You may navigate to the Exchange page from the Portfolio Dashboard by clicking on the tab located in the upper left corner of ARKVault. Here you may choose to exchange cryptoassets using ChangeNOW or Changelly .
Clicking on ChangeNOW brings up a modal that allows you to select a cryptoasset as well as an amount to send.

Finally, enter the address of the recipient wallet in the Recipient Wallet field, ensuring that it matches the selected cryptoasset type. When ready, click the Continue button to process the conversion. Alternatively, if you wish to cancel the exchange or use another provider, click the Back button.
Clicking on Changelly brings up the exact same modal with precisely the same fields. As before, fill in the necessary details, ensuring everything is correct and matches your selected cryptoasset type. When ready, click on Continue. Again, if you wish to cancel the exchange for whatever reason, simply click the Back button.
Once you have made an exchange, it will appear under Transactions on the Exchange page. Here you can review any completed exchange transactions as well as the relevant details of each should you ever require the information in the future.
