How to create Alephium (ALPH) wallet


Alephium is a new cryptocurrency utilizing the Blake3 algorithm.
The coin's developers aim to establish a swift and efficient blockchain.

The price of the coin is growing steadily, which has been attracting miners for a long time.

Alephium (ALPH) can be exchanged on MEXC, CoinEx,

We will discuss two methods for creating an Alephium coin wallet.

  • Stock exchange.
  • Extension Wallet.

We do not recommend mining to exchange. If you choose mining to an exchange, you do so at your own risk. Not your keys — not your crypto!

How to Register a ALPH Wallet on the Exchange

This method is convenient because you don’t need to register multiple wallets. Everything is stored on one exchange, and all coins and wallets are easily accessible. You can immediately exchange or trade your cryptocurrency without any hassle.

Some cons: The security of all your exchange wallets depends on the security of your exchange account. To ensure the utmost security, make sure to secure your email, exchange account, and enable two-factor authentication (2FA).

Keep in mind that sometimes exchanges change the address for depositing cryptocurrencies. The pool will not be able to change the address to which you are mining, so some of the cryptocurrency may be lost.

  1. Register at any exchange that provides the option to trade Alephium (MEXC is used in the example);

  2. After signing up, select "Wallets" → "Deposit";

  3. Select "Select Crypto → ALPH", "NetworkALPH", get "Deposit Address";

  4. Done! You have got the wallet address for deposits to the exchange. Start by clicking on the icon next to the wallet address to copy it. You can then use it to mine or receive coins to your wallet.

    The one who owns the seed phrase of 12 words — owns the wallet!

  10. The wallet is now ready to use! Click on the wallet address to copy it. You can then use it to mine or receive coins in your wallet.
