To prevent spam, the Mina network charges a one-time account creation fee of 1 MINA. This fee is automatically deducted from the first transaction received.

Sending MINA

When sending MINA, always double check that you have the correct Mina address for the recipient. Remember that transactions on the Mina blockchain are final and irreversible.
