Started with Reddcoin?
Below is a Quick Guide on how to begin acquiring, sending, staking and using Reddcoin. Enjoy.
Welcome to Reddcoin:
Reddcoin brings the world together to turn your “likes” “hearts” and “retweets” into financial independence and freedom. Whether you are new to Reddcoin, cryptocurrency, or you’re already a part of our amazing “Reddhead” community, the Reddcoin team and Reddhead community are here to help you get started.
Together, we will get your questions answered and assist with continuing your journey into the new technology of Reddcoin, ReddID (the Internet’s new Love Button), our unique Proof-of-stake-velocity (PoSV, currently on track to evolve to PoSV v2), and other shared and unique cryptocurrency concepts!
On our site you will find many helpful sections for you to explore. We welcome you to engage yourself in this amazing and unique project and community! If you have skills you’d like to share with our all-volunteer team head to the volunteer section, all are welcome.
If you’re not technical, not a developer or prospective team member and just want to learn about Reddcoin? No problem, the blockchain has been running successfully as one of the first generation of altcoins, since 2014 and we welcome you to try things out. We’ve built our software to be easy to use, but your suggestions and feedback are always welcome.
If you are not familiar with basic crypto concepts like “wallet” or “keys”, please visit our Resource section for helpful information before installing software or transferring/purchasing RDD.
Perhaps you would like to support your favorite Celebrity, Streamer, Athletic Superstar, Singer, send your friends and family members a birthday surprise. Offer support to a charity, cause, or worthy individual. Reach out and share the love with anyone with a Reddcoin client. With Reddcoin the possibilities are endless, and it’s so easy to get started.
1. Obtain a Reddcoin Wallet
Wallets come in a few versions based on your computer’s operating system. Choose from one below.
2. Get Reddcoin (RDD) coins
Have crypto to exchange for RDD? Visit https://changeangel.io
Have fiat (USD/GBP/EUR/AUD) to buy RDD with? Visit www.vertbase.com
Other exchanges are available for trade/wire transfer/exchange to obtain RDD, listed at https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/reddcoin/#markets
3. Stake, tip, send or spend.
Want to earn rewards for staking, and secure the network with your coins?
Our PoSV blockchain provides ~5% “interest” on your holdings annually when held in our Core wallet and allowed to stake. Take a moment to read our Redd Paper and PoSV FAQ for more details, especially regarding the upcoming staking protocol upgrade/fork. Or see the Staking calculator for an estimate of possible earnings. Reddcoin is best when it’s used, as “Velocity” brings higher stake rewards.
Want to collect RDD for your own online content, goods or services?
Reddcoin can be sent address to address like any other crypto. But that’s not what makes Reddcoin so special.
Reddcoin has the only decentralized blockchain solution available to link personalized names directly with wallet addresses.
Register with the ReddID browser extension <linked here> for a customized easy-to-remember name linked to your wallet address, and then link that name to your social IDs. Anyone using the extension can tip you directly with a single button, no addresses needed, or give out your “ReddID name” on a business card or a phone call (or any other way) to have folks send securely without the complexity of copy/pasting a long alphanumeric code.
Get your ReddID securely registered on the RDD blockchain today. When you control the keys to your wallet and identity, no one can censor or seize your data and coins. NOTE: ReddID software is still in BETA status and under active development.
Want to join the ReddHead Community?
One of the best aspects of Reddcoin has been the evolution of a genuine, caring and open community of Reddheads. Come meet and text or voice chat with other people around the world using RDD, tipping, developing and building in the Reddcoin ecosystem on our Community page.
