FAST and EASY: Withdraw Grin from any Exchange

Welcome, welcome to One Minute Crypto! I’m your host, Chronos, and today we are
going to walk through exactly how to withdraw Grin from an exchange into your wallet. Grin is a scalable, privacy-focused blockchain. It’s a thing of beauty, but it’s not always
easy to get set up, because transactions are interactive, which means
the sender and the receiver connect directly to each other in order to complete a transfer. If the exchange you’re withdrawing from
wants you to put in an HTTP or HTTPS address, this video should be perfect for you. There are a lot of great Grin wallets out
there, such as Wallet713, Grin++, Niffler, but if you have to use a direct HTTP connection,
I recommend Niffler for beginners, because it has something called the Hedwig Relay that
makes this process really easy. You won’t have to mess around with firewalls
or port forwarding to make this work. So in this video, we’re going to download
the Niffler wallet, install it, set it up, turn on the Hedwig relay, and withdraw our
first Grin from an exchange into the new wallet. Let’s get started. The first thing we need to do is download
the Niffler wallet software, and that’s not actually that easy, because at the time
of this recording it doesn’t have its own website. The best place to get it is directly from
its Github webpage, at Scroll down and pick the link that
matches your operating system. After it’s done downloading, run the installer,
and fire it up. During this process, you might see a message
pop up about your firewall on your computer. You need to allow a connection from the outside
in order to make this work, so if you see a message like this, hit “Allow Access.” OK, the first screen you’re going to see
when you run Niffler looks something like this. Since you’re a new user, hit “Create New
Wallet.” First, you pick a password. Then, get your seed words. These words allow you to recover the wallet
if it gets deleted by accident, or if you forget your password. I recommend writing them down physically on a piece of
paper, just to be safe. When you’re done, hit the button at the
bottom, and enter your password one more time, and your wallet is ready to go! Now, let’s put some Grin into it. Today, we’re going to walk through using
HTTP with the Hedwig relay service, but if the exchange gave you a file to import, you’ll
just hit the Receive button, and then choose Create Response Transaction File. You’ll choose the file they gave you, which
creates another file that you upload back to the exchange in order to finish the
transaction. But let’s get going with Hedwig by pressing
Receive via Hedwig. This brings up a pop-up dialog, and you’ll
hit Start. After it connects, it gives you an HTTP address. This is the address that is connected directly
into your wallet! All you have to do is copy it, and provide
it to the exchange. For example, here’s the withdrawal dialog
from Poloniex, one popular Grin exchange, asking for an address. Just paste what you got from Niffler into that
box, type in the amount, hit Withdraw, and after a moment, the Grin shows up in your
wallet. If you have any questions, feel free to post
