Where can I send XCP?


I’ve purchased some xcp via poloniex and am now looking for long-term storage options but counterwallet seems to only output BTC addresses (unless I’m mistaken). Can someone please explain what I’m missing (maybe its really obvious, but I can’t find a simple explanation anywhere).


Hi @icarus,

Bitcoin addresses can hold XCP and any Counterparty-based asset, so you can send XCP to your CW address:

You don’t need to “backup” your private keys (but you can if you want) because you can generate them from the pass phrase using a utility as explained here:

There’s a way to use Armory with Counterwallet so that you can keep the bulk of your coins offline.
