How to create Karlsen (KLS) wallet

08/12/2023

Karlsen (KLS) coin is a fork of the popular KASPA coin. Coin appeared on the crypto market recently, but has already gained popularity among GPU miners. The coin has resistance to ASIC devices and high profitability in the moment. The future of the project is currently ambiguous.

Karlsen (KLS) can be exchanged on XeggeX.

We will discuss three methods for creating a Karlsen coin wallet.

  • Stock exchange.
  • Online wallet.
  • Crypto wallet at your PC — node wallet.

Notes:

  • The Karlsen (KLS) coin has one abnormality — your wallet address may change over time. In such a way, the coin increases the protection and anonymity of wallets — do not worry about it. Even if your wallet address has changed, you can continue mining or receive payments to your first address, which you received immediately after registration. The coins will also go to your wallet, and you will see them in wallet transactions.
  • Can I change it? Unfortunately, or fortunately — no. We need to accept this feature and the fact that the addresses in the wallet will change.
  • We recommend keeping the primary wallet address safe to avoid confusion. Use the first address for mining and use the refreshed address for daily transactions. Do not change the address in the miner, as the accrual on the pool will start again!

How to Register a KLS 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 Karlsen (XeggeX is used in the example);

  2. After signing up, select "Your Wallet";

  3. Enter "KLS" in the search bar, find the coin "KLS" and click "Deposit";

  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.

How to Register an Online Karlsen (KLS) Wallet

This method is convenient for those who prefer not to keep all their money in one place or immediately exchange cryptocurrency. An online wallet, protected by a password and a seed phrase, will store your coins until you transfer them to another address.

Some cons: The security of your wallet relies on the security of your computer and the safety of the seed phrase. To ensure maximum security, protect your computer, create a strong login password for your wallet, and securely store your seed phrase.

  3. The wallet asks you to enter a password for your wallet and confirm it. Generate reliable password with your browser or use the password generator. Enter the password, confirm it, and click “Next”.

  4. You will receive a secret phrase — a combination of 12 words. Safely keep them in the same order as they appear on your screen. Losing them means losing access to your wallet! Then click “Next”.

  5. The wallet will check how well you remember your seed phrase and word order. The dialog window will ask you to choose the correct word in the given order three times. If you forgot or didn’t write it down, the wallet will offer to return to word order and repeat the verification procedure.

  6. After successful verification, the wallet will remind you of the security rules. The one who owns the seed phrase of 12 words — owns the wallet! Acknowledge it, and move on to the wallet. Click the "Done" button.
