How to receive cryptocurrency with Tangem Wallet

Here's how to receive cryptocurrency in your Tangem Wallet:

1. Go into your Tangem wallet and tap on the cryptocurrency that you want to receive — for example, USDT on the Tron network (TRC20).

If the token you need is not on your home screen, add it by clicking Manage tokens (read more about adding cryptocurrency to the Tangem Wallet app here).

2. On the token page, tap Receive

Important! You must tell the sender which network they need to use to send you the coins. Many tokens exist simultaneously across different networks. If the transfer is not made to the network that you specified when you generated the address, the coins will be lost and it will be impossible to recover them.

4. When the sender sends the cryptocurrency to the address you have specified, and the blockchain confirms it, the balance on the home screen of your wallet will be updated, and you will see the coins you have received.   

Following the same principle, you can receive any coins and tokens supported by the Tangem Wallet.

Once you have received your first cryptocurrency in your Tangem wallet, you have the opportunity to send it anywhere. Read about it in our next article.
