PKT Wallets Guide

Before you buy or mine PKT, you have to first setup your wallet. There are a few wallets that support PKT & WPKT and each one has its benefits. It’s also important to note that not all wallets are to be used for mining.

When mining PKT, you get paid every 60 seconds. This will generate a lot of transactions and some wallets will virtually freeze when they synchronize. The wallets that aren’t mining compatible cannot process a large amount of transactions all at once during the sync process. If you only intend on buying and storing PKT you can use any wallet.

You do not have to keep your wallet running while you mine.
