When you interact with a new Tron account in Ledger Live, one of the following messages may appear:
- You need to activate your Tron account before depositing TRC20 tokens
- You first need to send at least 0.1 TRX to this address to enable TRC20 deposit
These messages appear due to the rules of the Tron protocol that requires you to activate your Tron account before receiving any TRC20 tokens. To activate your Tron account, you must send at least 0.1 TRX.
Below are the steps to follow if one of these messages is displayed in your Ledger Live app 👇
You need to activate your Tron account before depositing TRC20 tokens
Before you can receive TRC20 tokens, you must send at least 0.1 TRX to your new Tron account. When you fund your new account, it will get activated on the chain and you will be able to receive TRC20 tokens.
You first need to send at least 0.1 TRX to this address to enable TRC20 token deposit
When sending TRC20 tokens to a Tron address, make sure that the recipient address is activated.
Sometimes, exchanges or third-party wallets will provide you with a Tron deposit address that hasn’t been activated. In that case, send 0.1 TRX to the address to activate it. Then you can send your TRC20 tokens.
We understand that this might be an inconvenience. However, this is the Tron protocol requirement that can’t be bypassed.
