Using Blockchain Info For Lower BTC Fees
We have done extensive testing over the years to make sure bitcoin transactions are delivered the fastest way possible. Because Exodus prioritizes speed and reliability over low fees, Exodus will always dynamically set the highest price to deliver your transactions. This, of course, may not be suitable for your needs and so we offer this solution: you can use Blockchain.Info to manually set your fees.
Starting version 1.57.0 - you can only View your Private Keys inside Exodus. The View Private Keys window allows you to copy your private keys and use them as you wish, however, please make sure no one is around your system (physically or through remote screen share) when you are doing this. Be sure to close the Window once you are done - do not save your Private Keys anywhere online.

WARNING: ONCE YOU IMPORT YOUR PRIVATE KEYS, YOU CANNOT DELETE THEM FROM BLOCKCHAIN.INFO WALLET
STEP 1: VIEW YOUR PRIVATE KEYS
Windows and Linux
- Press CTRL + SHIFT + D to open the developer menu. Make sure you don't have any other application windows open at the same time.
- Then select Developer > Assets > Bitcoin > View Private Keys
How to open the Developer Menu? https://support.exodus.io/article/79-how-do-i-open-the-developer-menu
- Go to Exodus > Developer > Assets > Bitcoin > View Private Keys
Exodus will ask "Are you sure?" Click "I'm Sure."
You will then see a new Window on your desktop which shows you the Private Keys.
We must warn you that exposing your private keys puts your funds at risk. NEVER keep your private keys saved on a file on your computer or on a USB stick. If someone gets a hold of your private keys, they can steal your funds without logging into your Exodus account.
STEP 2: SIGN UP TO BLOCKCHAIN.INFO
Go to https://blockchain.info/wallet/#/signup to create a new wallet.
STEP 3: IMPORT YOUR EXODUS BTC ADDRESS
On the left side column, click on Settings > Addresses
Then click on Import Bitcoin Address.
It will ask you for your private key. Copy and Paste the private key with funds into the text field then click Import. If the private key is valid, you will get a pop up that says your associated address and your balance:
Click on Transfer to transfer the funds. It will then ask you to transfer funds, but it will charge you very little to do so.
STEP 4: SEND FUNDS
Click on the Send button at the top.
You'll then get a pop-up where you can specify the receiving address and the amount you want to send.
You can specify the fee you'd like by pressing on "Regular" or "Priority".
Be warned that with low fees, your transaction may take several hours to confirm on the blockchain.
STEP 5: REFRESH YOUR WALLET
Back to Exodus, go to your Bitcoin Wallet, and then click on the logo to rescan the blockchain. This will update your balance.
