Welcome to our step-by-step guide on how to send Bitcoin from Coinbase to GDAX. Coinbase and GDAX are both popular cryptocurrency exchanges that allow you to buy, sell, and trade Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. While Coinbase is more user-friendly and beginner-oriented, GDAX offers advanced trading features for experienced traders.
Before you begin, make sure you have an active Coinbase account and have completed the necessary verification processes. You should also have some Bitcoin in your Coinbase wallet that you want to transfer to your GDAX account.
Step 1: Go to the Coinbase website and log in to your account using your credentials. Once logged in, click on the “Accounts” tab at the top of the page.
Step 2: Scroll down to the list of cryptocurrencies and click on “Bitcoin”. This will take you to your Bitcoin wallet on Coinbase, where you can see your current balance and transaction history.
Step 3: Click on the “Send” button located next to your Bitcoin balance. This will open up a form where you can enter the recipient’s address, the amount of Bitcoin you want to send, and any additional notes or memos.
Step 4: Open a new tab and go to the GDAX website. Log in to your GDAX account using your credentials. If you don’t have a GDAX account, you will need to create one first.
Step 5: Once logged in, click on the “Deposit” button at the top of the page. In the “Deposit Funds” section, select “Bitcoin” from the dropdown menu and click on the “Generate Address” button. This will generate a unique Bitcoin address for your GDAX account.
Step 6: Copy the Bitcoin address that is generated for your GDAX account. Go back to the Coinbase tab and paste the address into the recipient’s address field. Double-check that the address is correct to avoid any mistakes.
Step 7: Enter the amount of Bitcoin you want to send from Coinbase to GDAX. You can either enter the amount in BTC or in your local currency, depending on your preference. Review the transaction details to ensure everything is correct.
Step 8: Once you are satisfied with the transaction details, click on the “Send” button to initiate the transfer. Coinbase will send the Bitcoin from your Coinbase wallet to the specified address on GDAX.
Step 9: Wait for the transaction to be confirmed on the Bitcoin network. This process can take a few minutes to a few hours, depending on the network congestion and transaction fees you have set. You can monitor the progress of the transaction on the Coinbase and GDAX websites.
Congratulations! You have successfully sent Bitcoin from Coinbase to GDAX. You can now use your Bitcoin on GDAX for trading or any other purposes you desire. Remember to keep your private keys and login credentials secure to protect your cryptocurrency assets.
