How to send and receive cryptocurrency

A cryptocurrency is a form of payment that can be exchanged online to receive goods and services. Cryptocurrencies work using a new technology called blockchain. Blockchain is a decentralised technology and is spread across many computers that manage and record transactions. A large part of the appeal of this technology is its increased security.

You can use your Coinbase wallets to send and receive cryptocurrencies that are supported. You can find a list of supported cryptocurrencies by using the link https://help.coinbase.com/en/coinbase/getting-started/getting-started-with-coinbase/supported-cryptocurrencies. Services for sending and receiving cryptocurrencies are available on both on mobile devices and the internet. It is important to note that Coinbase cannot be used to receive ETC or ETH mining rewards.

If you are sending cryptocurrency to a crypto address that belongs to another Coinbase user who has opted into Instant sends, you can use off-chain sends to do so. These type of sends are instant and transaction fees are not incurred. They will, however, incur network fees.
