How do I lock my AQUA to receive ICE?

In order to get ICE token, you should have AQUA token on your Stellar wallet balance. 

You can get ICE token by locking (freezing) AQUA via the Aquarius locker tool.

You can get up to 10 ICE tokens for 1 AQUA token.

Follow this guide to lock your AQUA and receive ICE for increased cashback on your XLM purchases.

1. Open the Aquarius locker tool website and choose Sign in in the upper right corner.

2. Select the WalletConnect option in the Sign-in pop-up

3. Go to the WalletConnect tab on your phone, choose 'New Connection', and scan the QR code displayed on the website. Confirm the session request in the app. 

4. You will be logged in on the web and see your AQUA and ICE balances. Choose the AQUA amount and period for which you'd like to lock AQUA.

Note: The longer the lock period is, the more ICE tokens you get.

5. Once you choose the amount and the period, click 'FREEZE AQUA'. 

Note: Freezing AQUA requires you to add the 4 ICE trustlines. Each trustline will reserve 0.5 XLM of your wallet balance.

6. Click 'Confirm' to lock your AQUA token in return for ICE token. 


  • Once you lock your AQUA, it will become unavailable for you to send, trade, swap or otherwise transact on the Stellar network. You will get ICE tokens in return. 
  • You can use ICE to interact with Aquarius protocol and get rewards. 
  • After AQUA freeze, ICE tokens are usually sent to your wallet within 2 hours.
  • ICE token melts over time and its amount on the account decreases as you get closer to your unlock date.
