Your new Argent wallet needs to be activated before it can be used for most Ethereum transactions. To activate it, you can do any of the following:
- Buy crypto: Open Argent, tap Add funds
- Receive crypto from another wallet/exchange: Open Argent, tap Add funds
Paying network fees for wallet activation
If you have downloaded Argent since February 2021 (and if you downloaded before this but never activated your wallet) you will need to pay for the network fees required to activate your wallet. This fee will come from your first deposit. You can read more about this here.
How long does it take to activate?
There will be a short wait for your wallet to activate as it requires a blockchain transaction to complete. It may be just a few minutes, but at times of high network congestion this may rise to an hour or so. We're sorry if that's the case but unfortunately there's nothing we can do.
Note on sending from another Argent wallet
- Address to send to: If sending crypto from another Argent wallet, you can use your Argent username (e.g. cameron.argent.xyz), in addition to the 0x version of your address.
- Tokens: The fee needs to be paid in one token only. You can pay in ETH, DAI, USDC, or USDT.
