Getting started with Tezos
To get started with Tezos, you will need a wallet and some Tezos (XTZ). After that you can delegate your Tezos and receive a great compounding rate of return. Delegating is like depositing with a bank, except there is no risk that the government or any group – including us – can take your Tezos. It is risk free. Like a bank you will get paid interest on the Tezos you delegate. You will also the enjoy the likely great price appreciation of Tezos .
You can buy Tezos at exchanges like gate.io.
If you participated in the ICO and want to claim your Tezos or have purchased Tezos from an exchange, the next thing you need to do is get a wallet.
There are two Tezos Wallets that have been verified by the Tezos foundation as being safe to use:
- Galleon is a desktop application which is available from here.
- Tezbox is a web and mobile wallet which is available from here.
