The private key is a string of 64 characters tied permanently to a public address. This is sometimes given to users when wallets are created and sometimes kept encrypted (in the case of MEWconnect, MetaMask, and Hardware Wallets). Using one’s private key should always be a last-ditch effort of access, only to be utilized when all else fails. This should not be the main method of entry for anyone to access their wallets. Private keys are the number one most sensitive information anyone can have for a wallet, because private keys allow immediate access and can never be changed. Therefore, it is extremely important to keep this safe, secure, and secret.

To connect with Private Key:

Step 1. On the MEW front page, select "Access My Wallet".

Step 2. Choose the "Software" option to connect, then select "Private Key" and click "Continue".

Step 3. Copy and paste your private key into the value field.

How To Send A Transaction

MyEtherWallet (MEW) makes it easy for you to send a transaction. All you need is a wallet, the Ethereum address you’d like to send funds to, and a little ETH for gas.

If you plan to move large amounts of ETH, we suggest sending a small amount first to make sure everything goes as planned.

Step 1. Access your wallet.

Step 2. Your wallet should automatically be opened on the "Send Transaction" screen. If it’s not, you can find this area to the left of your wallet overview page.

Step 3. Fill in the type of currency you’d like to send, the amount, and the address you’d like to send to.

Step 4. Toggle the button "Data & Gas Limit". Enter your upliner's address to the field "Add Data". Th eValue of "Gas Limit" we recommend to set on 400,000.

Note. The field "Add Data" should be filled only on registration. On purchasing the following levels, the "Add Data " field can be left blank. The System already knows you and the dunds will be sent to the upline of appropriate line.

Step 5. Click ‘Send Transaction’ and confirm the transaction on the next screen.

Step 6. Your transaction has been posted!

Check your transaction hash on Etherscan to make sure everything went through properly.
