How to send or receive crypto using Coinbase Wallet

Coinbase Wallet helps you unlock one of the most significant features of crypto: the ability to send or receive peer-to-peer transfers without any financial intermediaries. 

Doing so with your Coinbase Wallet is simple.

Coinbase Wallet supports thousands of coins on a number of blockchains, including Ethereum, Polygon, Avalanche, BNB Chain and Stellar Lumens. You can send or receive crypto from both the mobile app and web browser extension. 

Sending funds

From the Coinbase Wallet home screen, select Send. You’ll be prompted to select the asset you’d like to use and to choose a desired amount. Ensure that you have the correct wallet address for your recipient—funds could be lost if they are sent to the wrong address. 

Additionally, you can send funds based on the Ethereum network to a user’s Ethereum Name Service address, and you can send funds to another Coinbase Wallet user by using their Coinbase Wallet username.

Receiving funds

From the Coinbase Wallet home screen, select Receive, and then select the coin you’d like to receive. You’ll be shown a QR code with your unique wallet address directly below it. You can share that address with the sender, or if they’re using Coinbase Wallet, you can share your Wallet username.
