CHOOSE AN ONLINE WALLET:

Online wallets are the quickest and easiest way to use Dogecoin, but lack the security of storing your wallet on your local computer.

We recommend you only store a small amount of Dogecoin in an online wallet at any time.
There are several browser-based wallets available to choose from:
Note: These online wallets are not owned or maintained by Dogecoin. While we think the entities behind them are trustworthy - please use at your own risk.

Dogecoin is a fun, new and rapidly growing form of digital currency.
This form of digital currency is called "cryptocurrency"; a type of digital currency.
Cryptocurrency is completely anonymous, decentralized, and extremely secure.

Dogecoin is used with a wallet on your computer, your smartphone, or a website.
You can use it to buy goods and services, or trade it for other currencies (both other cryptocurrencies or traditional currency like US dollars).

One of the most popular uses for Dogecoin is "tipping" fellow internet-goers who create or share great content. Think of it as a more meaningful "like" or upvote, with real value that can be used all across the internet.

It is very easy to start using Dogecoin.

GET DOGECOIN:

There are numerous amounts of ways to get Dogecoin. You can buy them, trade for them, get tipped, "mine" them, and more. They are surprisingly endless!

You can get tipped Dogecoin by participating in our community. If that's not your style, the easiest way to have your first Dogecoin is to get them from a faucet.

A Faucet is a website which gives you a small amount of Dogecoin for free to introduce you to the currency! All you need is your Dogecoin address.

Here are a couple Dogecoin faucets:
You can also get Dogecoin by "mining" it. Mining is when you use your computer to process Dogecoin transactions by other people, and in return you get Dogecoin.

Mining is intended for advanced users only, as it requires a lot of technical knowledge to do. If you are interested, read more here.

What are the differences between the two?

You have to sync with the blockchain to use Dogecoin.
This means, you need the Dogecoin "ledger" to use Dogecoin.

MultiDoge is a "light" wallet. It syncs with the blockchain by "skimming" through the blockchain, providing fast sync times.

Dogecoin Core, on the other hand, is a "full" wallet. It syncs by downloading it, providing a solid-working Dogecoin wallet.


Advantages and Disadvantages?

Both wallets have their advantages and disadvantages.

MultiDoge is a light wallet, so it only needs to "skim" through the blockchain before it becomes usable. This is done quickly.

But the wallet should only be for normal use. It cannot be used to mine Dogecoin, as the wallet will become slow and unresponsive if used this way.

Dogecoin Core on the other hand, downloads the entire blockchain. Its initial sync is significantly slower compared to MultiDoge, and it takes up a lot more space.

But this comes at an advantage. It is safe to mine Dogecoin with this wallet, as it will be able to handle the transactions from payouts. It will also help maintain the Dogecoin network.
