How to find your Coinbase wallet address

To find your Coinbase wallet address, open the Coinbase app and tap on the double arrow icon.

Then, tap on “Receive”, navigate to the cryptocurrency that you want to receive and copy its wallet address.

Coinbase will display the cryptocurrency that you’ve selected.

For example, if you’ve selected Bitcoin, you’ll see a “BTC Wallet” tab along with your holdings.

Make sure that the wallet is set to the cryptocurrency that you want to receive.

If the cryptocurrency wallet is not right, you can tap on it to change it.

Then, you can either copy the wallet address of the cryptocurrency, ask the person to scan your QR code, or tap on “Share address” to share it to other platforms.

Here’s how you can find your Coinbase wallet address:

1. Open the Coinbase app & tap on the double arrow icon

Coinbase app

To begin with, open the Coinbase mobile app.

You can also use Coinbase on a desktop or the mobile version of it.

However, the screenshots are taken on the Coinbase app.

Hence, if you’re using Coinbase on a desktop or the mobile version of it, the user interface will be a little different.

After you’ve opened the Coinbase app, log in to your account if you haven’t already.

At the bottom navigation bar, you’ll see a double arrow icon in the middle.

Tap on the double arrow icon on the bottom navigation bar.

2. Select “Receive”

After you’ve tapped on the double arrow icon, a navigation drawer will open.

On the navigation drawer, you’ll see multiple options such as “Buy”, “Sell”, “Convert”, and more.

At the bottom of the navigation drawer, you’ll see a “Receive” option.

The “Receive” option allows you to receive cryptocurrency from another wallet to your Coinbase wallet.

Tap on “Receive” to go to your cryptocurrency wallet address.

3. Tap on “BTC Wallet” to change your wallet

After you’ve tapped on “Receive”, you’ll land on your Bitcoin wallet address.

By default, tapping on “Receive” will open your Bitcoin wallet address.

This is indicated on the “BTC Wallet” tab that shows your Bitcoin holdings.

If you want to receive Bitcoin, this is the wallet address that you want to share.

However, if you want to receive another cryptocurrency, you need to change your wallet first.

This is because you won’t be able to receive another cryptocurrency in your Bitcoin wallet address except for Bitcoin.

If you want to receive another cryptocurrency, tap on the “BTC Wallet” tab first.

4. Select an asset

After you’ve tapped on the “BTC Wallet” address tab, an assets page will open.

On the assets page, you’ll see a list of cryptocurrencies that you can receive on Coinbase.

Find the cryptocurrency that you want to receive.

For example, if you want to receive XRP, find and tap on “XRP”.

Once you’ve found the cryptocurrency that you want to receive, tap on it to select it.

However, if you want to receive Bitcoin, you don’t have to select it as it is already selected by default.

5. Copy your wallet address

Once you’ve selected an asset, you’ll land on its wallet.

For example, if you’ve selected “XRP”, you’ll land on your XRP wallet.

Again, make sure that the wallet is set to the cryptocurrency that you want to receive.

There are two ways that you can verify this.

Firstly, the top of the page will indicate the cryptocurrency that you’re receiving.

For example, if you’ve selected Bitcoin, the top of the page will have a “Receive Bitcoin” header.

Secondly, the wallet tab will say “BTC Wallet”.

Once you’ve verified that the wallet is set to the cryptocurrency that you want to receive, you can copy its address.

To copy your wallet address, tap on “Copy” on the “Wallet address” field.

Alternatively, you can ask the person to scan your QR code.

You’ve successfully learned how to find and copy your wallet address on the Coinbase app!

Before you receive cryptocurrency from someone, make sure that they do a test deposit first.

Sending cryptocurrency to the wrong wallet address may result in a loss of funds.

Hence, after you share your wallet address with someone, ask them to send you a small percentage of the cryptocurrency first.

For example, if the person is sending you 0.01 Bitcoin, ask them to send you  0.0001 Bitcoin as a test first,

Once the transaction is successful, you can ask them to send you the remaining 0.0099 Bitcoin.

This will mitigate a failed transaction, which might be extremely costly.
