Steps to Deposit Cryptocurrency into KuCoin

1. Go to the KuCoin website and login

2. Click on the “Assets” tab


3. On the “Overview” section of the Assets page, find the cryptocurrency you want to deposit and click the “Deposit” button.  In this example I am choosing to deposit “Walton” (WTC).


4. KuCoin will take you to the deposit page for that cryptocurrency.  Copy the address it gives you and use it as the receiving address from wherever you are sending.  For example, Coinbase will ask for the recipients address when sending from their platform.  You would put this address in the recipient field on Coinbase.

NOTE: There is a malicious program that will overwrite what you copy onto the clipboard.  ALWAYS double check the address you copied with the one you entered for receiving. 



As a side note, you can change the cryptocurrency you want to deposit from this page by using the drop-down box.
