After you created your wallet, you need to activate it. A wallet activation is a one-time-only procedure.  If you have a positive wallet balance Surf will automatically activate the wallet for you.

If your balance is zero, you can activate the wallet for free with the help of Activation DeBot. It sends 0.07 Evers (formerly TON Crystals) to your wallet and Surf will use them for the wallet activation.

To activate a wallet via Activation DeBot:

  1. Launch Activation DeBot:

        At launch, the DeBot will check whether your wallet has been activated and report it.

  1. Read the terms of use in the DeBot dialog and confirm launching.

  2. Click Get welcome TON’s

  3. Click Confirm to receive Evers for activation.

  4. Confirm your action with a PIN code, by scanning your fingerprint or using facial recognition.

Your wallet has been activated. After that, DeBot will offer you to back up your seed phrase.

DeBot takes Evers from the reward that Surf receives for staking its funds. This is possible because Surf transferred its Evers to staking. Activation DeBot takes from this reward the amount required to activate a new wallet.
