When you download Argent you choose a free username (e.g. cameron.argent.xyz). This username needs to be activated before it can be used for most Ethereum transactions. To activate it, you can receive $100 or more of crypto from another wallet/exchange.
To receive crypto from another wallet/exchange:
- Open Argent
- 'Add funds'
- Long press on the traditional Ethereum address below your username (it will start '0x...')
- Copy this long address and use it with the other wallet/exchange.
The 0x address is just another version of your username.
Don’t worry if your username doesn’t activate immediately after this, sometimes it can take a little bit for the blockchain to process.
Note on sending from another Argent wallet
If sending crypto from another Argent wallet, you can immediately use the username (e.g. cameron.argent.xyz)
