How to send out your tokens

To manage your unsupported tokens and send them out of your Exodus wallet's ETH address, you’ll need to:

First you will need to view your ETH private key and copy it.
Once you have your Ethereum private key from your Exodus wallet, please open MyEtherWallet.
Once you are on the MyEtherWallet website, click Software.

Click on  Private Key.

Paste your Exodus Ethereum private key in the box, click the checkbox, then click Access Wallet.

This will bring you to the dashboard screen. On the left side of the page, click on Send Transaction.

If the token you want to send doesn't show up in the token section, you'll need to add it manually, so click +Custom Tokens and follow this official guide to add it. This will add your custom token to the list of token balances.
Select the token to send in the first drop down menu.

Now all you need to do is enter the number of tokens to send and the address you want to send your tokens to and click Next.

A pop-up will display with the transaction details. Review them and confirm everything is correct. If everything looks good, just click Confirm and Send.

How to check your token balances

If you send an unsupported ERC20 token to your Exodus wallet, it will be stored at your wallet address. However, Exodus will not display it. You can confirm your token balance on an Ethereum Blockchain Explorer like Etherscan by pasting in your ETH address in the search bar and clicking on the ERC20 Token dropdown menu:
