FRED Energy does not currently provide custodial wallets, however due to the popularity of our blockchains there are several options for each asset, FRED (Stellar), FREDX (Ethereum) and bFREDX (BSC) available.
FRED Swap (expected Q2 2022, Update, yup we made it!) will enable swaps between assets and chains. The total available circulating supply accross all chains is 808 Million tokens.
FRED Stellar Wallets
There are many tried and tested Stellar based wallets available with some if not most offering trading on the Stellar DEX through the wallet.
A few things to understand with Stellar wallets is that although transactions a very cheap and very fast, a base reserve of 0.5XLM is required and an additional 0.5XLM per entry (Lobstr provide an initial 1.5 XLM reserve to enable instant use) .
These reserves are made available again once an entry is cancelled.
A new wallet must also be activated by crediting (sending) XLM to it. We suggest a minimum of 2.5XLM to start with, this will enable the adding of FRED trustline and submitting a few entries.
“In order to trade, receive, or hold any asset on the Stellar network you must first establish a trustline with the anchor’s issuing account. An issuing account is an anchor’s Stellar account that created the asset. Trustlines are set using the Change Trust operation and cost a base reserve fee of 0.5 lumens each. What this means is that for each trustline you set, your account will be required to maintain 0.5 lumens in reserve that can’t be spent until you close your trustlines” from Stellar Community
Most Stellar based wallets use the same principles when adding trustlines and will either request the anchor domain (fredenergy.org or the asset code and issuer.
Asset Code: FRED
Asset Code: SOLS
