Before learning how to create a digital wallet on an iOS device, be sure to go over our Tips and Advice Page as well as our What is a Digital Wallet Page, and How To Create a Digital Wallet on Your iOS Device.
In this section, we are going to go over how to move the Bitcoin from your receipt that was printed out from our Bitcoin ATM over to your newly created digital wallet on your iOS device. From there, you will be able to send the Bitcoin you just purchased to anywhere you want!
Open up the Blockchain bitcoin wallet app on your iOS device, and click on the three horizontal lines in the top left corner.
A menu should now appear on the left side of your screen, and one of your menu options should be ADDRESSES. Select the ADDRESSES option. This will bring you to your address book. The address book is a collection of addresses that are in your wallet, and you can also create new addresses here.
PRO TIP: Once you have a digital wallet set up you don't need to select the 'Create New Wallet' option at our machine anymore. Meaning, you don't have to print out the paper wallets with the QR codes anymore. You can just scan the wallet QR code directly (like in the picture above) from your mobile wallet on your iOS device. That means no more paper wallets! This will save you a lot of time, effort, and trees :)
Click the '+' that is located to the right of IMPORTED ADDRESSES. This will activate the camera on your device. Hold your camera over the Private Key (bottom QR code) on your paper wallet and wait a few seconds until your device recognizes the Private Key. MAKE SURE TO COVER THE TOP QR CODE WITH YOUR HAD LIKE THE PHOTO BELOW. It is important to only scan the bottom QR code as this is what will move your Bitcoin into your digital wallet.
Finished - Next Steps:
Congrats! You have hopefully by now imported the Bitcoin from your receipt.
Now that you have imported your Bitcoin, you have the ability to send your Bitcoin to anyone in the world. To learn more on how to send bitcoin, receive bitcoin, or how to back up your new wallet, click on the buttons below...
Note: We HIGHLY RECOMMEND backing up your wallet if you have not already. If for some reason you lose your phone without backing up your wallet you risk losing all the Bitcoin you have stored/imported there.
