This may be as simple as scanning QR codes related to the recipient address and then typing in whatever amount of Bitcoins you wish to send. If you do not have the QR code, you may simply copy-paste the recipient’s public address.
The process of transferring Bitcoins, Ether, Litecoin, and other crypto coins can be different for different types of wallets. Besides, each crypto coin has its individual wallet options for storage. However, having a wallet is obviously a fundamental requirement. When you log into your account, you will be greeted with a send or receive screen. Here, you have to select the option you want; whether you wish to sell crypto coins or receive crypto coins. However, you are typically entitled to send and receive like coins; for instance, Bitcoin to Bitcoin. You cannot start sending Bitcoins to Ethereum wallets.
How to send: You need to type in the recipient’s wallet address and then the amount that you want to transfer. You should take into account the transaction fees you are going to be charged and ensure you have enough funds in your wallet to take care of this. When you have confirmed the mount, you should check it to make sure there are no errors. Once satisfied you can go ahead and click on “send” button to transfer the Bitcoins. Using a QR code is safer because you can be sure there are no mistakes in the address.
How to receive: In order to get Bitcoins into your account, you simply have to share your wallet address with your sender. You can even allow the sender to scan your QR code in case you are meeting him in-person. If you are not sure how to go about the process, there are helpful guidelines in FAQ pages for all wallets. You must open the wallet app to choose the “receive” option. You must also specify the wallet that you want the Bitcoins to be transferred to. For instance, you should have a BCH wallet for Bitcoin Cash and a BTC wallet for Bitcoins. This chosen wallet comes with an address for receiving Bitcoins; this is what you must type into your smartphone by tapping on the QR code. The sender must get this address for him to send the coins. When you are meeting the sender in-person, he may simply scan the QR code using his device.
It is commonly believed that Bitcoin transactions are completely anonymous. However, this is not entirely true because it is possible to know the amount involved in transactions even if the identities of the recipient and sender remains hidden. If a person can trace any one of the transactions, he can trace all of the rest back to you.
