How to withdraw tokens to my bank.

  • Updated

Withdrawing tokens from your Phantom wallet directly to a bank account involves a few steps. You'll need to use a cryptocurrency exchange that allows you to exchange your tokens for fiat currency (like USD, EUR, etc.) and then withdraw that fiat to your bank account.


Here's a general guide on how to do it:

Step 1

Choose a Cryptocurrency Exchange

  • Select a cryptocurrency exchange that supports the token you wish to sell. Make sure the exchange is reputable and available in your country.
  • If you don’t already have an account on the exchange, you’ll need to create one.

Step 2

Transfer Tokens from Phantom Wallet to the Exchange

  • Once your account is set up and verified on the Exchange, find the deposit or receive option for the token you're transferring. The exchange will provide you with a deposit address.
  • It's advised to contact the exchange beforehand and confirm that they support those specific tokens. Sending unsupported tokens may result in the inability to recover them.
  • Open your Phantom wallet, select the token you wish to transfer, and use the send option to transfer it to the exchange's deposit address.
  • If you are sending any token other then Solana, ETH, or MATIC you need to send the token to the exact token address on the token on the exchange.
  • For example, to transfer USDC/USDT to an exchange you need to use the exact USDC/USDT address on the exchange not your SOL, ETH, or MATIC address.

Step 3

Sell Your Tokens for Fiat Currency

Once the tokens are in your exchange account, you can sell them for fiat currency (such as USD, EUR, etc.) through the exchange’s trading platform. The specific steps for this will vary depending on the exchange. Please contact the support of the exchange if you run into issues selling your tokens.


Additional Considerations

  • Make sure to have enough funds for the transaction fees associated with the transfer, and the fees taken by the exchange for the fiat withdrawal to your bank. These can vary significantly between exchanges. Phantom does not take any fees during this process.
  • The value of cryptocurrencies can be highly volatile. Keep an eye on the exchange rate and consider the timing of your transfer and sale.
  • Depending on your country, there may be regulatory requirements and tax implications related to selling cryptocurrency.

By following these steps, you can convert your tokens from your Phantom wallet into fiat currency and withdraw it to your bank account. Always ensure you’re using secure and reliable platforms throughout this process to safeguard your assets.
