How To Setup Ripple Wallet and Address


Ripple (XRP), a bitcoin alternative or successor is making it’s way in the world of digital currency.

Ripple is still in beta so currently the only official client is that web client at I assume that as Ripple gains popularity there will be mobile phone clients and desktop clients just like bitcoin. Following are the instructions to setup a ripple wallet and ripple address.

Step 1 : Go to

Ripple  Wallet

    Great article, will recommend it to my friends who are curious to learn more about ripple and the possibility of free international money transfers. – I followed your instructions above, but could not activate my ripple wallet since I am not a bitcoin user.
    — would you be so kind and send me 100 or more ripples to activate my wallet?

    I’m the first one from Russia! The pioneer!
    I could not find any chance to activate the account, except “have another user to send you 100 or more XRP”, couse “join SnapSwap gateway” is not the case – it requires USA residence!

    So, please help me and send XRP to

    Thank you very much in advance!
