What is my address and a memo?

All crypto orders have to be sent to an address for delivery.

You will find your address inside your crypto wallet.

Wallets come in various shapes and sizes and range from moderately safe to virtually bulletproof and it is your choice where you would like to store your crypto.

When you create a wallet you generate a pair of keys. 

These keys are known as your  public key and your private key, which are essential to use your wallet to send and receive your chosen crypto.

The public key is used to create an address that you can give to anyone so that they know where to send your crypto. 

It's important to know different cryptocurrencies will require different addresses.

What do addresses look like?

Addresses come in different forms for different cryptos, they are usually made up of a string of numbers and letters but they may also be a name or just numbers.

Funds sent to the incorrect address may be unrecoverable so please always double check the address you are sending to and always copy and paste the address, never type the address.

How can I find my address? 

To find your address, you'll need to open your wallet/ exchange and click on a certain coin, and then click Receive, Deposit, or something similar. Almost every crypto wallet or platform will work in a similar way. If you already have a wallet - Exodus, for example, you can click here to learn how to find your wallet's receiving address.

Just a reminder that if someone has sent you an address, or you're sending crypto to an unknown address, this is almost certainly a scam. Please get in touch with us right away if this sounds like you - it's always better to be safe than sorry!

How can I enter my address into Easy Crypto?

During the order process, you will paste in your wallet's receiving address so that we know where to send your cryptocurrency. If you don't have a wallet, you can click here to set one up, or you can click the I don't have an address! button and we can offer some other options. 

After copy and pasting in your wallet's receiving address, click on the Next Step button to move ahead with your order.

What is a memo, message, or destination tag?

So your address is just like your street address, but some cryptos need additional information to find your address. It is like an apartment building, your wallet address brings the crypto to the right location, but to find your apartment you need to provide more information.

Not all cryptos need memos, message or destination tags, but if you send funds that do require one without one, then the funds may not be able to be delivered correctly.

It is the users responsibility to check the requirements of the address the funds are being sent to.

What to memos, message, or destination tags look like?

They can either be numbers only, numbers and letters or letters only.

These are some cryptos that require either memos, messages or destination tags, depending on where you are sending them. 

  • Algorand (ALGO)
  • BNB (BNB)
  • Cosmos (ATOM)
  • EOS (EOS)
  • Hedera Hashgraph (HBAR)
  • Stellar Lumens (XLM)
  • XRP (XRP)

Please ensure you check your addresses and memo requirements carefully before sending any funds as they cannot be recovered if the incorrect information is provided.
