Is there some type of EOS minimum to have in an account when creating a new eos account? Say I wanted to create one just to receive a bunch of different tokens. Do these tokens take up ram space? And if I wanted to send these tokens back out, how much eos do I really need in my account as there are no fees, but required to just hold eos.

1 Answer 1


at least 5~6 kbyte of ram, with a little bit of CPU,NET

for just holding an EOS, 0.1EOS with CPU and 0.01EOS with NET is sufficient.

currentlyl, 6kbyte RAM costs about 0.6 EOS

hence, 0.7 EOS($ 3.85) would be suitable

  • Do you have to stake the .1EOS for cpu or net when your holding the .1? So what your saying you MUST have some eos in your account in order to use the network? what happens if you have ZERO eos? Oct 18, 2018 at 14:36
  • for creating account, resource is essential. If some one withdraw all resources in his account after create it, account will be halt. Nothing of actions(transfer, delegate.. ) won't be work
