Transferring Tokens to Another Wallet

Step 1

Once you have connected your wallet navigate to the “My Balances” page by clicking on “Balances” in the nav bar and then “Full Balances” from the dropdown. Find the token you would like to send to another wallet and click the “Transfer” button.

Note: The token must be in your wallet (not deposited to IDEX) and you may need to query the blockchain for the token to show up.

Step 2

Once you have clicked the “Transfer” button on the asset you’d like to send to another wallet you will receive a popup with input fields for information about the transfer. You must fill in the address were the funds are going, the amount of funds you’d like to transfer, the gas amount (this will automatically fill in with the correct amount for you) and the gas price. To make the transaction go faster use a higher gas price. Once everything is filled in click “Transfer.”

Note: You must have ether in your wallet to send funds to another wallet. IDEX does not and can not pay this gas fee for you.

Step 3

Once you have clicked the “Transfer” button on the popup you will receive a second popup with the transfer details. You must confirm the transfer for it to be sent off to Ethereum to be mined.

Step 4

For MetaMask and Ledger users only — You will receive a popup informing you to confirm the transfer on your respective signing method.

Note: MetaMask users will have to select the gas price on the MetaMask confirmation popup. The MetaMask gas price will override the gas price chosen on IDEX.

Step 5

Your transfer has now been sent off to Ethereum to be mined. You will receive a link to that transaction in a confirmation popup. Once the transaction has been mined you will receive a popup informing you the transfer is complete.
