How do I send a blockchain asset? (Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc.)

To send blockchain assets with Exodus click Wallet on the left sidebar. Then choose the blockchain asset you would like to send. These instructions work for any blockchain asset. In this example we will send Ethereum. Click Ethereum then click the send button.

Just like traditional bank transfers Exodus needs the address you want to send to. This address is similar to a bank account number. You can request an address from the person you want to send Ethereum to. You can also have an Ethereum wallet on a mobile device and send Ethereum to yourself on another device.

Blockchain addresses are a long string of characters. Because it is easy to mistype a character the best practice is to copy the Ethereum address to your clipboard and paste it into the to field. Alternatively, if you have a QR code you can click the QR code button, located on the left side of the to field, to scan the QR code. Exodus will then import the blockchain address from the QR code and type it for you.

Next type the amount you want to send. Exodus lets you send in the blockchain unit, in this example we could send 0.5 Ethereum or ½ of an Ethereum. However, because the rate of Ethereum fluxuates, if you prefer to work in your native currency, simply click the button on the right side to toggle the currency between Ethereum and US dollars. You can then type in 5.00 USD and Exodus does the conversion to Ethereum for you.

Once you review the confirmation line telling you how much you are sending, click the Send button. Exodus will then confirm again you want to send the amount to the address. This is a good place to pause for a moment and double check your amount and address. If all looks good, click send.

Exodus takes a few moments to prepare the transaction then send it. Depending on the receiving wallet the transaction should show up within a minute or two.
