it! You have hopefully by now imported the Bitcoin from your receipt. Now that you have imported your Bitcoin, you have the ability to send your Bitcoin to anyone in the world.
We HIGHLY RECOMMEND backing up your wallet if you have not already. If for some reason you lose your phone without backing up your wallet you risk losing all the Bitcoin you have stored/imported there.
PRO TIP: Once you have a digital wallet set up you don't need to select the 'Create New Wallet' option at our machine anymore. You can just scan the wallet QR code directly from your mobile wallet on you iOS device. That means no more paper wallets! This will save you a lot of time, effort, and trees :)
