How do I set up my Trezor for Monero in Exodus?
Monero (XMR) is only supported in Trezor Model T.
- To start using Monero with your Trezor Model T in Exodus, you must ensure your Trezor has been set up. You can use the guides below for help setting up and connecting your Trezor with Exodus:
While pairing your Trezor Model T with Exodus, you will be asked to confirm that you want to export your watch-only credentials. Without these permissions, your Exodus wallet won't be able to reflect your Trezor Model T Monero balance or transaction history.
Monero is a privacy crypto, so blockchain data (like the XMR balance at your address) is not publicly viewable. For Exodus to read and show the XMR balance held in your Trezor, Exodus will need the private view key, which you enable by exporting your watch-only credentials. To learn more about private view keys, visit: What are the different Monero key types?
Tap the green checkmark on your Trezor Model T device's touchscreen to continue. Your Trezor will now begin pairing.
In the future, you will only be asked to export your watch-only credentials if you delete your Trezor portfolio. After connecting to your Trezor Monero wallet for the first time, Exodus will remember your Trezor Monero wallet, so you can always view your Monero balance, even when your Trezor isn't connected.
You can switch to your Trezor Monero portfolio to send, receive, and swap Monero. Your Trezor Monero wallet will have the label Hardware Wallet.
For more information on changing portfolios, see our guide: How do I switch between my hardware wallet and Exodus portfolios?
After pairing, your XMR balance must be synced from the Monero blockchain before it will reflect in your Exodus Trezor portfolio. Click Sync to start syncing your wallet. Auto-sync will be enabled if an XMR balance is detected and should remain on to ensure your wallet stays in sync with the blockchain.

- In Exodus, you will be prompted to Confirm Refresh on your Trezor device.
- Tap the green checkmark on your Trezor touchscreen to continue.
Is sending or swapping Monero different from the Exodus and Trezor integration?
Sending Monero from your Trezor is very similar to sending other crypto. The major difference is that sending Monero from your Trezor will prompt you to export the transaction key. You can learn more here: What are the different Monero key types?
Here is a step-by-step guide on how to send and swap Monero from your Trezor.
When you send or swap Monero using your Trezor portfolio, you will be prompted to confirm the transaction on your Trezor Model T.
Tap Continue to confirm the Sending To address is correct.
Next, review the transaction fee. To send the transaction, press and hold the Hold to confirm button on your Trezor screen.
- Finally, you will be asked to export your transaction key ( tx_key). The transaction key is used to prove that a transaction was made on the Monero blockchain. Confirm by tapping the green checkmark on your Trezor's touchscreen.
Monero is a privacy crypto, so blockchain data (like the XMR balance at your address) is not publicly viewable. For Exodus to successfully send the Monero balance held in your Trezor, you will need to export the transaction key. To learn more about transaction keys, visit: What are the different Monero key types?
Can I use multiple addresses with the Exodus Trezor integration?
Monero subaddresses allow you to receive Monero to a different address each time. At the moment, you can't use multiple addresses in your Trezor portfolio. However, you can still use multiple addresses in your Exodus portfolio.
Learn more about how to use multiple addresses in your Exodus portfolio.
Can I view my Monero balance from Exodus Mobile?
Yes, it's possible to view your Monero (XMR) balance from Exodus Mobile. You can view all your other Trezor assets on Mobile as well.
For more information, you can visit: Trezor on Exodus Mobile.
Can I use a Monero custom node with the Exodus and Trezor integration?
Yes, you can use a custom node with your Trezor Monero wallet.
Currently, it is not possible to use separate custom nodes for your Exodus and Trezor Monero portfolios. If you change your custom node for your Trezor Monero portfolio, this will automatically also change the custom node used by your Exodus Monero portfolio.
You can follow our guide for help in setting up a custom Monero node.
Additionally, you can't set a block height in your Trezor Monero wallet that is different from the block height in your Exodus Monero wallet.
