Quick summary

Before you can start exploring everything StarkNet has to offer, you need to fund your Argent X wallet. Luckily, there are many ways you can do this so you can find something that suits your needs.

There are 4 different ways to fund your Argent X wallet:

  1. Buying crypto with card or bank transfer using Ramp or Banxa 
  2. Bridging crypto from another network to StarkNet using Orbiter Finance or StarkGate 
  3. Sending crypto from an exchange like Coinbase or Binance using LayerSwap 
  4. Funding your Argent X account from another StarkNet wallet

Now let’s dive into these methods in more detail

1. Buying crypto with card or bank transfer in Argent X

Argent X has partnered with two leading crypto on-ramp providers - Ramp and Banxa - to provide a quick and easy way to purchase crypto with your local currency. 

Just follow these steps:

  1. Open Argent X, tap “Add Funds”, then choose “Buy with card or bank transfer” 
  2. Choose either Ramp or Banxa (Argent X will recommend the best option for you)
  3. Enter the amount you want to purchase, then complete the payment flow for Ramp or Banxa 
  4. Once you’ve paid, your crypto should arrive almost instantly

Depending on the amount you want to purchase, you may be asked to complete KYC (Know Your Customer). Argent X doesn’t store your details, as this is handled by either Ramp or Banxa. 

2. Bridging crypto to your Argent X account with another Ethereum wallet, like Metamask (on Layer 1)

Most wallets don’t support StarkNet yet, luckily, there is an easy way to deposit crypto into your Argent X wallet from another Ethereum wallet you own using Orbiter Finance or StarkGate. 

Orbiter Finance and StarkGate are bridges, which means you can transfer crypto from one network to another quickly, securely and easily.  

Just follow these steps:

  1. Open Argent X, tap “Add Funds”, then choose “Bridge from Ethereum and other chains
  2. Choose “Orbiter Finance” or “StarkGate” 
  3. Connect your Ethereum wallet, like Metamask, and your Argent X account (You need to connect both so you can send funds from your Ethereum wallet to StarkNet)
  4. Enter the amount you want to send to StarkNet and confirm the transaction  a. Your transaction fee will vary based on the network you're bridging funds from. For example, Ethereum is more expensive than zkSync
  5. Your funds will arrive in your Argent X account

3. Sending crypto from an exchange, like Coinbase or Binance, to Argent X using LayerSwap  

You can’t yet send assets to StarkNet directly from a big exchange (e.g. Coinbase, Binance).

Luckily there’s a solution! 

Argent X has partnered with LayerSwap so that you can send ETH to StarkNet.

Just follow these steps:

  1. Open Argent X, tap “Add Funds”, then choose “From an Exchange
  2. Choose the Exchange you want to send ETH from and the amount 
  3. Complete the transaction flow (varies based on the exchange selected)
  4. Once you’ve confirmed your transaction, your funds should have arrived for a small fee

4. Funding your Argent X account with another StarkNet wallet

If you have funds in another Argent X account or StarkNet wallet, you can easily transfer them to your desired address. 

Just follow these steps:

  1. Open Argent X, tap “Add Funds”, then choose “From another StarkNet account
  2. You will then see your StarkNet address and QR code  a. Send from (It has to be a StarkNet wallet or you’ll lose money) b. Scan the address from the StarkNet wallet you want to send from (It has to be a StarkNet wallet or you’ll lose money)
  3. Confirm the transaction, and once it goes through - your funds will arrive
