Sending Ethereum from the Wallet app is as easy as choosing the amount to send and deciding where it goes.

Step-by-step instructions to send Ethereum (ETH)

Sending ETH is a simple matter of entering the address you want to send to and the amount to send. Here's what a typical Ethereum address looks like:


Here are detailed instructions for sending ETH using the Wallet app:

  1. From the app's home screen, select the ETH wallet you want to send your transaction from. Eg. "My ETH Wallet."

  2. You should now see information for that wallet, including its balance and transaction history. Tap the "Send" (paper airplane) icon.

  3. Enter the ETH address you wish to send to. You can paste the address from your clipboard in the space at the top, select the "Scan a QR code" option, send to an address you've previously saved, or send to another of your own ETH wallets within the Wallet.

  4. Having entered an address to send to, on the next screen you'll enter the amount you want to send. Note that you can enter the amount to send in either ETH terms or local currency terms. Tap the up/down arrows to toggle between the two modes. When you're ready, tap "Continue" to proceed to the final send screen.

  5. The final step is to slide the bar to complete the send. Before sliding the bar, review your transaction to ensure all the details are as intended. Note: the fee for sending is also displayed on this screen, and you do have the option to customize your fees.

Having slid the bar to complete your send, you'll be presented with a summary of your transaction. You'll see the amount sent (displayed in both local currency terms and ETH terms) and the address sent to. You'll also see the status of the transaction (pending or confirmed). Tapping on the 'transaction hash' will take you to, where you can see the complete details of your transaction.

Check the "Save Address" button to save this address to your address list. Tap "Share" to send a report of this transaction wherever you want (for example, to the receiver). Finally, you have the option to add a personal note to this transaction. This can act as a reminder to yourself. For example, "The money I owed to Lisa for dinner."
