How to Transfer NEO from Bittrex to NEO wallet

Guys, I have been holding NEO from the time it was known as ANTShares. They have now rebranded themselves to NEO.

And I have to admit that I was too lazy to send my NEO coins to the NEO wallet.

Now, I should have done this a long back but I do not know why I never cared.

Not that I did not try, but I was not getting any proper guide to transfer NEO from BITTREX to the NEO wallet. Plus, I did not want to get scammed by downloading a fake NEO wallet from Github or any other source.

Coming back to the point, just two days back, I transferred 80 percent of my NEO coins from the exchange (read BITTREX) to my NEO wallet.

I am now thrilled to see my NEO wallet generating free GAS every day.

Hence, I thought to write this guide for you.

If you are like me and you hold NEO in your BITTREX account, you should shift your coins immediately to the official NEO wallet and this guide should help you do that.

If you are still lazy, let me give you some reasons why you should move your coins from BITTREX to NEO wallet.

In case, you do not hold any NEO coin, here is a guide that will help you buy NEO coins from Bittrex: Read NOW

Why should you move your NEO from Bittrex to NEO wallet?

  1. Security – Security is the most important reason you should shift all your NEO coins to a wallet or a cold storage (with no access to internet). It can be a hardware wallet or the official NEO wallet.
  2. GAS – Not sure what GAS is? And how are NEO and GAS related? I will explain it some other time. However, for now, just know that if you keep your NEO coins in the official NEO wallet, it will generate free GAS for you.

Just a month back, the price of each GAS was very less (not even a dollar). And now, as I write, it is priced at 33.84 USD. You can check the current price by clicking here.

The price of GAS blooming to 33 USD is one of the reasons why I shifted my NEO to the official NEO wallet.

It already generated 0.087 GAS for me.

I should have done this a long back, but as said, it is always better to be late than never.

I strongly recommend you to do it now. It will not take you more than 3 minutes.

Now, let’s discuss, how you can transfer your NEO from Bittrex exchange to the official wallet.

  1. Go to and download the NEON wallet (Bottom RIGHT). Note down the private key. DO NOT DOWNLOAD FROM ANYWHERE ELSE. YOU MAY GET SCAMMED.

5. Click on the NEW wallet. As soon as you do that, it will show you your private key and a public key.

6. Note down the private key. Take a screenshot and print the screen on a paper and do not save it on your desktop.

7. Make 2-3 copies of the paper and store them in different places so that you do not lose it.

8. Now, copy the public address. Go to Bittrex and send NEO to your new public address (i.e. the public address of your NEO wallet). While sending, please keep in mind that if you want to send 50 NEO, Send 50.1 (0.1 is the transaction fee, at present). It may change. So keep an eye on the transaction fee. Just make sure the amount of NEO you get in your wallet should be a natural number.

Would you be interested in knowing how much GAS can your NEO coins generate?

How many GAS can my NEO coins generate?

Okay, let’s do some quick maths.

1 NEO takes 20 years to generate 1 GAS.

So if you hold 1000 NEO, it will take 20 years to generate 1000 GAS. Or, in other words, you will be generating 50 GAS every year.

If the price of 1 GAS is 33 USD, just imagine the price of each GAS to be after 1 year.

Even if the cost of 1 GAS touches 100 USD, you will be making 100*50= 5000USD every year for free. Just like dividends. Cool, no? Hurry up, and transfer your NEO to the NEO wallet now and keep claiming free GAS.
