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. In order to get started with Ripple, first of all you need to register a Ripple wallet with official website. 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 and make your account by entering your email i’d and desired password and hit the Sign Up button.

Step 2 : You’ll be awarded with a Secret Account Key, in case that you lose your wallet name or passphrase. Note down this key and save on a safe place.

After you stored Recovery Key activate your GateHub account by clicking Activate account button in the email you received.

Step 3 : Now login with your user name / password. You’ll be asked for identification verification. Type in your phone number and click Confirm. Enter 4 digit verification PIN you received via SMS and click Verify. Click Continue after phone number has been successfully verified. Follow the instructions and complete all 5 steps before connecting a gateway.

* You can skip steps 2, 3, 4 and 5 by clicking Skip, I’ll do this later. When depositing a crypto currency (such as BTC, ETH, ETC or REP) GateHub doesn’t require full identity verification.

Step 4 : To check your ripple wallet address navigate to “Wallet” which is disabled by default. you need to activate it with a small XRP deposit in order to make the account usable. Note down the wallet address and send 50 XRP coins first.

    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!
