Ethereum Tutorial to Create adresses with PHP
When sending or receiving ERC-20 Tokens, you need an address which is compatible with the Ethereum Blockchain. Of course, most people are using their wallets to create valid addresses. But what if you need to create hundreds of thousands of addresses for your users? Or create deposit addresses automatically whenever one of your users wants to pay you? In this case, you will need a better way of generating addresses in an automated and easy way. We have written an extensive tutorial for that. Keep on reading.

- Replace “YOURAPIKEY” in line 3 of above code with the API Key in your Chaingateway.io Account Panel.
- Replace “PASSWORD” in line 4 of above code with a very secure password (at least 12 characters alphanumeric of different case). Don’t lose this password as you can’t recover it!

Congratulations! You should now see a new generated address which you can use to send and receive ERC-20 Tokens.
