EOS accounts require at least a small amount of EOS in order to become activated. Edge offers a service in the app to stake EOS on users behalf. The cost is low, typically around 0.5 EOS, and users can pay for it with Bitcoin or Litecoin. 

Edge aims to stake enough EOS for users so that they have enough CPU and NET to send 10+ transactions per day and plenty of RAM. The cost we present the user is calculated as a total of the following:

RAM - enough EOS to purchase 8kb of RAM

CPU - enough EOS to purchase 10ms of CPU or 0.1 EOS worth, whichever is less

NET - enough EOS to purchase 80kb of NET or 0.1 EOS worth, whichever is less

The total is then calculated in terms of BTC or LTC for the user to pay with.
