How to Transfer Crypto from Coinbase to Trust Wallet

Buying crypto (cryptocurrencies) on Trust Wallet is very costly.

This is because Trust Wallet’s providers charge a very high fee—up to 5%.

Hence, it’s recommended that you buy your crypto from an exchange like Coinbase.

Coinbase charges a transaction fee of $0.99 to $2.99, which is much lower than the providers on Trust Wallet.

After you’ve bought crypto from an exchange, you can transfer it to Trust Wallet.

Then, you can use a decentralized exchange on Trust Wallet like PancakeSwap to swap BNB or Ethereum for another token.

Transferring crypto from Coinbase to Trust Wallet is a straightforward process.

The only prerequisites are having the Coinbase and the Trust Wallet app on your mobile device.

If you haven’t installed the Coinbase app on your mobile device yet, you need to do so.

You can also use Coinbase on your desktop for this, but the screenshots in this guide are taken on the Coinbase mobile app.

How to transfer crypto from Coinbase to Trust Wallet

To transfer crypto from Coinbase to Trust Wallet, you must first copy the crypto’s address on Trust Wallet.

For example, if you want to send Ethereum from Coinbase to Trust Wallet, you need to copy your Ethereum address on Trust Wallet.

Then, open Coinbase and navigate to the crypto that you want to send (e.g. Ethereum).

You can do so by tapping the “reverse” icon on Coinbase.

Then, tap on “Send” and select the asset to send (e.g. Ethereum).

Coinbase will then require you to enter the amount of crypto that you want to send.

Next, you need to provide the recipient’s address.

In this case, you need to paste your crypto’s address from Trust Wallet (that you’ve previously copied) onto the “To” field.

Lastly, tap on “Preview send” followed by “Send now” to transfer your crypto.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how you can transfer crypto from Coinbase to Trust Wallet:

  1. Copy the crypto’s address on Trust Wallet
  2. Select the crypto on Coinbase that you want to send
  3. Send the crypto by pasting its address from Trust Wallet

1. Copy the crypto’s address on Trust Wallet

Trust Wallet Ethereum

To begin with, open Trust Wallet on your mobile device and navigate to your wallet.

On your wallet, you’ll see a list of cryptocurrencies.

This includes “Bitcoin”, “Ethereum”, “BNB”, and “Smart Chain”.

In this step, you need to navigate to the cryptocurrency that you want to receive.

If you want to send other cryptocurrencies, you need to manually add it from the “Manage” page.

To do so, tap on the Settings icon > search for the cryptocurrency that you want to receive/paste its address > tap on the switch to enable it.

Once you’ve enabled it, the cryptocurrency will appear on your wallet.

For example, if you want to send Ethereum from Coinbase to Trust Wallet, tap on “Ethereum”.

Trust Wallet Ethereum copy address

Once you’ve navigated to the cryptocurrency that you want to send from Coinbase to Trust Wallet, you need to copy its address.

For example, if you’ve tapped on “Ethereum”, you’ll land on your Ethereum wallet.

On your wallet, you’ll see four icons including “Send”, “Receive”, “Copy”, and “More”.

Tap on “Copy” to copy your cryptocurrency’s address (e.g. Ethereum).

This will copy the cryptocurrency’s address from Trust Wallet to your clipboard.

You need to paste this address on Coinbase later on.

2. Select the crypto on Coinbase that you want to send

Now, open the Coinbase app on your mobile device.

If you haven’t downloaded the Coinbase app yet, you need to do so from the App Store or Google Play Store.

Alternatively, you can use Coinbase on your desktop.

However, the user interface will be a little different.

Once you’re on the Coinbase app, log in to your account.

On Coinbase, you’ll need to navigate to the sending page.

To do so, tap on the “reverse” icon on the bottom navigation bar.

Coinbase send

After you’ve tapped on the “Reverse” icon on the bottom navigation bar, a navigation menu will open.

On the navigation menu, you’ll see several options.

This includes “Buy”, “Sell”, “Convert”, “Send”, and “Receive”.

Since you’re looking to send a cryptocurrency (e.g. Ethereum) to Trust Wallet, tap on the “Send” option.

Coinbase select asset

Once you’ve tapped on the “Send” option, you’ll land on the “Select asset” page.

On the “Select asset” page, you’ll see a list of cryptocurrencies that you own.

Tap on the cryptocurrency that you want to send to Trust Wallet.

For example, if you’re looking to send Ethereum, tap on “Ethereum”.

If you don’t see the cryptocurrency that you want to send on the page, it means that you haven’t bought it yet.

If that’s the case, you need to buy it on Coinbase first before you can send it to Trust Wallet.

3. Send the crypto by pasting its address from Trust Wallet

Coinbase enter amount

After you’ve selected the cryptocurrency that you want to send via the “Select asset” page, you’ll land on the “Enter amount” page.

On the “Enter amount” page, you’ll see the amount of cryptocurrency that you own in fiat currency.

That is the maximum amount of cryptocurrency that you can send.

On the number pad, key in the amount of cryptocurrency (e.g. Ethereum) that you want to send to Trust Wallet.

For example, if you want to send “$8” of Ethereum, tap on “8” on the number pad.

Then, tap on “Continue” to proceed to the next step.

How to transfer crypto from Coinbase to Trustwallet

After you’ve tapped on “Continue”, you’ll land on the “Select recipient” page.

You may have to tap on “Not now” before you can reach this page.

On the “Select recipient” page, you’ll see a couple of fields including “To” and “Note”.

Firstly, paste your cryptocurrency’s address from Trust Wallet on the “To” field.

You should have copied this address on the first step.

Make sure that you’ve copied the right address from Trust Wallet.

Otherwise, your funds may be lost.

For example, if you want to send Ethereum to Trust Wallet, make sure that the address you’ve pasted is your Ethereum address from Trust Wallet.

Next, you can add an optional note on the “Note” field.

Then, tap on “Preview send” to proceed to the confirmation page.

Send crypto on Coinbase

After you’ve tapped on “Preview send”, you’ll land on the “You are sending” page.

On the page, you’ll see how much crypto (e.g. Ethereum) you’re sending to Trust Wallet.

It also shows the Coinbase fee and the Network fee.

The transaction comes with a network fee, so the total amount of crypto (e.g. Ethereum) that you’re sending might be higher than what you’ve entered previously.

Lastly, tap on “Send now” to send your crypto from Coinbase to Trust Wallet.

The transaction will be usually completed in 30 to 60 minutes.

Once the transaction is completed, you’ll be able to see the amount of crypto that you’ve received on Trust Wallet.

Conclusion

Transferring crypto from one wallet to another is usually a quick and easy process.

However, the transaction might be delayed due to network congestion.

Whenever you’re sending crypto to another wallet, make sure that you’ve pasted the right wallet address.

Otherwise, your funds may be lost.
