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.
