    First, decide which crypto you want to buy, such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc. We recommend you buy Litecoin (also called LTC) for lower transaction fees.

    Launch Exodus and find which crypto you want. If you can’t find it, click the search bar in the top left and type in the one you want. Then click on “Receive.” It will look like the image below, simply copy the address when you need it.

    Paste in your wallet address from the previous step when needed. (Don’t use the one shown in the image, make sure to use yours)

    After waiting a little bit, you should see the crypto you bought from MoonPay in your wallet.

    Step 4: Send Crypto

    Now that you have some crypto in your wallet, you can use it to buy things online. Simply get the person or store’s wallet address, open your wallet, find the crypto you want to use for the purchase, click on “Send,” paste in their address and type in the amount you wish to send them.
