How to send and receive Bitcoin (BTC) with Phantom

  • Updated

Newly created Phantom wallets start with a Native SegWit bc1q. This makes it easier to not only buy Bitcoin (BTC) directly from within Phantom, but also send and receive BTC from other wallets and exchanges. This address is usually used by dApps like Magic Eden or Unisat as your "Payment address".

3. Enter the recipient's Bitcoin Address (this should also be a Native SegWit address)

4. Enter the amount you want to send and click Next

5. Finally, verify the token amount, network and click on "Send" to initiate the transaction.

You will get the confirmation once the transaction is complete.


To receive:

1. Click on the Bitcoin Native SegWit account address

2. Click on Deposit

3. Scan the QR code with the wallet that initiates the transfer or Copy the account address
