Easy Crypto Wallet Guide
Important: EC Wallet is no longer offered, this guide is only for customers who had a wallet issued prior to May 2020.
The Easy Crypto wallet is a cold wallet, which is the safest type of wallet you can store your crypto in. 💼
This is because cold wallets are 100% offline, meaning that they are protected from unauthorized access, cyber hacks, and other vulnerabilities that a system connected to the internet is susceptible to. The downside to a cold wallet is that there are no moving parts, and no software attached. The result of this is that you cant send directly from a cold wallet - but you can import your wallet into a hot wallet where you can send from.
Cold wallets are made up from a pair of keys; a public key and a private key.
Your public key is like your bank account number, and your private key is like your account password. Another analogy would be that your cold wallet is like a PO Box. People can send you mail to your PO Box, and you can use a key to unlock it to retrieve the money, but you can't send mail directly from your PO Box. People can send you crypto to your public address, and you can access your funds using your private key, but you can't send from your cold wallet.
So, how do I send from my Easy Crypto wallet then? You need to import your private key into a hot wallet that you can send from.
