Getting a Wallet
Before you can start to mine you need to create a wallet. Although Vertcoin is an entirely digital asset, you still need a place to store them. This is done in a digital wallet. There are multiple methods to obtain a wallet which vary by ease of use and the security they provide.
Official first-party Wallets for all major platforms are available from the Vertcoin Website. These wallets are released and maintained by the Vertcoin Team.
A hardware wallet is a special type of wallet which stores your private keys in a secure hardware device. Hardware wallets offer robust safety features for storing cryptographic assets and securing digital payments. The most popular hardware wallets are the Ledger Nano S and the Trezor.
Registering with a Crypto-Exchange
There are multiple digital currency exchanges you can register with. Registering with an exchange allows you to create a wallet on the exchange for every currency the exchange supports.
