Acquire Telos Tokens (TLOS)
Once you have created your new Telos account – you should check for its existence on the Telos blockchain explorer. Just type the new 12 digit account name into the search bar.
Next you will need to deposit a small amount of native Telos TLOS into your account. Depositing 1-2 TLOS tokens is enough to get you started. At the present time a single Telos token can be acquired for less than $US0.20. If you are familiar with cryptocurrencies, you can acquire Telos TLOS directly from an exchange, with KuCoin usually being the most active.
If you are inexperienced with cryptocurrency, you may need to acquire TLOS directly using your Visa or Mastercard. Telos offers this service on their website through Simplex.
Choose the correct token – Telos (TLOS).
Enter the number of tokens – at this time the minimum purchase amount is $US50 worth of TLOS. (There should be no need to purchase any more than the minimum to use Daily Telos).
Enter your new 12 digit account name (WARNING – your account name must be entered correctly or you risk losing your purchase).
Should any problems occur in the process of purchasing TLOS via the Telos.net site, you should contact a member of the Telos.net team via Telegram.
Each Daily Telos diary / journal entry will cost between 0.01 and 0.02 TLOS, depending upon the number of characters – so a $US50 purchase will probably last you many years.
If you would like run multiple Daily Telos accounts, there is no need to buy new TLOS for each. You should simply import your new accounts into an Anchor Wallet, and transfer TLOS tokens between your Daily Telos accounts. Then once your your new account active on Anchor, you can use it to create as many new Daily Telos accounts as you desire. Just go to the Tool section (Manage Keys and Create Account).
Should you get a warning about Low RAM or that there is not enough RAM in your account to make a Daily Telos post – you will definitely need to get your account onto an Anchor Wallet. Here you will be able to purchase the RAM resource for your account. Purchasing just 0.25 TLOS worth of RAM should be enough to last your account a long time.
Finally, it should be noted that the price of your TLOS tokens will go up and down relative to other currencies. Regardless, we have no intention of putting the price to post up – so at the very least you will always receive the same number of Daily Telos posts.
