In this guide, we will show you how to setup Exodus Wallet for your Desktop.
Supported Coins:0x ZRX
To get started, visit their official website https://www.exodus.io/
Click > Download
You will have 3 to choose from: Windows, Mac and Linux.
In this version, we will download Windows 64 bit.
After the download, double-click the downloaded file and give it a few seconds to install.
Once it’s done installing a notification pop-up will tell you that the installation was successful.
Click > OK to confirm.
Open the wallet once it’s installed. If you click on Portfolio, you will notice that not all of the coins are listed.
To list all available coins, Click on Settings > Assets > Select all the coins.
Feel free to choose any coins you’d like to show in your portfolio.
Now go back to Portfolio, you will see all the coins that are supported by Exodus fully listed there. Please be sure to always check on Exodus official site or twitter feed for more news on supported coins.
To send coins, Click > Wallet then select which coins you want to send.
For example, if you want to send Aragon; click on Aragon then on Send button.
Another window will pop up where it will ask you for the address and amount of coins you want to send.
Please be sure to have enough Ethereum funds which will enable you to send Ethereum based tokens from Exodus.
Once you’ve filled the information, make sure you double check the address before sending the coins.
When you are ready to send, Click > Send.
To receive coins, Click > Wallet, select the coin you want to receive.
Since we’ve explained how to send Aragon coins, simply follow the same procedure but click on receive instead.
A window with the address and a bunch of other options such as copy address, email address, print address and view on blockchain will be prompted.
Click on the first icon to copy, Copy This Address, and give that address to the sender.
Transactions will be listed under the particular coin dashboard. To check transactions, click on Wallet, select Aragon and you will notice Aragon Transactions (since we haven’t deposited any coins or received it will say “No Aragon transactions”).
This will be the same step for every coin supported by Exodus wallet. The same steps apply for other coins on how to send/receive or view transactions.
Backing Up Exodus Wallet
To back up your wallet, we need to make a deposit. Use the method from above, on how to receive coins. Once you’ve received coins, click > Backup.
However, ensure you use a very strong password that contains letters, symbols, and characters. Perferably a 12 character word. Please be sure to keep your password safe!
Next, confirm the password on the next step.
Now we need to save the 12-words recover phrase. This recover phrase allows you to recover your wallet in case of loss or damage.
We don’t recommend users saving their 12 words digitally in any way. A USB can become infected, and a malicious person can just copy the file without the owner knowing it. We also don’t recommend writing it down as some people may misspell a word, or they may copy it out of order.
So we highly recommend users to “PRINT” and save that piece of paper in locked safe!
Type your email address in to receive an email from Exodus. They will send you a backup link for safe keeping. You will need this if you lose access to your computer.
