Get Free CPU during Emergencies
Unable to stake more CPU because you ran out of CPU? Here are some sites where you can get free CPU staked to your EOS account.
As CPU in EOS is like a “stamina bar” in mobile games, as you play more it will eventually run out. When it runs out, you cannot even do any transaction including staking more CPU!
Here’s where the free CPU websites come in and help you get out of the no-CPU loop: they lend you a small amount of CPU temporarily, which is enough for you to stake more into CPU and save yourself from being stuck.
Option 1: Bloks.io (Recommended)
What you get: 5 free transactions daily on Bloks.io
Bloks.io provides users with 5 free transactions daily when using their website. This means you can use their CPU and stake more CPU into your account. Simply use the free transaction(s) to increase CPU stake and you're ready to go.
How to activate: By default the option is turned off. Simply:
- Click on your logged in account on the top-right corner
- Turn this option on and you're done!
Option 2: Bank of Staked
Cost: Free (EOS will be refunded for Free Plan)
What you get: 0.8 EOS of CPU + 0.2 EOS of NET (for 8 hours)
An alternative website where you can get temporary CPU from run by EOS LaoMao, a Block Producer. Bank of Staked also provides CPU rental services if you need.
Note: You need to be able to make one transaction in order to use this service. You will also need to set up Scatter as transactions are involved. So if you are already out of CPU you will not be able to use this.
