##How to Import Funds from Bitcoin Address using private key (privkey)
- Login to Counterwallet with Private Key from another address handy.
- In the top left corner, go to
Import Funds > Import (Sweep) Tokens from Another Address.
- Enter Private Key and allow Counterwallet to issue a Send transaction from the address associated with the Private Key to your Counterwallet you selected. This Send transaction is done automatically.
- You can then log off if you wish. It will take 3 confirmations for the transaction to be recognized by Counterwallet. The source address will retain a dust amount of BTC (0.000178).
NOTE: Blockchain info now has other types of wallets for which the import works differently and so do some other wallets. See here for additional information.
##Example: Importing Address Holdings from old-style Blockchain.info wallet

privvalue (private key from your Blockchain.info address) under
Private Key to Import.
In case after these steps nothing happens, repeat the two previous steps and wait patiently.
Notice how you can select which tokens to sweep. In our case the wallet had only one type (BTC), but if the address had multiple tokens you could - assuming you had enough BTC for multiple transactions - first sweep non-BTC tokens (each to a different Counterwallet address) and last sweep the remaining BTC.
- After you click on
Sweep, Counterwallet will make a transaction that will move its selected contents (in our example 0.04 BTC) to our Countewallet address labeled
You will receive a notification that the transaction has been broadcast and after 3 confirmations your address will receive the funds.
Approximately 20 minutes later (time depends on the Bitcoin network), the sweeped tokens will appear at the target address (in your Counterwallet).
