Login and access the crypto wallet where you store your funds. Enter your password.

Step 2

Click the “Send” button to send your desired amount.

Step 3

Input the public address of your recipient. Always double-check and ensure you are entering the correct public address; otherwise, the amount might get lost or sent to the wrong person.

Make sure that all the information indicated is correct. After double-checking, click the “Confirm” button to proceed with your transaction.

To avoid sending an incorrect transaction, 

  1. Make sure you have the correct address. Verify and double-check as much as possible.
  2. Make sure you're sending exactly the amount you intended to. Before sending, double-check the amount to be certain.
  3. Verify that you are transferring the correct cryptocurrency to the receiver.

Remember to take extra careful measures when sending crypto to another address. To give yourself more confidence that you are performing the steps correctly, look up the FAQ of the wallet you are using to confirm you have the processes down.
