Send crypto to someone
on Jul 18, 2024

You can send crypto to other people using your Status Wallet. The person you're sending crypto to doesn't need to be a Status Wallet user.

If you want to transfer funds between several blockchain networks, Status Wallet automatically determines the most efficient route and calculates the network fees.

Status Wallet doesn't charge any extra transaction fees. The network fees you're paying to send transactions are charged by the Ethereum blockchain. For more details, check out Understand network fees.

  • You can send crypto to any Ethereum address. This means the person receiving your crypto doesn't need to be on your contact list. They can also use any other wallet app they prefer.
  • Status Wallet doesn't support non-Ethereum-based assets. If you send crypto to a non-Ethereum address (for example, a Bitcoin address), you may lose your funds. To verify the address, you can look it up on a block explorer.
  • To send crypto to someone, you need to pay network fees. No matter which asset or token you're sending, you can only pay network fees in ETH. For more details, check out Understand network fees.

There are three transaction modes available in Status Wallet: Simple, Advanced and Custom. If you're sending crypto within the same network (for example, Ethereum to Ethereum or Optimism to Optimism), use the Simple mode.

If you're transferring crypto between multiple networks, Status Wallet automatically determines the most efficient way to bridge and transfer your funds. If you need more customization or want more control, you can use the Advanced or the Custom mode.

The Advanced mode lets you choose which networks the recipient receives crypto on and disable unwanted chains. In Custom mode, you can also set custom amounts per each network. For more details on how to use the Custom and Advanced modes, see Use Custom and Advanced transaction settings.

Double-check the address you're sending crypto to and make sure it's an Ethereum address. Once you send a blockchain transaction, there's no way to cancel it.
