Understand your wallet:
i) Your wallet address appear in the center
ii) Your transactions are literally free if you have enough Bandwidth & energy. Else, it will automatically burn some TRX as transaction fee. Normal wallet to wallet transfer will consume a little energy while smart contract consume more energy. You may freeze some TRX for Energy to save on transaction fee (below will show how to freeze). Both Bandwidth & energy will replenish little by little over time.
To avoid transaction error, always maintain 30~50 TRX in your wallet for transaction cost.
Transaction cost if your wallet has no bandwidth & energy:
-wallet to wallet transfer : about 1 TRX
-Smart contract interaction : around 3 to 8 TRX
iii) You can see some other coin eg. BTC, ETH, USDT
These are TRC20 token run under Tron Blockchain, a synthetic version with the same value but we can’t direct deposit BTC to TRC20 BTC as it run under different blockchain. We need to convert BTC to Tron, then Tron to TRC20 BTC.

Upper right corner, click on “Freeze/Unfreeze. Wallet will link to Tronscan
A small windows will pop up after click “obtain”
Each freeze will lock TRX for 3 days, after 3 days we can unfreeze anytime and get back our TRX.
