Transferring Siacoins

Sending Siacoins

Whether you're sending Siacoins (SC) to an exchange or a friend, it's easy and can be done right. You can check the transaction status bywalletd.
Go to walletd. If you're asked to unlock the wallet, use your seed or a custom password if you've set one. If you haven't got a wallet set up, visit our Setting up walletd guide; otherwise, choose from the Dashboard a wallet you wish to send Siacoins from.

Setup your transaction

Click on the Send button. Enter the recipient's wallet address and the amount of Siacoins you want to send. Make sure that you've entered a Siacoin wallet address and that you've entered it correctly.
