How to Get an EOS Account

How to get an EOS account

There are various ways to create an EOS account, such as using cleos or using one of the available toolkits. For this guide we will use this toolkit. To create a new EOS account you need to use an existing EOS account. If you do not have an existing account you can use a tool which creates an account for you, for example the EOS account generator by EOSVibes, or Zeos *Use these tools at your own risk and always research if a tool can be trusted.*

First of all you have to download Scatter, a browser extension. You can get Scatter hereFollow the instructions on how to set up your Scatter account and login to your Scatter extension. After that go to the toolkit and connect your existing EOS account.

After you have connected your account you can go to ‘Create Account’ and fill in the blank spaces. You can use existing keypairs as the owner public key and active public key, or you can generate new keypairs in Scatters under the ‘Keypairs’ tab.

We recommend not changing the ‘net stake’, ‘CPU stake’ and ‘RAM purchase’, unless you plan on making a lot of transactions, or plan on actively using your EOS. If this is the case, stake more for CPU and net with a 10:1 ratio (as you will run out of CPU much faster than you will run out of net). To give you an idea of how much you should stake, staking 1 EOS for CPU is enough to make multiple transactions per hour.

The cost of creating an account (using the above settings) can be calculated in the following way: (Current RAM price/Kb)*3+0.1+0.1=The minimum amount of EOS required to create a new account.
