Things to take note of when sending crypto from another wallet
Make sure you’re sending tokens to the right network
Before sending any crypto from another exchange or wallet, you should always check the supported network of your receiving wallet, to make sure your tokens end up where you want them to.
Sending tokens to the wrong network could result in the loss of your crypto holdings.
If you were to send BEP20 tokens to a wallet that only supports the ERC20 standard, your tokens may not be accessible by the receiving party, even though the transaction may reflect a successful transfer. While the address format for BEP20 and ERC20 are the same, they operate on completely separate blockchains.
What are token standards?
ERC20 (Ethereum Request For Comment 20) is the token standard for the Ethereum blockchain. The token standard serves as a set of rules which define the way tokens are issued, transferred, approved, and accessed. We support the ERC20 token standard and use it to facilitate exchanges between ERC20 tokens and other cryptocurrencies on our platform.
Check your crypto address
Would you make a bank transfer without double-checking that it’s going to the right account? Probably not.
It always pays to be extra careful — double (or triple) check your recipient’s address before sending any crypto.
Blockchain transactions are irreversible, so once your transaction gets approved, the chances of retrieving funds from an erroneous transaction are extremely slim!
Check network traffic
Much like how a car stuck in a traffic jam will reach its destination later, high network traffic will slow down the speed at which crypto transactions are processed. For Ethereum transactions, gas fees also surge when network traffic peaks.
Crypto transactions, especially for Bitcoin, can be delayed due to a variety of reasons, including network congestion, lack of hash power, fewer miners, or even platform requirements.
You can check network traffic here for Ethereum and here for Bitcoin, before proceeding with your crypto transactions.
