How To Send HBARs From Bittrex Global To A Private Hedera Hashgraph Account

In this article I will show you how to Open a Bittrex Global account, procure Hedera Hashgraph HBARs, and transfer them to a private account in order to provide fuel to operate your newly developed DAPPs.

  1. In your web browser’s address bar, navigate to https://global.bittrex.com/
  2. Click the “Sign Up” button

3. Enter the email you would like to use as your login and choose a secure password. (Note: To quickly generate unique and secure passwords use a password generator such as the ones found in Last Pass or Bitwarden.)

4. Click the “Create Account” button.

5. If a CATCHPA pops up, follow the instructions and click the “Verify” button:

6. A screen will appear asking you to verify your email address. In a separate window, open your email account and find the verification email sent by Bittrex:

7. Click on the “Verify Email” button in the body of the email:

8. You will be brought back to the Bittrex account creation page. Fill out all required personal details and click the “Continue” button at the bottom of the page:

9. You will be prompted to start the ID verification process. Click the “Start Verification” button:

10. Select your issuing country and preferred ID type:

11. You will then be prompted to take a photo of your identification or upload a previously taken photo. (Note: from a desktop computer, uploading a pre-taken photo will be necessary unless you have a webcam.)

12. Both the front and the back of your ID will need to be photographed and uploaded:

13. Next, upload a Selfie (either by taking a photo or uploading a pre-taken one):

14. If your personal information, ID uploads, and selfies are verified, you will be taken to your newly created Bittrex account. From here, find your preferred HBAR pairing. (Bittrex offers the following pairs: USD-HBAR, BTC-HBAR, ETH-HBAR and USDT-HBAR) For the purposes of this guide we will be using the USD-HBAR pair:

15. A trading screen for the HBAR pair you have selected will open. You will need to deposit funds in the form of your chosen trading pair if you do not already have any available in your account. Click the “Deposit” link:

16. For USD Funds you will need to have a bank account configured in order to deposit funds. For cryptocurrency pairs of Bitcoin, Ether, or Tether you can immediately transfer funds into your account. An address for you to deposit your funds to will be provided when you click the deposit link. This address is unique to your specific Bittrex account. This is a nice added benefit to using the Bittrex platform which eliminates the chance that your funds are misplaced by the exchange — provided you have entered the correct address when transferring your funds to Bittrex, ALWAYS DOUBLE CHECK!.

17. After successfully funding your account, you will see your available balance on the screen here:

18. In order to place a buy order you will need to fill out the price you are willing to purchase HBARs for using your pair of choice as well as the quantity you are hoping to acquire:

(Note: you can see the prices and quantities that other users are willing to
(Note: you can see the prices and quantities that other users are willing to BUY HBARs for to the left in green and SELL HBARs for to the right in red.)

19. When you are ready to place your order click the green “Buy HBAR” button:

20. An order confirmation window will appear. Verify all the details are correct first and then click the “Confirm Limit Buy” button when you are ready to place your order:

21. If your order was successful, you will see a confirmation in the bottom right hand corner of your screen:

(Note: If you do not see this confirmation immediately after placing your order, it most likely means the order has gone unfilled; usually due to price fluctuations. However, you’re order is still active! At this point you may either elect to leave your order as is until it gets filled (hopefully!) or you will need to scroll down the page further to your open orders list and cancel it. Once cancelled you can re-try placing an order at the appropriate cost. Also, be sure to check that your order was completely filled. Partial order fills can occur!)

22. Once you have successfully completed your order, it’s time to transfer the HBARs from your Bittrex account to your private Hedera Hashgraph account(s). Click on the holdings heading in the top right corner of the screen:

23. On the holdings screen navigate to your HBAR line item and on the right hand side of the screen, click the “Withdraw” link:

24. A pop up window will ask you the following: 1.) If you would like to provide a memo for the recipient, 2.) the Hedera Hashgraph account address where the HBARs are going to, and 3.) the quantity of HBARs you will be transferring. You can elect to not send a memo to the recipient, however, you must enter a Hedera Hashgraph account ID and the amount of HBARs you want to send. (Note: ALWAYS double check you have the correct account ID! Neither Bittrex, nor Hedera will be able to help you in recovering lost HBARs that have been sent to an incorrect account!)

25. When you have double (triple) checked all of your info, click the blue “Withdraw HBAR” button:

26. If you have set up two-factor authentication account security (If you haven’t already, I strongly recommend doing so), a confirmation window will pop up asking for your two-factor authenticator code; enter it and once again click the blue “Withdraw HBAR” button:

27. Depending on if you transfer all of your HBARs from Bittrex to your private Hedera Hashgraph account(s) the HBAR line item on the holdings page will disappear from the top of the list or altogether. Otherwise, it will show the balance of your HBARs still available on Bittrex:

28. The final step in the process is to confirm receipt of the HBARs in your private account(s). For the purposes of this guide we are using the official Hedera Mobile Wallet. Click the refresh balance button in the top right corner of the screen:

29. The wallet will then take a moment to update your account balance:

30. Your account balance should be updated, showing the transfer you just made from your Bittrex account:

And that’s it! You have successfully opened a Bittrex Global account, purchased HBARs, and successfully transferred them to your private Hedera Hashgraph account(s) in order to run your DAPP(s) on the Hedera mainnet!

One final note, this process can be completed in the opposite direction should you need to convert HBARs to another paired currency. To send HBARs to your Bittrex account to convert, navigate back to your Bittrex account click on the pairing you would like to use; the same way as you did in step 14. Once in the trading window this time select the sell button (1), click on the deposit link (2), you will then be prompted with your unique Hedera account ID on Bittrex (3) for transferring HBARs to:

I hope you have enjoyed this guide to transferring HBARs to and from a Bittrex account to your private Hedera Account(s).

How To Create Hedera Hashgraph Mainnet Account(s)

There are a number of ways in which you can create an account(s) on the Hedera Hashgraph Mainnet. In this article, I will walk you through the steps required for each. 

Method One: Create an account using Hashing Systems composer Chrome Extension:

The quickest, easiest way to create an account on the Hedera Hashgraph Mainnet is to use Hashing Systems’ Composer Chrome Extension:

1. From your Desktop/Laptop, download and install Hashing Systems Composer extension from the Chrome Web Store:

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/composer-for-hedera-hashg/hdjnnemgikeoehneddegfcmkljenlean

2. When prompted, click add extension: 

3. Once installed, you should see the composer icon in the extension tray in the top right corner of the screen, left click on it:

4. Before proceeding you will be prompted to create a password to be able to open the composer extension during future uses. Create a login password for your instance of Composer and store it in a safe place.

5. Next you will be prompted with the getting started screen. Check all of the boxes and then click create new account:

6. You will be prompted with a separate “Account Begin” window. Check all the boxes again and click the LOGIN WITH GOOGLE button:

7. Select The Google Account you would like to use for the account creation process:

8. You will then be prompted with a 24 word Mnemonic passphrase. By left clicking on the phrase it is automatically copied to your clipboard to either print or store by other means. This passphrase allows access to your account so it is highly recommended that you store it in a secure location using best practices for maintaining sensitive data. Once you have secured the phrase click the proceed button: 

9. You will then be asked to enter three words in the sequence of 24 to confirm the accounts creation: 

10. An Account Overview page will open if you successfully entered the proper words from the Mnemonic passphrase. You can click on the user outline in the top right corner of the screen to see your newly created account ID number. Save this number with your Mnemonic passphrase as you will need your account ID to recover your account if the need ever arises and more importantly to send and receive transactions to your account. The account number is in the following format 0.0.00000:

Method Two: Create an account using the official Hedera Wallet:

1. Download the Hedera Hashgraph Official Wallet app on to your phone:

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hedera.wallet&hl=en_CA

IOS: https://apps.apple.com/ca/app/hedera-wallet/id1442631626

 

2. Open the Wallet app and click the menu button in the top right corner of the screen:

3. Click Default Account:

4. Scroll down the page to find your public key and click the copy button:

5. Provide your public key to someone with an active account on the Hedera Hashgraph Mainnet. The following community-run Hedera Hashgraph Telegram or Discord Channels work well:

  1. https://t.me/hashgraph
  2. https://t.me/hbarprice
  3. https://t.me/hashhashstats
  4. https://t.me/dragonglasscommunity
  5. https://t.me/earthtile
  6. https://t.me/MyEarthID

Note: You can reach me directly to help with this step on Telegram at @CON5EN5U5 if no one else is available

6. Whomever you enlist to assist you with generating your Hedera Hashgraph account number will take your public key and click the create account button in the settings menu of the Hedera Wallet app:

Note: The cost to create your account on the Hedera Hashgraph Mainnet is half (.5) an HBAR. Please consider reimbursing the person assisting you in creating your account as they will be the ones funding your accounts generation.. 

 

7. After paying the .5 HBAR fee and hitting the create account button, your facilitator will be promoted with your new unique Hashgraph account number. Currently the sequencing of this number will look like 0.0.xxxxx. 

Note: In the future when additional Shards and Realms are created, the zeros of this account number may change depending on which shard or realm newly created accounts fall under.

8. After receiving your newly created Hedera account number from you facilitator, navigate back into the settings menu of your Hedera wallet app and click on Default Account once again. 

9. Input your account number in the Account ID field and exit the settings menu:

10. Tap the refresh button in the top right corner of the Hedera Wallet. At this point your wallet should be fully paired with your public and private keys and can now receive/send HBARs:

 

11. Lastly, follow best practices and head back into your settings menu and click on Recovery Phrase in the security section of the settings menu, copy your accounts 24 word Mnemonic phrase and store it in a safe and secure location(s): 

Method Three: Create an account using the Myhbarwallet App:

1. Navigate to MyHbarWallet.com - https://myhbarwallet.com/

2. Click Create new account:

3. Click Software (Hardware coming soon according to the website):

   

4. To create your account click on either the Keystore File or Mnemonic Phrase. For the purposes of this guide we will use the Mnemonic Phrase. Click on the Mnemonic Phrase and then click continue:

5. Like in the Hedera Wallet account creation process from Method 2, copy your Mnemonic Phrase that is provided and store it in a safe place; or several safe places :) (also be sure to double check the spelling and order of all your words! There should be 24 words in total.) There is an option to print as well. Once you have copies your phrase, click the I Wrote Down My Mnemonic Phrase:

    

6. The system will then prompt you to fill in missing words from the Mnemonic Phrase you copied/printed - just like in Method One. Fill in the blanks and click verify:

7. You will then be provided with a copy of your public key (the same kind of key you found in step 3/4 of Method 2) and prompted to provide either the character string or QR code to an existing Hedera account owner. (Follow steps 5-7 from Method 2.)

8. Once you have received your account ID from the existing account owner click on “I have an Account ID”, enter the account ID in the Account ID field and click continue. 

9. You have successfully created an account on the Hedera Mainnet. You will see your MyHbarWallet dashboard. Here you can see your balance and send/receive HBARs:

 

Method Four: Creating an account yourself using the Telegram “myhbarbot”:

This method requires that you have already completed all required steps up to and including copying your public key from any of the previous methods. The method allows you to successfully create an account without the assistance of another human party. 

1. Download the telegram app:

IOS: https://apps.apple.com/ca/app/telegram-messenger/id686449807

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.telegram.messenger&hl=en_CA

2. Open the app and search for: @MyhbarBot

3. Click Account Creator:

4. Enter the public key you received in any of the previous methods into the text field and hit send. The bot will return a new account ID for you to use:

5. Follow the prompts to reimburse the bot account for the network transaction fee that was incurred to create your account (note: consider reimbursing your facilitators from Methods 2 and 3 from above as well. Pay it forward!) 

Method Five: Create Additional Accounts using Hashing Systems Composer Extension:

Hashing Systems composer is again the easiest way to create additional accounts for yourself or others on the Hashgraph Mainnet. Note: you will be required to have a sufficient balance of HBARs in your Mainnet account (0.5 HBARs per account) to cover the new account creation(s).

1. Again click the composer icon in the top left corner of Chrome:

2. You will be prompted to enter you password to open the extension. Enter it and click proceed.

3. From the account overview dashboard click the user icon:

4. Click Add New Account:

5. Follow steps 4-9 of Method One as many times as needed to create a sufficient number of accounts for your use case. 

Method Six: Create Additional Accounts Yourself Using Two Phones and Two Official Hedera Wallet Apps:

Once you have created an account using methods 1-4, you can create additional accounts for yourself or others. This method is far more convoluted than using Hashing Systems composer so if you can avoid using it you probably should. It requires you have access to two phones that are able to install the official Hedera Wallet app and you will also need to have a sufficient balance of HBARs in the account that is creating the new account(s) in order to cover the network cost of account creation; 0.5 HBARs per new account created.

1. From phone 1, (Phone 1 is the phone that does not have an account paired to the Hedera Wallet app yet) open the Hedera wallet app and follow steps 2-4 from Method 2.

2. Text the public key from phone 1 to phone 2 if you have cell reception on both phones or into an email to yourself to send from phone 1 to phone 2 over Wifi.

3. From phone 2, (Phone 2 is the phone that already has an account fully created, synced to the Mainnet on the Hedera Wallet app, and has an adequate balance of HBARs available) copy the public key from the email you just sent yourself.

4. Open the menu in the top right corner of the screen:

4. Click create new account:

5. Paste the public key that you just copied from the email into the public key field and click create account.

6. If successful the network will deduct 0.5 HBARs from you account and return to you a new Account ID

7. On phone 1 follow steps 8-10 from Method One. You have now created a new account yourself without external help from another account holder or bot. 

8. To create additional accounts, safely store the newly created account ID, Public Key and Mnemonic Passphrase from phone 1 and uninstall / reinstall the Hedera Wallet app. 

9. Repeat steps 1-8  

Note: Steps 3-7 provide you with the necessary information to become an account creation facilitator for others as well if they were ever to ask for their help. 

By now if you’ve made it this far you should have a fairly in-depth understanding of how to create new accounts on the Hedera Hasphgraph Mainnet using a variety of methods. 

If there are any other ways in which you can create a new account(s) on the Hedera Hashgraph Mainnet that I’ve missed or you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me on Telegram; @CON5EN5U5
