Basically, in order to get yourself a Bitcoin address, you must install Bitcoin wallet from https://bitcoin.org/en/download. You will get your Bitcoin address right away after installing the wallet to your machine, but you must sync all the Bitcoin blockchain into your machine (it is now over 100GB at the article written date) in order to perform transaction on your Bitcoin address.
There are other alternative methods to get a Bitcoin address easily. One of the best method that I found is to sign up an account at cryptocurrency’s exchanger, then you can get all of the cryptocurrency’s address that listed on the exchanger. The only risk of doing so is your bitcoin stores in the exchanger’s wallet, so you must get a reliable exchanger. There are a lot of popular cryptocurrency’s exchangers, here I introduce one of the best exchanger – HitBTC.
Here I show you step by step on Registering HitBTC as following:-
1: “Register”, click on this to register a new account.
2: “Sign in”, this button is to login to your account. Use it next time when you have your account.
4: Input your desired password to login to HitBTC. The password must be at least 6 characters with one number, one uppercase, and one lowercase letter.
5. Click “Register” button to register your new account. After your successful registration, you have to check your email for the confirmation email.
8. Then you have a collapsed details with empty “Wallet address” and a “Create new” button. Click on “Create new” button will generate a BTC address for you.
9. Click on “Copy” button will copy your BTC address to clipboard.
10. You can re-generate a new BTC address if you don’t like this one.
There you go your BTC address, and you may also get wallet address for other altcoins by repeating steps 7 to 9 on other altcoins.
You can use this BTC address to receive free coins from faucet, or any other purposes as a recipient address.
