If you are here, it means you are probably fairly new to crypto payments and ready to add some credits to your Voice account for purchasing NFTs.
Moving your money from your pocket to USD Coin, and from USDC to Voice is quick, easy, and *free on Voice. That’s right: there are zero fees when using USDC.
If USDC is your first foray into cryptocurrency, don’t worry. USDC isn’t subject to volatility like other coins you may have heard of and is considered a stable coin, which means it is tied 1:1 with the US Dollar. 1 USDC always equals $1 USD.
If you are trying to withdraw via USDC, check this guide out on withdrawing with USDC instead.
We recommend that you set up an account with Coinbase. This is by far the largest crypto exchange, is very user friendly, and is fee-less for USDC. If you’re already set up on another exchange that supports USDC, you’re welcome to use it — just keep in mind that this guide will not cover the process and you may have to pay gas fees.
Once you’ve moved your money to Coinbase and have USDC, you’ll be able to send that directly to your Voice Balance.
Use this if you already have a Coinbase account and/or have bought, sold, sent, or received USDC before:
Go to your balance page on Voice and click Deposit.
Enter your deposit amount and arrive at the screen that provides the amount and wallet address, plus a QR code to scan.
Open Coinbase on web or in the app.
If on the same device, copy the address provided in Voice and paste it into Coinbase.
If on a different device, scan the QR code to pass the address to Coinbase.
Double check the address and that you are sending USD Coin. You will not be able to recover the funds if you send the wrong crypto or to the wrong address.
Confirm the transfer, and the funds will show up in your Voice Balance in a few minutes.
If you feel lost or want more detailed guidance, follow the guide below.
Part 1: Converting your money to USDC on Coinbase
Go to Coinbase and set up an account.
Once you’re in, you will see prompts to set up a payment method either on the home page, or when you try to buy or sell anything. They have a few options, it’s up to you which method you use.
You will likely be asked to further verify your identity before you can buy using the method that you chose.
Once you’re verified, click Buy. You will see this screen.
Click Buy, and choose USD Coin.
Enter the amount you want to buy, and submit the purchase.
Within moments, you will have USDC available in your Coinbase account. Then, all that’s left is sending the USDC to your Voice Balance.
Part 2: Sending USDC to your Voice Balance
Log in to your Voice account.
Navigate to your Balance page, and click Deposit.
If you have not verified your identity on Voice yet, you will be prompted to do so now.
Next, let us know how much you would like to add to your account.
From here, you will see an option to scan a QR if you are using an app, such as the Coinbase app, or you will be given a wallet address and amount that you can copy and paste into your Coinbase account. It is very important that you select USD Coin as the crypto you want to transfer.
Here is what each of those screens look like depending on whether you are in the app or on the web in Coinbase.
In the app, if you can’t easily copy the address and paste it, you can click a button to scan a QR. That’s why we provide a QR at this step in the Voice app. This also works for anyone using another crypto wallet, like metamask.
Once you’ve entered the amount and address, or scanned the QR code, you will be asked to confirm the transfer in Coinbase. It is very important that you send USD Coin to this address. Double check that the address matches the address provided in the Voice app, and that you are sending USD Coin. If you send another form of crypto it will be lost.
Your USDC is officially on the way. It can take a few minutes to land in your account. Once it does, your balance will automatically update and you’ll be ready to instantly purchase NFTs on Voice.
*Network/gas fees may apply with Coinbase or other services.
