Setting up a wallet[edit | edit source]

You can either use a lite wallet such as http://multidoge.org which works similarly to the standard wallet available at dogecoin.com except it does not have to sync, making it more hassle-free. However, some people prefer the interface of the original dogecoin client.
Another option is to use a online wallet such as Dogechain.info. Online wallets are generally less secure, but have many more benefits including, they are easier to use and setup, can be accessed from any computer reduces risk of wallet loss and always up to sync. Now to you can buy and store your dogecoin in wallet.
