What happens when a transfer is initiated

To walk you through the entire coin-transferring process from point A to point B, we will be using the following as an example:

To put it simply, when you transfer a coin from Point A to B, it first leaves the platform and then gets validated by the blockchain (which could take a while) before it ends up at its destination.

Test transfer with a small amount

Test-transferring a small amount allows you to be familiar with the entire transfer process and get a good idea of how long the process is going to take before the coin is reflected at the destination.

Moreover, any information entered wrongly in the process (i.e, destination address, network type, etc) may cause coins to be lost, or at least troublesome to recover. Therefore, it is advisable to initiate a test transfer with a small amount of coins.

Ready to transfer some coins? Let’s get started.

Step 1 – Retrieve destination address
  1. Open your Coinbase Wallet app and tap the Receive tab.
  2. open coinbase wallet
  3. Type in “AXS”, or “Axie Infinity” and then tap on the right one in the search result.
  4. type in and search
  5. Tap the QR code to copy your AXS wallet address.
  6. tap qr code
Step 2 – Add address to whitelist in Binance
  1. Go to your Binance app, tap Wallet (bottom right), and then tap AXS.
  2. go to binance app
  3. On the AXS page, tap the Withdraw button (bottom left).
  4. tap withdraw
  5. Assuming this is your first time withdrawing (transferring cryptos out from Binance), you will first need to add and whitelist your destination’s address, i.e. your Coinbase Wallet’s AXS address.
  6. add to whitelist
  7. Tap on the bookmark-alike icon under Address and then tap “Go to Add” to initiate adding and whitelisting your destination address.
  8. go to add
  9. Paste the address copied from the Coinbase wallet earlier into the Address field.

  13. Moving on, tap Address Origin, then for Type select Wallet and for Platform select Others and give it a name. For this tutorial, I’ll give it a self-descriptive name – Coinbase Wallet. Once done, tap Confirm. Note: We chose Type > Wallet because we are transferring to an address in Coinbase Wallet (a software wallet), and not an address in (the platform).
  14. address origin
  15. Check to make sure all information (Coin, Address, Network, and Address Origin) is correct, then tap Save to add and whitelist the address.
  16. check infomation

  2. tap confirm

  6. amount to transfer
  7. Check all information (Address, Network, and Amount) again and if everything looks good, tap the Confirm button.
  8. check all infomation
  9. Before you can transfer your coin out of Binance, your identity needs to be verified again. So go ahead and tap the Send Codes one more time.
  10. verify account agian
Step 4 – Check its progress

If verification is a success, you will end up on a page that says ” Withdrawal Request Submitted“, like the following. This means Binance has started to process your transfer request.

When “Withdraw request successfully” is checked, that means your coin has successfully transferred to your Coinbase wallet. As mentioned above, the successful transfer may take minutes to hours, sometimes even days, depending on the coin, or the network used.

In our case, AXS was successfully transferred in less than 10 minutes.

You can also tap “View History” to see the progress. When the orange bar of Processing (X/XX) changes to a green Completed, that means your coin has been successfully transferred and reflected in your destination address, in our case, Coinbase wallet.
