HOW TO: Use MyEtherWallet (MEW) To Send/Receive Ethereum & ERC20 Tokens

327 ratings | 26435 views
This guide/tutorial will show you how to setup and use MyEtherWallet (MEW) to create an Ethereum wallet securely (offline) and check your Ethereum/ERC20 token balances using Etherscan. I also provide a high level overview of how to send transactions offline. But I show you how to send Ether/ERC20 tokens online using the JSON/keystore file and password that you generated previously. You can also use MEW with MetaMask, Ledger, Trezor, and Mist, but I showed you the way that doesn't require any 3rd party integration - although they are better for security and may not be too difficult to set up. Let me know if this walkthrough was helpful and if you have any questions about the process? MyEtherWallet is a great resource to get started with a Ethereum wallet so you can get going in the crypto space. ******************************************** Hey everyone, thanks for watching.

How to withdraw it or make it as a real money?

Gotta send it to an exchange, turn it into ETH or BTC, then sell those for USD in Coinbase or another exchange that lets you withdraw money to your bank

okay. watched video. Tried to transfer my KBC and ETH. got an error msg that said I didn't have enough$ to complete transaction.... so I have a couple of questions. 1) which address to I enter, the etherscan wallet address or my public address? 2) how do I fund ETH so I have enough to complete transaction? I am new new new at this. Please be patient with me. I would be happy to email you my number if we could resolve this quicker:-D
Sancha Smith (5 months ago)
It's in my Ethereum wallet.
Bitcoin for Beginners (5 months ago)
where is your KBC and ETH? In your Metamask wallet? If so you need to send a little bit of ETH to the same address that holds your tokens in order to be able to transfer it out of that address
Sancha Smith (5 months ago)

MEW is also a exchange? I mean can i convert ripple in etherium or cardano into etherium?
Bitcoin for Beginners (6 months ago)
no it cannot do that for you
Octavian Immers (6 months ago)
Are there any other software wallets out there that would allow one to send ether from one keystore file to an address (of your choosing)? My problem is that myetherwallet cannot decrypt my keystore file!!! I am providing it with the right password but it simply doesn't work.
Bitcoin for Beginners (6 months ago)
Parity perhaps?
David Otero (6 months ago)
so if i want to receive ERC20 tokens, I have to provide a standard ethereum public address, right?
Bitcoin for Beginners (6 months ago)
Yes

I don't believe those support erc20 tokens.
Tim Smith (8 months ago)
Can someone help me here please????? Here is my dilema: I tried sending trx coins to my nano ledger S through the ledger website which makes you download several apps, one of which is an ether app (classic one). I put in the address ledger gave me and put it in the address bar on coinspot and hit send. It went through but the coins never showed up in my ledger ether app account. (hope that makes sense) I contacted both ledger and coinspot and coinspot said theres nothing they can do and said to contact ledger and show them the address. Ledger replied to me and said we don't support trx but go to "my ether wallet" and see if it went there. So I went and opened a my ether wallet account and am wondering how I get those coins into that wallet. If you can help I'd be forever grateful! THanks, Tom
Bitcoin for Beginners (8 months ago)
You need to figure out how to export your ledger account to my ether wallet. Either through your private key or Json file. Whichever one ledger let's you do.

Thanks, good video. If someone asking me for ERC20 wallet address to send me his company's token, do i need to first add his token to the wallet or just give him my ETH address? 0x167D4f55f997D9f6806F66915C0Fb21b69D8b3f1
michele orr (9 months ago)
You are the first video I've watched that has explained the offline/online aspect this well. And that you have to go back online to do the actual send/receive, barring the rather confusing alternative method you showed briefly. Thank you!

i want to send my erc20 tokens from mew to an exchange. do i need ethereum in mew or the exchange to cover the transaction fee? plz i need to know
Kaye Pellow (9 months ago)
I got hung up on some stuff. When I make this wallet the password is just for that one time wallet and that same password is used twice in the jason file example right. Also once I make that wallet and put something in it I can't add to it right? I need this written out with more detail. I am not confident yet. Also, after I have used it to say put some eth in and send it can someone send back to that wallet or do I have to make a new one with a new address and give that to them to send to me? I need lots of details. Thanks so much.

Good work, as always. You swap info back and forth between the online computer and the offline computer via a flash drive?
Bitcoin for Beginners (10 months ago)
For the source files, yes. But for the signed transactions you might be able to just type it in but it can take a while... lol

Good video bro, For crypto to work in the mainstream community though I think there really needs to be a simple to use wallet. A very secure wallet that is cheap, I know there are things like Trezor and Ledger Nano s but that's not that cheap or easy to use for tech lamen. 0xe3366b99abe0d8ca0811df68350185cb8a5853c5
