Transfer tokens from to MyEtherWallet (MEW) wallet

It’s always suggested to transfer tokens to a new wallet that supports ERC20 tokens. MyEtherWallet (aka MEW) is an ERC20-compliant wallet and you can hold any ERC20 tokens there.


In this tutorial, I will cover how to transfer tokens from to MyEtherWallet.  I used Hacken Token (HKN) as example and wrote this tutorial for newbies.

2. Navigate to BALANCES tab and click on the Withdraw icon on the right of the token.


3. You will get two inputs fields. Type your Etherium address in the recipient field and the amount you want to withdraw in the amount field. Click on CONFIRM and you are done. Orderbook charged me 2 HKN fees for withdrawing HKN tokens. For different tokens, fees could be different.

5. You will receive a verification code through your email/phone.  A pop-up will come for the final withdraw confirmation, you will have to type verification code as below and then click on CONFIRM.
