How to create IRON FISH wallet
The IRON FISH coin has recently appeared, but has already established itself as an excellent option for dual and triple mining. Thanks to the energy-efficient Blake3 algorithm, it allows for mining without consuming a lot of electricity.
We will discuss three methods to create a IRON FISH coin wallet:
- Crypto wallet at your PC —

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

How to Register a IRON FISH 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).
ATTENTION: This mining method can be dangerous if the exchange changes the wallet address or memo and you’re still mining. Funds can be irrecoverable. We also will not be able to change the address before payment. Use this method at your own risk. We recommend mining to your wallet: not your keys — not your crypto!
Register with any exchange that provides the option to trade Iron Fish (Gate.io is used in the example);
After signing up, select "Wallet" → "Deposit" → "Onchain";
Select "Coin → IRON", "Network → IRON-IRON", get "Deposit Address" and “TAG” (Memo);
Done! You have got your wallet address and memo (tag) for deposits to the exchange.
When depositing an exchange wallet,
memo (tag)must always be specified, otherwise the deposit will not be received.
