How do I export my YEC private keys?

Warning: YCash (YEC) will be delisted from Atomic Wallet due to a lack of demand on September 5th, 2022. 

After YEC has been delisted, you will not be able to see your balance, send, or receive the coin in Atomic Wallet. If you haven't sent out your YEC before September 5th, 2022, you will need to export your YEC private keys into another wallet and manage your funds from there. 


Getting your YEC private key

The YEC private keys are no longer available in the newest versions of the app. In order to get your YEC private key you will need to download an older version of the app first. Uninstall your current version of the app (remember to save your 12-word phrase!). Here's where you can find the older versions: 

Android, Windows, Mac, Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora

Note: since Apple doesn't allow 3rd party apps to be installed on their devices, we recommend all our iOS users to use a desktop PC for this procedure. 

After you've uninstalled the current version of the app and installed the older one, you can get your YEC private key. 

  1. Launch the older version of the app and go to 'Settings', and select the 'Private Keys' tab;
  2. Enter your password, and click on the 'SHOW PRIVATE KEYS' button;
  3. Type 'YEC' in the search, and click to copy your YEC private key;

A note regarding different versions of Atomic Wallet 

After you have done everything and got your YEC into Guarda, you will want to reinstall the current version of Atomic Wallet, there's no need to keep the old one. However, simply updating to a newer version may not be the best course of action since it might have some issues with the stability and performance of the app if you go this route. We recommend completely uninstalling Atomic Wallet once again and then making a clean installation. After the current version of the app has been installed, simply restore your wallet using your 12-word phrase.
