Move Your Crypto From Jaxx Liberty to Edge
Note, moving your funds from the desktop version of Jaxx Liberty and the browser extension is exactly the same as mobile in terms of where to navigate inside of the app to view your backup seed. For that reason, we’ve only shown the mobile screenshots below, but the same exact steps can be followed across all platforms.
If you already have Edge Wallet on your device, and you already have an account, skip the steps from 5 to 7.
- Open your Jaxx Liberty Wallet and tap the hamburger button on the top right to go to Settings
- Tap Security
- Tap View Backup Phrase
- Write down the 12 word phrase (do not store this digitally), which you will later enter in Edge
- Download Edge Wallet from your App Store or Play Store. You can also find the links here https://edge.app/
- You will need to create a new account, by choosing a username and a password.
Remember: the account is client-side encrypted, so the wallets will remain non-custodial, just like in your Jaxx Liberty wallet!
Here you can find the account creation steps: https://edgeapp.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/7019038717339-How-do-I-create-an-account-
- Select a few wallets at the end of the account creation: they will be additional wallets, not linked to your Jaxx Liberty wallets.
You cannot directly import your Jaxx wallets during the account creation but you will need to follow the steps below.
- Login into your brand new Edge account and tap Add Wallet
- Select the wallets you wish to import from Jaxx and tap Next
- Note: make sure you select the wallets that show (no Segwit) for BTC, DGB, and LTC.
- For ZEC, please send your funds from Jaxx Liberty to ZEC Wallet, or another Zcash wallet of your choice, as these funds won’t properly appear inside of Edge.
- Tap Import Wallets
- Enter the 12 words you previously wrote down with 100% accuracy, do not include numbers, only the words and spaces, for example:
wine drink high window fury wave unhappy chunk alert cable recycle rug
- Tap Next
- Tap Done
The same wallets you used in Jaxx Liberty will be imported into Edge and have the same keys. For example, you will notice that your ETH address on Jaxx Liberty will have the same address when viewed in Edge. The wallets are in fact "clones", so they have the same addresses and balances, but it is possible that you will NOT be able to move the funds from Jaxx, since it's deprecated.
These imported wallets will be together with the Edge wallets you selected during account creation (step 7.).
So, for instance, if you selected BTC and ETH during account creation and you imported the BTC and ETH wallets you had in Jaxx, you will notice you will have two BTC wallets and two ETH wallets.
*Important* After importing your Jaxx wallets into Edge, we highly suggest to do an additional step to maximize the security of your funds: use Migrate Wallets feature.
This procedure is optional and comes with onchain fees, but it transfers your funds into brand new wallets, whose private keys are never been exported externally, so it's a good practice.
To do so tap Menu > Settings > Migrate Wallets and then select all the wallets you previously imported from Jaxx.
Once you tap Next and confirm, your funds will be transferred to the new wallets and the wallets you imported from Jaxx will be named "old", so you can easily recognize them.
You can archive the empty old wallets if you prefer, or leave them in your account.
If you have any questions or concerns in completing this process please contact our support team at email@example.com and we’ll be happy to help.
