I have used an address generated by Exodus wallet. whats happened is that my bitcoin confirmed but didn't receive any thing on Exodus wallet. I want now to import private key in another wallet. but when I export private key in Exodus wallet so there is no private key for the address I have used. the private keys only for new generated adresses. any one have got through such thing ?? any one have an idea how to get private key for used address ? it looks like that I had to export private key for the address before I use it. because it looks like that the private key disappear with the address after using ? is that true ? any explanation ?

  • Have you tried the export Private Keys feature? Is explicitly stated "The Export Private Keys feature will export all of your private keys" – Chak Dec 22 '17 at 19:53
  • I tried but this is my point the address doesn't exist so the private key also. private keys there are only for the new generated addresses. you know after I used the address to receive my bitcoin, the wallet generated a new address, this address I can export its private key, but not the one I used. the wallet does not show me the address I used or its transaction or its private key. its just disappear and new addresses become generated. – Hussein Albirouti Dec 22 '17 at 23:59
  • You can try to import your Exodus 12-word phrase into Electrum. All private keys derived from your 12-word phrase and related transactions should show up. If you have used more than 20 addresses, you will need to increase something called the gap_limit in Electrum to show beyond the first 20 public addresses. – Chak Dec 23 '17 at 0:51
  • I am confused now. I import it into electrum but can't see the transaction also. – Hussein Albirouti Dec 23 '17 at 3:04
  • this is what I did.. I tok the address from Exodus and I used it into cex.io I receive confirmation from cex.io and it confirmed in the blockchain but didn't receive any thing in Exodus and there is no private key or something related to this transaction in Exodus. is there any way to know that this address belong to Exodus wallet, because I am confused now. – Hussein Albirouti Dec 23 '17 at 3:11
