Welcome to our guide on how to store TFT tokens (Stellar) via the Lobstr Wallet!
Lobster Wallet is a secure and user-friendly wallet designed specifically for the Stellar blockchain. It allows you to store, manage, and transact with your Stellar-based assets, including TFT (ThreeFold Token). In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of setting up Lobster Wallet and storing your TFT (Stellar) tokens. By following the steps outlined in this guide, you will be able to access and manage your TFT assets with ease and confidence using the Lobster Wallet platform.
- XLM: When storing TFT tokens using Lobstr wallet, a certain amount of XLM funding is required to facilitate the sending and receiving of assets on the Stellar network.
If you already have some XLMs stored in another Stellar wallet or exchange, you could simply withdraw them to your new Lobstr wallet account after you complete the signup process. If not, there are multiple ways to acquire XLM and send it to your wallet. One option is to utilize XLM-supported exchanges, which provide a convenient platform for purchasing XLM. Click here to access a comprehensive list of exchanges that support XLM.
As an example, we have created a tutorial specifically focusing on how to buy XLM on Coinbase, one of the popular cryptocurrency exchanges. This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on the process of purchasing XLM on Coinbase Exchange. You can find the tutorial here.
You could also purchase some XLMs directly inside yor new Lobstr wallet account by using Fiat currency payment like credit and debit cards.
For this guide, we will focus on creating the mobile app version of Lobstr Wallet. Go to https://lobstr.co/ from your mobile app and download the Lobstr Wallet App to your mobile phone.
Insert your email address and choose a strong and unique password.
Verify your account by clicking on the 'Verify Email' button in the message sent to your email address.
Press the 'Create Wallet' button if you'd like to create a new Stellar wallet.
Write down your Recovery Phrase, which is needed to recover access to your account in case of a password loss or if your phone is lost or stolen. The word order is very important.
Note: It is essential to save your secret key securely during the process of creating a new account or importing an existing one. The secret key is a critical component that grants access to your wallet and funds. Make sure to store it in a safe and offline location, such as a password manager or a physical backup, to prevent unauthorized access. Do not share your secret key with anyone and exercise caution to protect your assets.
(Optional) Set a federation address, which is the unique name of your new Stellar wallet that can be shared with others to receive funds and click 'Save'.
Congratulations! You just created a new Lobstr wallet account.
To initiate the process of storing TFT in Solar, the first step is to fund your wallet with XLM (Stellar Lumens). Transfer at least 1 XLM to your wallet to activate it.
To purchase Stellar lumens with Lobstr using credit / debit card, you can use the ‘Buy Lumens’ option on the LOBSTR web and mobile apps.
Once XLM is successfuly sent, it will appear on your Lobstr wallet homepage.
To store TFT in your Lobstr Wallet, we will need to have a TFT wallet added into our account. This is done by adding TFT Asset. This will allow you to view your TFT balance, send and receive TFT tokens, and engage in trading activities involving TFT within the Solar wallet.

IMPORTANT: 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.
Congratulations! TFT asset has been successfully added to your Lobstr Wallet account. If you've performed the steps above correctly and there are no assets displayed, contact Lobstr support with the details and the home domain of the asset.
