Back on the webpage, click the Return to Bitrue button, and you’ll see the order confirmation.
While we wait for the BTC to arrive, we'll add the pairings we plan to use to our favorites by starring them. Click on the USDT and then in the search window above.

We've bought SFX and now we need to withdraw them from the exchange, so we can use them.
To withdraw coins you need to have a Safex address, so the next step is installation of Safex TWM Wallet.
3.1 Install Safex TWM Wallet
For those of you who haven't yet got the TWM wallet installed, go to Safex.org and download the install file for your PC. Here, we will demonstrate the Windows installation.
Click to download, and once on your PC, run the install file. If you get a Windows warning, click on more info and select Run Anyway. This will install the TWM wallet and run it automatically.

Click continue on next popup. Set the connection with the default Daemon host, then continue to set your wallet password.
The longer the password, the more secure your wallet files. Click set password, and now we're ready to create your new Safex Wallet.
The first thing to appear is a popup window containing your Safex address, private keys, and the mnemonic seed.
It is critical that you immediately backup this information in a secure location.
