How to import BTC from a cryptonow wallet to a desktop PC wallet?

When you have successfully purchased your cryptocurrency via the cryptonow voucher card (www.cryptonow.ch/go) 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 cryptonow wallet to a desktop PC wallet. Please note that there are many desktop wallets, you can also use another one.


1.) Cryptonow Wallet

On the backside of the cryptonow voucher card you can find the private key covered by a scratch-off field. When importing the Bitcoins from the cryptonow wallet to a mobile wallet you first have to un-scratch carefully the private key field with your fingernails or a small coin.
