Where can I get a Madesafecoin address?
Just use omniwallet and generate a new bitcoin address. The maidsafecoins will be sent to the bitcoin address.

Here’s a nice topic with more info:|
Option #2 is the most secure, and not much harder once you feel confident that it works.
Here is a post by @Jabba (that triple-instilled my confidence), which I will modify:
"It takes less than 30 seconds to go to http://www.bitaddress.org, wiggle the mouse and type randomly until it hits 100% and you get a public and private key pairing generated that you own and control.
Literally all you have to do is send your MAID to that public address and keep the private key noted down very safely (in triplicate prob).
When you want to access your coins it takes 1 minute to go to http://www.omniwallet.org, create a wallet or open the one you use regularly, click ‘import’ in ‘my addresses’ section, then you just type in the private key you have written down and you’re done, your coins are now in your OmniWallet.
Safe, free, quick and very easy. Never a good idea to store your coins on exchange long term, a lot of people have learned that lesson the hard and expensive way.
I only learned how to do this myself quite recently, I was amazed how easy it actually is. Spend 2 minutes learning how to do it, it’s worth it and far easier than you’d think."
Option #3 is to get a Maidsafecoin address stored on a different website, which exists. But I don’t know much about those personally. (Honesty is a good thing, right?) If someone points us in the direction of other websites, I could edit this post to include them and thus be a great post for literally all the current ways to get a Maidsafecoin address. I remember hearing http://www.blockchain.info has private keys you control, and is more secure than OmniWallet is right now because of 2FA (actually I don’t know about the 2FA part; I think it’s just another place you can control your private key). There was also another website akin to OmniWallet whose name escapes me, possibly with better security as well because of 2FA. (OmniWallet’s not-absolutely-perfect security doesn’t bother me too much, but maybe that’s a flaw on my part. It would be a flaw on many people’s part, too, because there are a huge amount of people who use OmniWallet today/presently. And they don’t have 2FA currently.) Maybe there is yet another website(s), too! BTW OmniWallet-type websites are useful so you can have one place to view all your coins’ information. Some people might think it best to never use a website like that, even if it was high level security, because there are other ways to view your coins’ information. But OmniWallet does have a lot of information all at once to view for your convenience, so there’s that, instead of finding all that information manually all the time.
Thx for all the good information!
