Getting Started With NavCoin

1. Download the latest version of the wallet

This will allow you to send/receive transactions, take ownership of your private keys, and if you use the NavCoin core wallet you can contribute to transaction validation on the network.

Download Your Wallet

2. Install and set up your wallet

Once you have installed the wallet, you should back up your keys and follow the installation process. If you use the NavCoin core wallet, it will take a number of hours to sync and catch up with the blockchain.

3. Send NAV to your wallet

There are a couple of ways to get NAV:
1) Exchange Bitcoin for NAV on an exchange, such as Poloniex or Bittrex.
2) Use Changelly to buy NAV directly using your credit card.
Note: Various exchange fee’s will apply when purchasing Bitcoin or NavCoin

4. Enable staking in your wallet (core wallet only)

Once you have some NAV in your wallet, you can participate in transaction validation by having your wallet in staking mode. Remember to note that the time between finding a new block will depend on your network weight (read our FAQ for more information).
