February 1, 2020

To set up Jaxx desktop wallet you have to
download it from the website. Just type jaxx.io in the address bar of your browser
or search for Jaxx wallet in your preferred search engine. On their homepage click on the download button
in the top right corner. Choose the desktop version and then the operating
system you’re using. Download the installation file and run it.
When the wallet is installed a new shortcut should appear on your desktop and Jaxx wallet
will open automatically. In this video, we won’t cover all the details
and settings of the Jaxx wallet, we’ll just focus on the fundamental items:
Where you can find your receive address, how to send coins and how to back up of the
wallet, which is the most important part if you want to keep your coins secure and not
lose access to your funds You can find your receive address in the wallet
menu page. Here you can see the most common coins and your balances.
Since you haven’t bought any coins yet all the balances are zero.
As an example, If you want to find your address for receiving Bitcoin, just click on Bitcoin
and then click on the receive button. Here you can see your current Bitcoin receive
address. To copy your receive address simply click
on this copy address button. Now you can open the BitPrime website, then
on the bitcoin product page enter your receive address here.
Since you copied your address from the Jaxx wallet you can just click on the address field
and press CONTROL + V to paste the address. Just to be sure, check that the pasted address
is correct. Don’t forget that your receive address is
different for different coins. Therefore if you want to find your litecoin receive address.
You can find it under the litecoin option. If you want to send coins the process is quite
similar, on the coin page you just press the send button.
You insert the recipient’s address here. Once again, Please double check that the address
is correct because if you send coins to the wrong address you won’t be able to stop
the transaction or get it back in any way. Let just assume that you have received a sell
quote from Bitprime and you have to insert our address. Copy the address from the received
quotation and paste it here. Check that the address is correct, Enter the
quantity and increase it by the relevant transaction fee then Press the send button. To keep your coins safe and secure you should
back up your wallet and protect it with a password.
You can set a password and back up your wallet in the menu which you can open from the dashboard.
Just click on the button with three lines in the top right corner.
For full details, we suggest visiting Jaxx support page.
In short, when the password is set you will need it for sending your assets from the specific
device you are just on. But before you set up your password you should
get the backup passphrase for your wallet. A Passphrase represents a set of 12 words
which you need if you want to access your wallet from a different device or in the event
of you losing access to your wallet for some reason. You can download the Jaxx wallet on a new
device and by entering your passphrase it will restore access to your old wallet. Then you should set a new password for sending
coins from your new device. When the passphrases are shown, make sure
you write them down on paper. Type them back into the fields on the confirmation page and
press confirm. Now your wallet is backed up, You can set
your password which will be needed for sending coins from your current device. We would like to stress out that you should
set your password and keep it, as well as the passphrase, in a safe and secure place. Neither Jaxx as the wallet provider or BitPrime can send you any of them. If you lose them you lose access to your funds so please keep them safe and secured. If you want to learn about exodus desktop

  1. Just downloaded it and there's no three bar menu, and no option for setting a password any more. Have they done away with the menu feature on jaxx now?
