Setting up a Coinbase account
In order to receive Crypto on Coinbase, you will first need to set up an account with Coinbase. This is a relatively simple process and should only take a few minutes. Once you have set up your account, you will need to generate a receiving address. This address will be used to receive your Crypto.
Register for a Coinbase account
Before you can receive any crypto on Coinbase, you will need to set up an account with them. You can register for a Coinbase account by visiting their website and entering your name, email, and creating a password.
Once you have registered for a Coinbase account, you will need to verify your identity. This can be done by providing some personal information and documentation, such as a government-issued ID.
Once your identity has been verified, you will be able to add a payment method to your account. Coinbase supports a variety of payment methods, including credit and debit cards, bank accounts, and PayPal.
Once you have added a payment method to your account, you will be able to receive crypto on Coinbase. To do this, you will need to provide the wallet address of the crypto that you want to receive.
Set up 2-factor authentication
We take security seriously at Coinbase, which is why we require all customers to set up 2-factor authentication (2FA) on their account. 2FA adds an extra layer of protection to your account by requiring you to enter a code from your phone in addition to your password when you sign in.
If you’re new to 2FA, don’t worry – it’s easy to set up. To get started, just log in to your account and navigate to the “Security” tab. From there, you’ll see the option to set up 2FA using an authenticator app or SMS text messages. We recommend using an authenticator app like Authy or Google Authenticator for the highest level of security, but SMS text messages are a great backup option if you can’t use an authenticator app for some reason.
Once you’ve chosen your preferred 2FA method, just follow the instructions onscreen to complete the setup process. That’s it! Now that your account is more secure, you can rest assured that your crypto is safe with Coinbase.
Generate a receiving address
In order to generate a receive address, follow these steps:
1) Log in to your Coinbase account
2) Select the ” Accounts” tab
3) Select the “Receive” button for the relevant crypto asset
4) Your receive address will now be generated!
Sending crypto to a Coinbase account
There are a few different ways you can receive crypto on Coinbase. You can either have someone send crypto to your Coinbase account or you can receive it from another wallet or exchange. If you have a Coinbase account, you can receive crypto by entering your Coinbase address.

2. Click “Accounts” on the left side of the page.
3. Select the crypto asset you want to receive from the “Your Accounts” section.
4. Under the “Receive” section, click “Copy Address.” This will copy the string of characters that is your public Wallet Address—give this to the sender so they know where to send your funds!
Send the crypto to the recipient’s address
If you’re sending crypto to someone who has a Coinbase account, you can use their email address or phone number to send them funds.
1. Open your Coinbase Wallet app and tap “Send”.
2. Tap “By Email or Phone Number”.
3. Use the “To:” field to enter the recipient’s email address or phone number.
4. Enter the amount of crypto you’d like to send in the “Amount” field. You can also tap the “Max” button to automatically enter the full amount of cryptocurrency you’re sending with this transaction.
5. Tap the currency type in the “Send” field at the bottom of your screen, then select ETH or BTC from the list that appears above it. This is the currency type you’re sending from your Coinbase account.
6. Tap “Preview Transaction” when you’re ready to continue.
