Ripple have published some information about the format of a valid address on the XRP Ledger:—



Accounts in the XRP Ledger are identified by an address in the XRP Ledger's base58 format. The address is derived from the account's master public key , which is in turn derived from a secret key. An address is represented as a string in JSON and has the following characteristics:

  • Between 25 and 35 characters in length
  • Starts with the character r
  • Uses alphanumeric characters, excluding the number "0" capital letter "O", capital letter "I", and lowercase letter "l"
  • Case-sensitive
  • Includes a 4-byte checksum so that the probability of generating a valid address from random characters is approximately 1 in 2^32


If you're trying to paste an address that doesn't conform to the above specification, it's not going to work!

So how do I find the correct information to input on the Toast Wallet?

Can you describe the receiving address that your Exodus app is telling you to use? As per the above quote,

  • How many characters does it have?
  • Does it start with the letter “r”?

Also in the above quote, it says not all strings are valid addresses. You might therefore want to test the validity of the your Exodus app's receiving address by pasting it into an XRPL explorer web site such as Bithomp (but don't accidentally paste your private key or family secret!).

If the XRP ‘receiving address’ in your Exodus app is not a valid XRPL address, you'll have to report it as a bug to Exodus.

Changing the subject slightly, it's useful to remind yourself that your XRPs are not ‘stored’ in either wallet. XRPs exist only on the XRP Ledger (a distributed ledger maintained on multiple computers around the world). Toast and Exodus are private key management tools that do three things:

  1. Store your private keys
  2. Draw up transactions & add cryptographic signatures to them using your private keys (like writing a cheque & signing it, but much more secure)
  3. Broadcast your signed transactions over the internet (like putting a cheque in the post)

(They also let you view your balance, but that's no big deal since your XRP balance is in the public domain already, visible at XRPL explorer web sites.)
