  1. Download the wallet below
  2. Extract the ZIP file
  3. Double-click the "Dogecoin-qt.exe" program
  4. Wait for the Dogecoin program to synchronize with the rest of the Dogecoin community. (This is time consuming. It takes a long time, especially the first time.)

Addresses are CaSe SeNsiTiVe. Copy them. Do not type them.

One of the best ways to get dogecoins is to buy them from reputable sources, like WeSellDoges.

Faucets (or "water bowls") are sites that give out free doges. Visit some of the sites below and paste in your Dogecoin address.



Faucet list:

Sometimes the water bowls run dry and there are no dogecoins left in them. Just try another.

To receive Dogecoin from someone else, simply send them a Dogecoin address. You can make as many addresses as you like.

Dogecoin is the #1 social media crypto currency. You can receive Dogecoins on Reddit, Twitter, 4chan, and more are coming!

 
 
 
 
 

Paper Wallet Importing

So how do you import a paper wallet to your Dogecoin client?

To be able to import a wallet to your Dogecoin client is an important feature. When you import a wallet you access the dogecoins that are on that wallet. Maybe someone has given you a paperwallet. To get the Dogecoins on that wallet you need to import them!

  1. Look for the private key on the paperwallet. This is usually hidden in someway.
  2. Open the Dogecoin client.
  3. Go to Help -> Debug -> Console.
  4. In the console you type the command: importprivkey "YOUR PRIVATE KEY" "NAME OF THIS WALLET" (with the quotation marks) [IF THIS DOESNT WORK! Try to update your Dogecoin client!]
  5. [optional step] A good step at this point is to transfer the dogecoins to a different wallet. This is because the person who handed you the wallet might still have the private key and can there for still access the doges.

Very Paperwallet Creating

So how do you make your own paperwallet?

Making a paperwallet is very good if you want to spread the word or pay with dogecoins. A paperwallet is built up with two different keys, a private and a public key. The private key is the one you use to get the dogecoins, and it is usually hidden within the wallet.

  1. The first step to print out a paperwallet is to go to DogecoinPaperwallet.net.
  2. On that site you can generate your wallet. (For extra security you should download the generator and run it offline!)
  3. There are two sides you need to print out. A front and a back. The front contains the two keys.
  4. To print the front you first click on the button that says "Random-generate new keys". This gives you two completely unique keys. After this you have to press the green butto that says "Print Wallet Front". This opens a printerwindow. Click print and your front should start being printed.
  5. After you have printed the front you need to print the back. Use the same sheet of paper to print the back to get the wallet to line up. Press the green button and print the back!
  6. What you should now have in your hand is a piece of paper with a wallet printed on it. Next step is to Cut, Fold, Seal and Fund the wallet.
  7. Cut out the wallet along the dotted line on the front!
  8. Now it is time to fold the wallet. Fold the wallet along the two dotted lines displayed on the picture below.
  9. The result should look something like this:

  10. Seal the wallet by putting two pieces of sturdy light-blocking tape on the top and buttom of the folded private key.
  11. Next step is to fund the wallet! You do this by sending dogecoins to the public key using either the address or the QR-code.
  12. Last and probably the most important step of making a paperwallet is to use it! Give it as a tip in a restaurant, give it to a friend or maybe give it out to strangers you meet? USE IT TO SPREAD THE WORD OF DOGECOINS!
 

So see!

So what does this wallet look like?

Such a smart shibe you are! If in doubt, ASK! We shibes gotta help each other! A good way to get help is to ask at the dogecoin subreddit or on Dogec0in

After you download the Dogecoin wallet and unzip it, you'll see something similar to this:

Now, your Windows Explorer might look a bit different, but just look for that "Dogecoin-qt". That's what you want! Double-click that to run your Dogecoin program and create your Dogecoin wallet. The splash screen will come up for a few moments.

When the program loads, you'll see your empty wallet:

Dogecoin not connected yet

It will take a little while for you Dogecoin wallet to sync with the network. Don't fret. It will happen. This is what it looks like:

Dogecoin not connected yet

You'll see the green bar progress as your Dogecoin program syncs with the network. It can take some time depending on your Internet connection speed.

Sync'd but small wait

Once you're sync'd, you might see an "Out of sync" message for a bit. Relax. Doge will be good.

very ready

You can use your first address before this point, but you might feel more comfortable once you reach this point. At this point, you have completely sync'd with the network and you are 100% good as gold to go.

That's it! You're good! You've got your wallet 110% up and running!

Congratulations! You're a shibe-supreme!
