  2. To receive tokens to your wallet, use your wallet address. Your wallet address will appear at the top of the Terra Station Chrome extension just below your wallet name. Your wallet address will take the following form: terra<random-numbers-and-letters>

  3. Double-check that your submitted address matches the address of the wallet where you would like to receive funds.

  4. Send the tokens from the exchange to your Terra Station wallet address.

☢️Transfer wait times

When you transfer tokens from an exchange to Terra, it will take some time for the tokens to appear in your wallet. Don't panic. This waiting period is normal and varies depending on the exchange used. If a transfer does not appear immediately, check back after some time.
