If you have some Electroneum coins in your app wallet and wish to send them to an offline paper wallet, here are the steps you can take to do so.
For starters, you’ll first need to create an offline paper wallet to which you will send the coins. See how to do that here: How to Create an Electroneum Paper Wallet.
Once your offline wallet is ready you can print it out (optional) and get started:
Using the Electroneum Andriod App
Once you are registered and logged into the app, go to the Wallet tab at the bottom. Tap on Send to show that you wish to send some coins.
You’ll now be presented with the Send screen. To enter the public wallet address of your offline wallet, tap on Scan Wallet QR Code. The app might ask permission to use your camera the first time, so click on Allow.
Bring the phone close to the public wallet QR code and make sure the entire QR code is within the clear block.
The phone will beep or vibrate once it has recognized the code.
Tip: If you are unable to scan the QR code for some reason, you can always enter the code into the space provided. The app will confirm the validity of the address with a green checkmark.
It now brings you to the payment ID screen. Payment IDs are used to distinguish between multiple people depositing to the same public address and are often used by exchanges. If you’re just transferring the money onto a paper wallet there’s no need to enter a payment ID, so just tap on Skip, I don’t Have a Payment ID.
Note: If you are using this guide to transfer to an exchange, you NEED to enter the payment ID as well, else your funds will be lost.
You are now shown a screen that asks how much ETN you would like to send. Enter the amount and then click on Review Transfer.
A screen appears showing all the codes you’ve entered and the amount you wish to send. Take a minute to review all the inputs.
Note that you will be charged a fee for this transaction. This fee differs dynamically based on network traffic but won’t be more than 0.2 ETN. This fee will be deducted from the remaining balance on your app wallet, so make sure you have enough to cover both the transfer and the fee.
If at any point you are unsure about the inputs, you can click the back button to fix them before confirming.
Once you are sure everything is perfect, click on Confirm and Send.
Enter your PIN code that you set up at registration.
After validating, you’ll be shown a success screen like the one below.
You can now click on Return to Wallet.
Take note of the message displayed. The balance on your app wallet may reduce or even be 0 until the transaction is completed. Sending another transfer before this one is completed may result in a failure of both transactions.
The main wallet screen will now show the transaction you’ve just completed as Pending. The transaction is now sent off to the blockchain to be processed by the miners. You’ll need to wait a couple of minutes for it to be confirmed.
After a while, you can refresh the wallet, and the transaction should then show as Processing. It will also show the amount sent in a red color. Red doesn’t mean anything is wrong, it just means the coins are leaving your app wallet and going to the paper wallet.
And that’s it. In the meanwhile, you can enter the transaction hash (or transaction ID) and paste into the search box at blockexplorer.electroneum.com to track the progress of your transaction in the blockchain.
A Temporary Solution for iPhone Users
While Apple is approving the iOS app on the App Store, iPhone users will be able to use the online wallet manager software to complete this process.
