About your Wallet
Your Easy Crypto Wallet (previously called a ‘portfolio’) is what’s called a “cold wallet”. This means that it is completely offline, and impervious to any attacks or hacking. It is encrypted with the latest AES 256-bit CBC encryption. For the safest storage, put it on a USB drive, and store it in a physically secure location. It is extremely important that you memorise the passphrase you use to unlock your wallet. This passphrase is like the P.I.N to your bank account. Do not share it with anyone.
Open your Portfolio
Open the “completed order” email from Easy Crypto, and save your wallet to your computer or device. Then head to Portfolio page to open it up. Use the pass phrase that you wrote down when you ordered.
If you run into any trouble, have a read of our help article on Opening your Portfolio.
Verify your balance
To verify that your balance exists, you can use an online balance checker. Put ONLY your receive address into the balance checking websites, NOT your private key. You’ll find these addresses inside your wallet. We have a list of some reliable balance checkers in this article: How to verify your balance.
Please be aware that it may take several hours before the funds appear at your address – this depends on how fast the exchanges send it.
How do I send my coins to an exchange or another wallet?
If you wish to spend the coins in your wallet or transfer them elsewhere, you’ll need to use your private key for that. You’ll find the private key inside your wallet.
