Step 2: Enter the account password or wallet private key to log in

Because there are two modes,[Account Mode] and [Wallet Mode], in registeration, and we introduced [Account Mode] above to support account password and private key login, [Wallet Mode] only supports private key login. So there are still two options when logging in.

Select [Account Mode Login] to directly fill in the account name and password. In this case, only accounts created under [Account Mode] are supported.

2.4 Resources

Cocos-BCX adopts the GAS resource model in designing the fee model, introduced a specialized asset GAS for execution-driven metering of multiple transactions within the system. GAS assets cannot be traded or transferred.

GAS is obtained by freezing the balance of COCOS assets. The frozen portion of COCOS cannot be transferred or traded in any form until it is unfreezed. GAS assets are recovered linearly in time after use, and recovered to 100% of the frozen amount after 24 hours. The account needs to perform a collection operation to obtain the recovered GAS.

When mortgage, users can choose to give GAS to themselves or others.
