I've an old BIP-38 paper wallet, and I imported that address into an Electrum (version 3.3.6) watch-only wallet.
I now want to transfer that BTC to an Exchange. I have the relevant password for the Electrum wallet and private key for the paper wallet and I've checked on a block explorer that the balance at that address is correct and it is.
Question: How do I spend from that Electrum watch-only wallet?
If I open Electum I'm only given an Export option (and from there select amount, select fee, preview, copy display where I end up with a type of report on amount sent, size of transaction, fee, locktime, inputs and outputs
I followed this option, but nothing is happening. Btc is still at my address and not at the Exchange's address and its been a while and the fee was set to max.
Where to from here? Any advice?
(PS: I see advice here to sweep the paper wallet address into the Electum wallet but I understand that would incur a transaction fee, and seeings that I'm going to send that BTC to an Exchange and that transaction would also cost fees - so I don't want to go that route :) )
