How to deposit, withdraw and send TLOS on the Telos EVM.
The tEVM uses native TLOS to pay for gas, which requires that you have TLOS on your EVM account to do transactions. To deposit TLOS to your EVM address, you need to transfer it from a Telos native account. TLOS can be purchased on the web-wallet or through one of the official portals listed on telos.net.
To top-up an EVM testnet account, enter the address on the Telos testnet faucet and press the "Send Testnet EVM TLOS" button. 100 TLOS will be sent to that address.
