How to receive Dogecoin.
Receiving Dogecoin is easy, when you know how.
So, you're keen to get started with Dogecoin, but you don't quite know where to start. It's quite a simple process, but we're here to guide you through it and soon you'll be receiving Dogecoin as fast as you can work out how to say it.
Get a wallet.
You can't store Dogecoin without owning a wallet. You can get this for your Windows or Mac computer from the official Dogecoin Wallet site. You should check back periodically to ensure you have the latest version. If you have a Google Android mobile phone or tablet, you can get a wallet from the Google Play marketplace.
Encrypt and backup your wallet.
Once you have your wallet, you should probably encrypt it and back up the wallet file on a regular basis. More detailed instructions on how to do this will come soon, but in the meantime, look in the 'Settings' menu of each app. You will encrypt your wallet with a password that you'll need to remember for future transactions.
Now you have a wallet and it's all secured with encryption, click on the 'Receive' tab or button in the wallet application. Here you'll see one default address. This is the address you can give to people so that they're able to send you money. You are able to create new addresses, which helps for identifying specific transactions, and addresses can be copied and pasted anywhere.
