Proj 13: Exodus Wallet (10 pts.)

What You Need


To set up an local Ethereum wallet, so you can send and receive Ether without entrusting anyone else with your private keys.

Go to:

At the top right, click DOWNLOAD.

On the next page, click the link to get the version for your OS.

Install it on your system.

Launch Exodus. You see the Welcome screen, as shown below.

Getting a Receive Address

In the Exodus window, on the left, click Wallet. In the list of currencies, click Ethereum, as shown below.

On the right, click RECEIVE.

An address appears, as shown below.

Getting some Ether

Get someone to send some Ether to that address. If you have done project X1, you can send it yourself from Coinbase, as shown below.

Notice that the network fee is very low for Ether--just 6 cents when I did it (10-24-17).

In Exodus, the transaction appear at first as "PENDING", as shown below.

Saving a Screen Image

Make sure you can see a transaction in Exodus, as shown above.

Capture a full-screen image.


Save the image with the filename "YOUR NAME Proj 13", replacing "YOUR NAME" with your real name.

Confirmed Transaction

It will take about 2 minutes to be confirmed. When that happens, your wallet will look like the image below.

Turning in your Project

Email the images to with the subject line: Proj 13 from YOUR NAME.
