How do I send Bitcoin or Ethereum?

Nov 07, 2016
To send digital currency, click the Send/Request link on the left sidebar of any page. You'll be brought to a page that lets you send digital currency to any email or wallet address. 

  • Start by entering the wallet or email address you'd like to send to and enter it into the Recipient field. Be sure the wallet address is correct for the type of digital currency you want to send.
  • Next, select the Coinbase account to send from. Be sure this account is the right type for the kind of digital currency you want to send as well - for example: choose your ETH wallet in order to send ether. 
  • Then enter the amount of bitcoin or ether you'd like to send in the Amount field. Alternatively, you can specify the amount you would like to send in your local currency, but the funds will be sent as bitcoin/ether. 
  • Once you've selected an account, click Send Funds, and the bitcoin will be transferred. 
Bitcoin transactions take about 30 minutes to receive 3 confirmations and be considered complete, while ether transactions require 50 network confirmations and about the same time. All transactions should be visible to both parties as soon as sent.
