How to create a free account

TELOS Accounts require resources to create and thus it typically requires some sort of investment. I tried creating an account and it costs around $3 USD. While this is not that much this is a major barrier since most cryptocurrencies do not require its users to pay for new accounts or wallets. Fortunately, TELOS foundation is now giving out 2 million accounts via one of this wallet partner sqrlwallet.

To start creating your wallet you need to download desktop wallet sqrlwallet. The desktop wallet not only allows you to create a Free TELOS account it also gives you free 5 SQRL Tokens. You can earn more by referring other people.
