How to use the Kaspa Wallet

Kaspa is a PoW (proof-of-work) based project on the GHOSTDAG protocol. It’s a general version of the Nakamoto consensus. Then, the project is open-sourced, community-based, and follows no central governance or business model. The idea was first implemented by Yonatan Sompolinsky and Aviv Zohar in 2016.

By using the GHOSTDAG protocol, the team aims to resolve the scaling constraints present in the Nakamoto or any PoW-based project. Kaspa will offer a tool to design layer 2 applications. Therefore, the project will provide a security guarantee like any PoW-based project with the advantage of faster block processing speed with adjustable block-time and reward. In this article, you will learn how to use the Kaspa Wallet.

Kaspa’s Wallet Features

Currently, the Kaspa testnet processes 1 block per second. However, the team is working to increase this level to 10 or even 100 blocks per second. Also, the KASPA project is still in the early phase. Users may experience some bugs or network connection issues. In addition, we will explain how you can get some free KAS tokens from the faucet and learn to use the wallet. We’ll start learning how to get the kaspa’s token.

1) How to Get KAS Tokens

Then, users can get KAS, the Kaspa’s token, from the below channels:

  • TXBIT Exchange- Get the KAS token from the Txbit exchange, paired with USDT.
  • Via Mining- You can set up a mining node to participate in the Kaspa ecosystem and earn KAS tokens as rewards.
  • Bounties- Get some bounty tokens from the community members by contributing to the Kaspa community.
2) Types of Kaspa wallet

In addition, at present, the wallet is available in 3 different forms:

  • Kaspa web wallet
  • Desktop wallet
  • Kaspa Command Line Wallet

Moreover, we will explain how you can access and use the web-based application of the Wallet.

Note: Always store your backup phrase safely. Moreover, the backup phrase is the key to setting up your account on any device. If you lost your backup phrase, your funds are lost.

5) How to Receive Funds to Your Kaspa Wallet
