What is a Ripple (XRP) destination tag?
A destination tag is a unique 9-digit figure assigned to each Ripple (XRP) wallet. It is used to identify the sender in a Ripple transaction. When sending XRP, you need to provide the following information:
- The target wallet's address
- Your destination tag
The destination tag must be specified when transferring XRP between Wirex wallets. The destination tag is an optional requirement when sending XRP to external wallets. However, you should be aware that it might be requested by the receiver.
Note for desktop users: when you are copying the address of your XRP wallet, it is copied together with the destination tag. Please keep it mind that you may need to remove the tag after pasting the address.
