One of the most useful ways to use crypto is to send and receive money between two parties. If someone you know wants to send you crypto, you can easily use Sock to receive it in three easy steps.

If you're looking to send crypto to someone, see how to do so here.

WARNING: Make sure that whomever is sending your crypto is doing so on the Arbitrum network. If they are on a network other than Arbitrum and attempt to send something to your address, the funds may be lost and irrecoverable.

If they are sending Bitcoin, make sure they are on the Bitcoin network.

Step 1: Log into your account and view your Portfolio tab.

Step 2: Next, tap on the "Receive" button just below the graph.

Step 3: From here, you can use your phone's built-in sharing by tapping on "Share Address", tap on "Copy" to copy and paste the address, or have the sender scan the QR code using their phone's camera from any app that supports it.

When someone sends you crypto, you'll receive a push notification (if enabled) and in-app notification letting you know, and the transaction will show in your portfolio.
