To activate your Pigzbe wallet you will first need to fund it by sending at least 1.6 Stellar Lumens (XLM) to your Pigzbe public address.

This rule is forced by the Stellar network (not Pigzbe) and you can read more about it here. Certain exchanges and wallets will not send transactions to inactive accounts (with zero XLM balance), which can be confusing for new users.

So to help you get started here are two examples you can follow to successfully activate your Pigzbe wallet:

1/ Fund your Pigzbe wallet from the StellarX decentralised exchange.
If you do not have XLM you will first need to purchase it on an Exchange like StellarX and then send this to your Pigzbe public address to activate your wallet.

2/ Fund your Pigzbe wallet from Lobstr, a Stellar wallet.
If you already have some Stellar Lumens you can simply send XLM from Lobstr, a Stellar wallet, to your Pigzbe public address to activate your wallet.

Follow our step-by-step guide below:

Fund your Pigzbe wallet from the StellarX decentralised exchange.

  1. Go to https://www.stellarx.com and press the “SIGNUP” button and complete the registration form.

2. Verify your email address to complete the registration process.

3. Select “I’ll use a new Stellar secret key” and press the “CONTINUE” button.

4. Press the “CONTINUE” button.

5. Save your backup phrase offline and press the “OK I SAVED IT” button. If you intend to use your StellarX account please follow the instructions and take good care of your backup phrase as it is the only way you can recover your account.

6. Go through the StellarX tutorial or press the “NAH, I’M GOOD” button to skip.

7. On the Markets dashboard screen, press the “DEPOSIT” button in the top right of the screen.

8. You can now purchase XLM by depositing a FIAT or another cryptocurrency. Choose which type of currency you wish to deposit. In this example we will select “OTHER CRYPTO” and deposit using ETH.

9. Select the specific cryptocurrency you wish to use from the dropdown menu, enter the amount you wish to deposit and press the “CONTINUE” button. Note we recommend sending at least 1.6 XLM to activate your Pigzbe wallet (+ 1.6 XLM for each child you wish to add).

10. Check the details in the confirmation screen before proceeding.

11. Make the payment to the address given.

12. Check the confirmation details and close the payment window.

13. From the dashboard go to the “Wallet” page in the main menu. You will see your new XLM balance there. Press the “SEND TOKENS” button to send your XLM to your Pigzbe wallet.

14. Now open the Pigzbe App, login and go to the “Transfer” section of the App. Press the button in the top-right corner of the screen to display your Pigzbe wallet public address. Copy or share the address and return to the StellarX website.

15. Enter your Pigzbe address into the recipient field in StellarX. Optionally, tick “Include memo” to add a message to the transaction.

16. Select XLM and enter the amount you want to send.

17. Check the details and press the “CONFIRM” button to send the XLM to your Pigzbe wallet.

18. After a few seconds you should see a notification that the transaction is complete.

19. Congratulations you’re almost done! Now login to the Pigzbe App to activate the wallet and ensure its ready to receive Wollo (WLO). Please note: The App MUST be launched to activate the wallet and trust Wollo. Only after this can you send Wollo tokens this wallet.

Fund your Pigzbe wallet from Lobstr, a Stellar wallet.

If you already have some Stellar Lumens (XLM) you can simply send XLM from Lobstr, a Stellar wallet, to your Pigzbe public address to activate your wallet. You can install Lobstr on iOS, Android or Desktop. The following guide shows the process on Desktop.

  1. Go to https://lobstr.co

2. Press “GET STARTED”, fill in the “Create LOBSTR account” form and press “Create Account”

3. Confirm your email address and sign in.

4. If you already have XLM in your Lobstr wallet you skip this and go to step 7. If you need to add XLM to your Lobstr wallet from the Lobstr dashboard select the “Receive” option in the left-hand navigation menu.

5. Copy “Your public Stellar address” and use this address to send XLM from a crypto exchange such as Bitfinex or StellarX or another Stellar wallet.

6. Go back to “Home” in the left-hand navigation menu and check that your XLM balance has been updated.

7. Now open the Pigzbe App, login and go to the “Transfer” section of the App. Press the press the QR Code icon button in the top-right corner of the screen to display your Pigzbe wallet public address. Copy or share the address and return to the StellarX website.

If you are activating a wallet for someone else, ask them to share the address with you (it is safe to share the Pigzbe wallet public address).

8. Now you need to send your XLM to the Pigzbe wallet in order to activate it. Go back to Lobstr and press “Send” in the left-hand navigation. Enter the Pigzbe wallet address, sending at least 1.6 XLM and a friendly message, and press the “Send” button. Note we recommend sending at least 1.6 XLM to activate your Pigzbe wallet (+ 1.6 XLM for each child you wish to add)

10. Review the details you have entered and, if correct, press the “Send” button.

11. After a few seconds you will see a confirmation that the account was created along with the amount of XLM sent.

12. Congratulations you’re almost done! Now login to the Pigzbe App to activate the wallet and ensure its ready to receive Wollo (WLO). Please note: The App MUST be launched to activate the wallet and trust Wollo. Only after this can you send Wollo tokens this wallet.
