top EOS Wallet Providers :closed_lock_with_key:

The three top wallet we recommend on EOS are Anchor, Wombat and Tokenpoket

Hint: The EOS account you create is stored directly in the RAM on the EOS blockchain and not in a wallet. The EOS wallets are more like authenticators to sign transactions. As long you have your private key, you can use any of the EOS Authenticators (just insert your private key in the wallet to get access to your EOS account).

Create an EOS Account:

Here some graphics to better understand the EOS Wallet:

If you got stuck (no CPU), you can power up for free here: https://eospowerup.io/free

This service is sponsored by boid.com (the social superccomputer) and the EOS community. You can power up your account for free for 24 hours. It should give you 1-2 free transactions. Its free for you, but have in mind, that the EOS community is donating EOS to this contract and is paying for your transactions. To keep the service free, you can donate to the EOS account “eospowerupio”

The three accounts (A,B & C) could be confusing to newcomers who don’t see them as possible examples but as something required.

Great wallet!
But unlock the private key of 0.5 EOS is much more expensive than create an account; and can’t import exiting account

Which is the best wallet to use for EOS, I downloaded the one which seemed from the platform from google play store?

I like Anchor Wallet Version 1.2.0 or higher. Download here https://greymass.com/en/anchor/. Because this wallet offers around 5-10 free transactions per day and after there is an automated resources management, which will take care of the resources. I just have to watch out, that I have some EOS liquid in my account. The wallet will calculate and offer me a transaction fee per transaction, which should be around 0.01 EOS. Like this I don’t have to power up every day :wink:

Powerup? What is power up

“Power up” is the name of a new resource model, which is used for EOS. In short, staking to CPU is no more working. From now on, there is like in ETH, a transaction fee for each transaction someone has to pay. Ether you pay for it, or a wallet or dapp which you use, pay for it.

If you have problem with the new power up model, check here for the solutions:
