Also, the Phantom interface streamlines navigation options and provides users with a summary of their most recent activities in the Phantom Wallet.
No tokens are available even after sending them
Before we begin with this topic we must remember that you cannot reverse any transaction here. Therefore, it is advised that you should always copy and paste the receiver's address. It will ensure that no wrong transaction takes place.
Centralized exchanges frequently cause delays in crediting your account with cryptocurrency.
The next step is to wait if you have verified the transaction on a blockchain explorer, such as solscan.io, etherscan.io, or polygonscan.com, and it appears to be received.
Using Coinbase as an illustration, this is typically how it operates.
- You transfer 1 ETH to your Coinbase Ethereum deposit address from your Phantom Wallet. Before sending it, you double-checked the recipient's address, and it was delivered there.
- Every time you deposit, the exchange might generate a separate address for you. The ETH is assigned to your account by their internal procedures after they receive the currency. Completing this task may take a few seconds, hours, or days.
- Frequently, the token will have arrived and been delivered to a different wallet if you check the explorer. This is typical for various interactions.
Transactions from many users are frequently queued up on centralized exchanges before being sent all at once. Your transaction might be in a queue, awaiting processing. Your transaction may not be deposited into Phantom Wallet for many hours at peak times, depending on the exchange. Sorry, Phantom Wallet cannot make this happen more quickly.
