I have too little funds in MyMonero. Is there a way I can sweep those funds into another wallet?

I'm guessing I tried doing this once before, but it didn't like me sending all because it wanted some for fees. I'm really not sure.

You cannot transfer to another wallet with different address without a transfer fee. However, if you want to use a CLI or GUI wallet you can do so.

If using a GUI follow this guide:

How do I use my MyMonero wallet via the Monero Core GUI?

or using a CLI:

If I saved my view key and spend key can I recover my wallet if my mnemonic seed is lost?

FYI. Transfer fee has decreased since the last hard forked in April 15.

  • Alright, understanding the "monero bank" conceptually is like learning how git works for the first time. I don't need to "transfer" all funds from My Monero. I own the address and keys, which means I can view/spend funds connected to them in any wallet any time. I just happened to be viewing the cumulative transactions on My Monero. Now, I am viewing them in CLI. The phrase "backing up" is almost meaningless; it's already backed up in the blockchain. We're merely "viewing our part/account" with the address and keys. Awesome, thank you.

  • Your correct. In the future, if your monero/xmr accumulates to a large sum it is a good practice to put them on a different wallet address(cold wallet) from your a light wallet such as MyMonero. Take caution also of using other wallets that don't provide you with a private key. Commented Apr 21, 2017 at 23:53
