EOS utilises an account system with a resource staking mode, hence any actions executed on the EOS blockchain consumes resources, including the creation of EOS accounts. To complete the EOS account creation process, another EOS wallet with sufficient EOS is required to pay for the required resource.
Currently, imToken supports 4 methods for EOS account creation:
- Pay with ETH, self-registration (Please make sure that the ETH wallet under the same identity has sufficient ETH balance).
- Holder of TFT (TokenFans Token), will have the privilege of free account creation.
- Share the QR Code with a friend to assist with account creation.
- Contact the imToken support team for assistance with account creation.
Proceed to the wallet management page, click on “Select an EOS account” followed by “Register for an EOS account” to go to the registration page.
The owner key and active key will be displayed at the registration page, please input the desired EOS account name (12 characters consisting of only a-z and 1-5).
Then finally, proceed with the desired method of registration.
