How do I make a deposit to Cryptopia?

Deposits into your Cryptopia account can be made by any of the following methods:

#1. Depositing cryptocurrency coins you already hold, such as Bitcoin;

#2. Depositing your local currency using a third party cryptocurrency exchange service. 

PLEASE NOTE: Depositing fiat $NZD directly from a New Zealand bank account is currently suspended. We are working on a solution to restore this feature ASAP.

#1. How do I deposit cryptocurrency coins, such as Bitcoin into my Cryptopia account?

You can send any cryptocurrency coin listed with Cryptopia to your wallet, simply by transferring it to your Cryptopia deposit address. Follow these steps below.  
  • Log in to your Cryptopia account
  • Hover over the 'B' icon in the top right menu bar and click 'Deposit'

  • Select the cryptocurrency coin you would like to deposit to your Cryptopia account, e.g. DOT.

PLEASE NOTE: Deposit addresses cannot be generated whilst a wallet is in maintenance, delisting, or has no connections to the network. Deposits will not be received until a wallet is online and resumed connection to its network.

  • A QR code and Deposit Address will appear on screen for you to use to deposit new cryptocurrency funds.

  • Copy the generated 'Deposit Address' and use it to withdraw the cryptocurrency coins from their location to your Cryptopia account. 

PLEASE NOTE: The process for withdrawing your funds will differ, depending on the location or platform used to store your cryptocurrency coins. Please familiarise yourself with that process prior to the execution of your withdrawal.   

  • Some cryptocurrency coins require an additional 'Payment ID' (e.g. CryptoNight coins) or Message (e.g XEM, BIS), in addition to your 'Deposit Address', in order to be received and assigned to your Cryptopia account balance. If an extra field is required for a particular coin, it will be shown on your Deposit page for that coin, together with your 'Deposit Address'. 

PLEASE NOTE: Cryptocurrency coins that require an additional Payment ID or Message will not be automatically assigned and credited to your Cryptopia account if sent without it. 

How do I know if it is a 'CryptoNight' coin? 

  • Type 'CryptoNight' in the 'Search' box and you will get a full list of 'CryptoNight' coins, which will require an additional Payment ID when making a deposit. 

Please note: The list of 'CryptoNight' coins may subject to change, check regularly for more updated information.

#2. How do I deposit my local currency into my Cryptopia account (I do not live in NZ)?

If you do not have a New Zealand bank account, the only way to make a deposit using your local currency is by using a cryptocurrency exchange service servicing your domestic country.  You should do your research carefully, there are many options available and not all exchange services allow fiat conversion.  Choose the right exchange that best meets your requirements and expectations. 

PLEASE NOTE: Cryptopia has no affiliation with any third party crytocurrency exchange service.
