Send & Receive

This is one of the core building blocks of Jolofcoin. Sending and receiving JOL securely over the internet gives your JOL value. To send and receive, you need a wallet where you will put the public address of the sender and recipient.

Buy & Exchange

On the Jolofcoin platform ( you can securely buy JOL with FIAT, or exchange it to a popular cryptocurrency (BTC, ETH, DOGE, etc).

In Q3, you can sell and buy JOL on crypto exchanges. 


Jolofcoin mining is the process of creating new JOL by solving extremely complicated math problems that verify transactions in the currency. When a JOL is successfully mined, the miner receives a predetermined amount of Jolofcoin.
