In line with our mission to make NFTs accessible to everyone, Voice creators worldwide can withdraw money from their Voice balance quickly and easily on Voice. Here’s how…

FOR US-BASED CREATORS

If you’re a US-based creator, we recommend setting up a Coinbase account. Coinbase is the largest crypto exchange on the market and is incredibly user-friendly. Go to https://www.coinbase.com from a browser on your computer, or download and open the Coinbase app for smartphones on Android or iOS to get started.

What you'll need:

  • Be at least 18 years old

  • A government-issued photo ID (Coinbase does not accept passport cards)

  • A computer or smartphone connected to the internet

  • A phone number connected to your smartphone (Coinbase will send SMS text messages)

  • The latest version of your browser (we recommend Chrome), or the latest Coinbase App version. If you’re using the Coinbase app, make sure your phone’s operating system is up-to-date.

For the full instructions and requirements, please see Coinbase's Help Center here.


Here are the steps for cashing out your Voice balance to your Coinbase account:

  1. Set up a Coinbase account using Coinbase's instructions here.

  2. Open the Coinbase mobile app, log into your account, and click on the "Pay" button at the bottom right corner of your screen.

  3. Choose "Receive" and then change the asset source to "USD Coin".

  4. Copy the address that generates beneath the QR code.

  5. Go to voice.com/cashout.

  6. Paste your wallet address and click "Continue".

  7. Enter the withdrawal amount and click "Continue".

  8. Preview the withdrawal details and double-check that all the information is correct. Click "Confirm" when ready.

  9. After confirming, you'll see a pop-up message letting you know your USDC Ethereum transfer is on the way and may take a few minutes to show in your Coinbase account. Note: request speeds may vary based on network availability.

FOR GLOBAL CREATORS

If you’re not a US-based creator, there are a number of simple and easy withdrawal methods available to you. While we highly recommend Coinbase to our US-based collectors, it’s not the most user-friendly platform for our international creators. Instead, we recommend Kraken or Gemini for a much easier and simpler exchange process.


Kraken***

Supported USDC-FIAT trading pairs: USD, EUR, GBP, AUD

  1. Open an account with Kraken.

  2. Go to voice.com/cashout.

  3. Paste your Kraken wallet address in Voice as your payout address and submit.

  4. Deposit your Voice balance to Kraken.

Withdrawing from Kraken to your bank:

  1. Navigate to the Funding tab.

  2. Click on Withdraw.

  3. Search for the currency you wish to withdraw (USDC).

  4. Select a previously added address or add a new bank account to withdraw to.

  5. Enter your withdrawal amount.

  6. Confirm withdrawal.

Helpful tips:

  • Kraken has a deposit minimum of $10 USDC, should you deposit less than this amount, your funds will not display within Kraken until you deposit additional funds to meet the $10 USDC minimum through their service.

  • According to our Voice Discord community members, the Kraken mobile app is more user-friendly than the desktop version.

For additional assistance and information, please see Kraken's Help Center page here.


Gemini

Supported USDC-FIAT trading pairs: USD, AUD, CAD, EUR, GBP, and HKD

Gemini is another great wallet option for Voice creators living outside the US who need to exchange USDC for their local currency.

  1. Open an account with Gemini

  2. Go to voice.com/cashout

  3. Paste your Gemini wallet address in Voice as your payout address and submit

  4. Deposit your Voice balance to Gemini

Withdrawing from Gemini to your bank:

  1. Navigate to the Withdrawal Page

  2. Select your currency from the dropdown

  3. Select the destination address

  4. Input the amount you want to withdraw

  5. Review the transfer details and select Request Withdrawal

You can use Coinbase to make a USDC exchange and withdrawal as an international creator, but it requires a number of additional steps, including establishing a Coinbase Pro account, and is not the most streamlined process for exchanging and withdrawing your money.

For additional assistance and information, please see Gemini's Help Center page here.
