How to create Ergo (ERG) wallet


Ergo (ERG) is part of the larger Ergo ecosystem, which is a next-generation smart contract platform based on the Proof-of-Work principle.

This coin has gained popularity among miners because of the possibility of using dual-mining. This feature increases the profitability of mining on graphics cards. ERG is also resistant to ASIC devices.

You can exchange Ergo (ERG) on the, CoinEX and KuCoin exchanges.

We will discuss two methods for creating a Ergo coin wallet.

  • Ergo Wallet App.
  • On an exchange.

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 ERG 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 Ergo ( is used in the example);

  2. After signing up, select "Assets" → "Funds Managment" → “Deposit” → “Onchain”;

  3. Select "Coin → ERG", "NetworkERG-ERG", get "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.
