Before transferring Crypto from Binance to CoinJar: Things to Note

When moving your crypto from Binance to CoinJar, keep these things to in mind.

Network selection

Cryptocurrencies operate on specific networks. Choosing the right one is crucial for a successful transfer. Here's a breakdown of some common networks and their tokens.

Ethereum (ETH): This network hosts various tokens, including ERC-20 tokens (built on Ethereum). If you're moving an ERC-20 token (like USDC), select the ETH network.

Solana: This is a separate blockchain with its own tokens. If you're transferring Solana (SOL), choose the Solana network.

Protection of individual Systems/Networks vs. cost

Your selection of Network impacts both protection and transaction fees. Networks that prioritise protection may have uncompetitive fees (e.g., Ethereum is well-established and protected but can be uncompetitively expensive during peak times). Better performing and more cost efficient networks like Solana might experience occasional outages.

Making the choice

ERC-20 Tokens: Use the ETH network for Ethereum or ERC-20 tokens. It's protected but potentially uncompetitive during peak times.

Solana Tokens: If you're moving Solana (SOL), use the Solana network for its speed and cost-effectiveness.

Verify any additional guidelines or network preferences of both Binance and CoinJar before transferring. Before moving a large amount, perform a small test transaction. Send a tiny portion of your crypto from Binance to CoinJar.

This way, you can verify everything is set up correctly and the network is functioning as expected.

Once the test transaction goes well, then you can proceed with the full transfer.

Double-check the recipient address (CoinJar) and ensure you're using the correct network. Initiate the transfer for the entire amount you want to move.
