How to import your BTC to a desktop wallet

When you have successfully purchased your cryptocurrency at our ATM or Värdex Exchange Points you might want to send your coins to someone else or simply have them more readily available than on the cold storage wallet.

We have created a small guide for importing your Bitcoins from the paper wallet to the desktop wallet application. Please note that there are many desktop wallets, you can also use another one.

To start download the Exodus-Desktop Wallet from the official website https://www.exodus.io
