To initiate the process of storing TFT in Solar, the first step is to fund your wallet with XLM (Stellar Lumens). By funding your wallet with XLM, you will have the necessary cryptocurrency to cover future transaction fees and engage in token transaction activities on Solar Wallet. Follow these steps:
On the Solar Wallet homepage, click on the 'Receive' button. This will provide you with a wallet address to receive XLM.
Copy the generated wallet address or use the provided QR code to receive XLM from your preferred source. You can use an external exchange, another wallet, or any platform that supports XLM transfers.
Send the desired amount of XLM to the generated wallet address. Ensure that you are sending XLM from a compatible source, and double-check the address to prevent any errors. Wait for the XLM transaction to be confirmed on the Stellar network. This typically takes a few moments, but it may vary depending on network congestion.
Once XLM is successfuly sent, it will appear on your Solar homepage.
To store TFT in our Solar 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.
