I bought ETH from a BTC exchange and it went through ShapeShift. I sent them a wallet address. It has been too long and I don't know the wallet provider I used. The ETH is good on Etherscan. How do I move it to a wallet like MEW? TYIA

    Hi there. Just to confirm - do you have the private key associated with the address, perhaps downloaded from whatever wallet you initially used? – Richard Horrocks Jul 4 '17 at 20:08
  • Yes. I do. The problem is that I believe the exchange was BTC-e. My email at the time was gmail & was deleted by me so I cannot access that account by that email. Waiting for an answer from them. My private key appears to be for ETC before the split but I assume it will work for both coins. Reading these forums: do I somehow download Geth to a Mac: and move it into the ethereum wallet from there? Thanks so much! – gigi Jul 5 '17 at 21:25
