How to Stake ICON (ICX) in Atomic Mobile Wallet: A Detailed Guide

The Icon Foundation has set itself the goal of combining cryptocurrencies with traditional finance, offering fast and secure payments for insurance companies, healthcare providers, financial institutions, and many other organizations. Users, in turn, can become part of this movement by supporting validators and delegating their tokens to them, and receiving income.

Atomic Wallet developers have presented a convenient mobile multi-currency platform for storing, transferring, and staking cryptocurrencies. Also, users can buy and sell cryptocurrencies right in the wallet. Atomic Wallet is also available for desktop and web. If you prefer to use the Atomic Wallet to stake ICX tokens, then read our other guide.

Write down and save the seed-phrase

You can copy the seed phrase or scan the QR code to save it. This is convenient but not secure. It is best to record and store your mnemonic password on non-digital devices: paper, seed storage device, or other suitable media. After you wrote down the seed phrase, click “Start using Atomic”.

There are three ways to get in touch with the sender or the exchange in order to receive tokens:

  • By sending a QR code;
  • By copying the ICX address;
