Getting a Wallet

Before you can start to mine you need to create a wallet. Although Bitcoin Gold 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.

Exodus Wallet

Exodus Wallet

Exodus is the a desktop multi-asset wallet with built in ShapeShift support for converting between crypto-currencies. The application is comfortable to use available for Windows, macOS and Linux. One of the best features of this multi-currency wallet the client-side encryption of your private keys which means you stay in full control of your keys which never leave your machine in unencrypted form.

Hardware Wallets

Trezor

A hardware wallet is a special type of wallet which stores the user's private keys in a secure hardware device. Hardware wallets offer robust safety features for storing cryptographic assets and securing digital payments. Popular hardware wallets are the Ledger Nano S and the Trezor.

Official Wallets

Official first-party Wallets for all major platforms are available from the Bitcoin Gold Website. These wallets are released and maintained by the Bitcoin Gold Team.

Registering with an 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. Registering with an exchange is probably the most convenient way to obtain a wallet. Unfortunately it is also the least secure one. Exchanges have been hacked in the past!

Popular exchanges supporting Bitcoin Gold are: Bittrex, Poloniex, Kraken, Bitfinex and HitBTC.
