This allows you to download your unencrypted private key -or- obtain an encrypted geth/Mist JSON file from your encrypted private key or older encrypted JSON file. You may want to do this in order to import your account into Geth/Mist. You can also do this with the MyEtherWallet CX and save your wallet for easier and quicker access.

If you just want to check your balance, we recommend using a blockchain explorer like EtherChain, EtherScan, or live.ether.camp

Send Transaction

Transfer total available balance

+ Advanced Options

* We use standard rates for all gas + a itty-bitty bit more to ensure it gets mined quickly. If you move 1 Ether the total transaction will be that 1 Ether + current gas price + 1 gwei in gas. We do not take a transaction fee.

Offline Transaction

Generating offline transactions can be done in 3 (relatively) easy steps. You will complete steps 1 and 3 on an online computer, and step 2 on an offline/airgapped computer. Alternatively, you can use this entirely online in order to send data with your transaction or alter the gas limit.


Step 1: Generate Information (Online Computer)

Note: This is the FROM address, not the TO address. Nonce is generated from the originating account. If using an airgapped computer, it would be the address of the cold-storage account.


Step 2: Generate Transaction (Offline Computer)


Step 3: Send / Publish Transaction (Online Computer)

Paste the signed transaction from Step 2 here and press the "SEND TRANSACTION" button.

"The DAO"

The best way to participate in the DAO Creation is to send a transaction to The DAO Address from the account you want to do the voting with in the future. You can do that here! Simply access the account, enter the amount of ETH you would like, and press send. Your tokens will be displayed in the lower left almost immediately.

It should be noted that in order to participate in the voting process later, you will need a small amount of ETH to cover the cost of gas.

Do you see something missing? Have another question? Get in touch with us and we will not only answer your question, we will update this page to be more useful to people in the future!

First, a reminder

  • Ethereum, MyEtherWallet.com & MyEtherWallet CX, and some of the underlying Javascript libraries we use are under active development. While we have tested thoroughly & tens of thousands of wallets have been successfully created by people all over the globe, there is always the remote possibility that something unexpected happens that causes your ETH to be lost. While do everything we can to ensure that this does not happen and are available via email/reddit/twitter to assist in every way we can, this possibility still exists. Please do not invest more than you are willing to lose and please be careful. If something were to happen, we are sorry, but we are not responsible for the lost Ether.
  • MyEtherWallet.com & MyEtherWallet CX are not "web wallets". You do not create an account or give us your Ether to hold onto. All data is created on our computer/your browser, not our servers. It's not a website where you put your Ether and we store them for you. We just make it easy for you to save your wallet information in your browser/on your computer. Then we give you a place you to access that information and do stuff with it.
  • Please, do not forget to save your private key & password when you create a new wallet. Back them up in multiple phsyically locations – not just on your computer!
  • Please make sure you are sending to the correct address.
  • Please reach out to us with any and all feedback you have, especially with things that confuse you or error messages that don't make sense.

Security

One of your first questions is, "Why should I trust these people?" You are probably worried that this site isn't secure. That is a good thing. When dealing with currency and the internet, you should be paranoid. But, let's try to be a bit reasonable.

At this point, we have not had our code audited. Apparently, it costs a fair bit of money to get code audited. If you or a team you know would be willing to help us out in the auditing department, please let us know. Here is a reddit thread with another user asking for someone to audit us. You can reach out to us in a variety of ways.

Here are some things to alleviate any paranoia you have:

  • We've been up and running since August 2015. If you search for "myetherwallet" on reddit, you can see numerous people who use us and no complaints or reports of stolen funds.
  • We aren't going to take your money or steal your private key(s). There is no malicious code on this site. In fact the "GENERATE WALLET" and "BULK GENERATE" tabs are completely client-side. That means that all the code is executed on your computer and it is never sent to the servers or to us or anywhere else in the magical internet land.
  • Check the URL -- This site is being served through GitHub and you can see the source code here: https://github.com/kvhnuke/etherwallet to the domains: http://kvhnuke.github.io/etherwallet/ and https://www.myetherwallet.com (our new domain with SSL). You can verify it's hosted at GitHub by using http://viewdns.info/dnsrecord/?domain=myetherwallet.com - last two A record IPs are owned by GitHub for their custom domain hosting.
  • For generating wallets, you can download the source code by using the "DOWNLOAD ZIP" button in the aforementioned link. Then, disconnect your computer from the internet and / or move that .zip file via flash drive to an air-gapped computer. Unzip the file, open the dist folder, double-click on "index.html", and you have the exact same thing happening on your air-gapped computer. You can now generate wallets on that computer without fear that we are stealing you heart and soul and first-born child. (Obviously, the "Send Transaction" tab is not going to work without the internet. Sorry!)
  • Do a test run and check and see what network activity is happening. The easiest way for you (yes, YOU!) to do this (if you are using Chrome) is to right click on the page and click "inspect element". Now, go to the "Network" tab. Then, generate a wallet. Any wallet, any password—this is a test, remember. You will see there is no network activity. You may see something happening that looks like data:image/gif and data:image/png. Those are the QR codes being generated...on your computer...by your computer. No bytes were transferred.
  • Now, to be safe, move over to the "Resources" tab. Here you can see all the different elements that make up a website. That includes things like the HTML (the base of what you see on the page), images (pretty pictures! Usually in .jpg, .gif, or .png format), the CSS (the stuff that makes the HTML look so pretty), the JS (the stuff that makes the HTML do other stuff, like making QR codes show up when you press Generate), Local Storage (one way of storing things on your local machine), Cookies (yum! Another way for sites to store data on your machine), and caches (yet another way to store stuff on your machine, usually to make things go faster). If you click through Local Storage, Cookies, and Cache, you will see nothing is being stored. Nothing is being saved. Refresh the page and you are back to square one.
  • If you do not feel comfortable using this tool, then by all means, do not use it. We created this tool as a helpful way for people to generate wallets and make transactions without needing to dive into command line / geth / etc. Again, feel free to reach out if you have concerns and we will respond as quickly as possible. Thanks!
