To store data on-chain, an certain amount of SOL must be transferred to an account. The minimum required amount transferred is proportional to the size of data stored on the account.

This concept is commonly referred to as “rent”. However, you can think of "rent" more like a "deposit" because the SOL allocated to an account can be fully recovered when the account is closed.

All newly created accounts are required to be "rent-exempt", so it's no longer possible to create accounts where lamports are deducted from the account.
