Wirex App: How to add funds to Wirex bitcoin account

Thanks to Shapeshift integration, you can transfer bitcoins and popular altcoins to your Wirex bitcoin account via the Wirex mobile app.

  • In order to do so, simply tap the + button and select Add BTC.
  • Select the cryptocurrency you wish to add.
  • You will get your bitcoin or altcoin address and a QR code, as well as the minimum and maximum limits and altcoin/bitcoin conversion rate. You can scan QR code, or Share the address with your family, friends or colleagues.
  • Send funds to the generated address.
    Bitcoins will be transferred directly to your wallet. If you sent altcoins, your funds will first arrive in ShapeShift, converted to bitcoin and then sent to your Wirex bitcoin account.

NOTE: Please take note of the limits to avoid losing money. We are not responsible for funds sent outside of the specified limits.

Read this article to find out how long it would take to get the funds.
