AirBitz is a well-known wallet with an active presence in the Bitcoin community, as such we strongly recommend it.

note – AirBitz has now rebranded as Edge.

This is the landing page for the Airbitz mobile wallet. If you don’t already have one, it can be downloaded from the Apple store or from the Google Play store.  Follow their instructions for installing and setting it up.

When you are ready to import all of the coins from a paper wallet, select ‘Scan’

This is an example of a paper wallet. Yours may look different, but it will have a QR code labeled ‘Private Key’.

This is the QR code that you must scan to be able to get the coin out of the paper wallet.

To get the QR code to scan, move the app closer to the paper wallet until the app automatically recognizes it.

When the app has successfully scanned the QR code, you will be give a choice of options.  You will want to select ‘Import Funds’ so that the coin from the paper wallet will be moved into the Airbitz wallet.
As the coin is being imported, you will see a spinning icon showing that the transfer is in progress
When complete, you will see the balance of your Airbitz wallet has increased by the amount from the paper wallet.

Destroy and discard the paper wallet.  Do not use it again.  This is the recommended way of making sure that your bitcoin purchases are secure.

 

Thank you for your business
