As a new user, you can get started with Virtacoin without understanding the technical details. Once you've installed a Virtacoin wallet on your computer or mobile phone, it will generate your first Virtacoin address and you can create more whenever you need one. You can disclose your addresses to your friends so that they can pay you or vice versa. In fact, this is pretty similar to how email works, except that Bitcoin addresses should be used only once.
Works everywhere, anytime
Security and control over your money

VirtaCoin Belongs to You
VirtaCoin is "owned" by everyone who holds the currency. It is up to the VirtaCoin community to collectively contribute and make VirtaCoin what you want it to be. How you contribute depends on your skills, abilities and available time. Please consider helping in one or more of the following areas...
Forums – VirtaCoin needs places for the community to gather and discuss issues and ideas. You could set up a forum, become a moderator, or even just contribute your ideas and opinions on a VirtaCoin community forum.
Exchanges – If you would like to exchange your VirtaCoin for bitcoin, for other crypto-currencies, or even for fiat currency, please contact crypto-currency exchanges and follow their procedures to ask them to list VirtaCoin.
Solo Mining – To earn more VirtaCoin and contribute computing power to securing the VirtaCoin network, you can try solo mining.
Mining Pools – If you have the knowledge, you can create a mining pool. This helps large groups of people to work together and share in the mining rewards, while helping to secure the VirtaCoin network.
Developers – If you are a programmer, or know someone who is, you can help to maintain and improve VirtaCoin by working on the open source VirtaCoin Project on GitHub.
