Creating a trustline means granting permission for your Albedo wallet to recognize and interact with TFT tokens on the Stellar network. It allows you to view your TFT balance, send and receive TFT tokens, and engage in swapping or trading activities involving TFT within the Albedo wallet.
To add a trustline, go to the “Balance” section, and click “Add trustline” button.
A popup window will appear presenting Albedo's asset list. In the search field that appears, type in 'TFT' as the asset you want to add.
It is important to ensure that you also see the name "threefold.io" next to the logo , as this verifies that you are selecting the genuine TFT asset associated with ThreeFold. Beware of imposters or fraudulent assets that may attempt to mimic TFT. ThreeFold cannot assume responsibility for any errors or mistakes made during the trustline creation process done by users. If you have any uncertainties or doubts, it is always recommended to seek assistance from official support channels or trusted sources to ensure the accuracy of the trustline configuration.
Confirm the selected asset by pressing “Add trustline”.
Congrats! You have now successfully added TFT as an asset to your Albedo wallet.
You can now store TFT by depositing it from another wallet by copying your public Albedo wallet address and sending it to the withdrawer.
You can also transfer TFT to another stellar wallet by clicking the 'Transfer' icon on your wallet navbar and specify the amount of TFT and the receipient's wallet address and memo (if any), and click 'Transfer' button to finish the transaction.
