Assuming the new account won't be performing any actions, what is the bare minimum of EOS required to create the new account?

  • How much RAM?
  • How much CPU/NET needs to be staked/delegated?

1 Answer 1


For v1.5.1 an account that won't perform any action (including transfer) you don't need to delegate CPU/NET. Bare minimum amount for new account is 3 kbytes with the current reward for newaccount which is 1.5 kb (article from Dan). Which require the creator to buy 1608 bytes.

--stake-net="0.0000 EOS" --stake-cpu="0.0000 EOS" --buy-ram-bytes=1608


RAM used 2996 bytes / quota: 1596 bytes

In this state, the account can receive EOS, but cannot transfer it back. You can always delegate sufficient amount of bandwidth to make the account functioning.
