So a tech savvy mate is wanting to send you some ‘Strayacoin’. The first thing you need to do is to get yourself an Strayacoin Wallet. You will need a (digital) wallet so people can send you strayacoins and so that you can keep your eye on those digital dollarydoos.
Strayacoin Wallets are available for many platforms/operating systems..See below for a variety of (Non-Custodial) wallets. But if you are after a ‘quick and dirty’ (Custodial) wallet then you can setup an account at an exchange either at Tradeogre, Altmarkets or Graviex. Then use your strayacoin receive address on these exchanges to send to your mates so they can then pay you. But remember an exchange is a custodial wallet meaning they hold your private keys to your wallet, not you.
