First off, you’re right that Binance supports XRB which is now rebranded as NANO. There’s no need to convert your XRB/NANO to another cryptocurrency to transfer it to Binance. I think the people mentioning that might just be getting confused with another cryptocurrency or the process might have been different before.
Transferring your XRB/NANO to Binance is simple. Start by logging in to your Binance account. Head over to your wallet and find ‘NANO’ in your list of assets. Here, you’ll be able to generate an address to send your XRB/NANO to – it’s like your account number. Copy it, then go to your current XRB/NANO wallet and use this as the recipient address. Double-check everything before confirming the transaction!
Regarding the security of your transaction, it’s standard for a transaction ID to be generated once you make the transfer from your XRB/NANO wallet. Keep track of that ID. You can use it to monitor the status of your transaction in the blockchain. In general, it’s super important to always double-check your recipient address and make sure your internet connection is secure when doing any sort of crypto transaction. Happy trading!
Just to add a little more on what ‘sketching’ has explained, when making the transaction make sure that you are only sending the specific coin to its matching address. Meaning, send XRB (or NANO as it’s rebranded now) only to an XRB/NANO wallet address on your Binance. This is a very important step since if you accidentally send your XRB to a different coin’s address, you might lose them, and the process won’t be reversible.
Also, as a note on ensuring your transaction is secure, remember, never share your wallet credentials, or the transaction ID with anyone, not even with customer support. Besides double-checking your recipient address, it’s always good to triple-check, or even quadruple-check. This is your money we’re talking about so you can never be too careful!
Lastly, on a general note for the newbies to the whole cryptocurrency scene, it might seem professional to use hardware wallets or cold storages if you want to hold your cryptos for a longer period. These options are safe and secure but slightly complex to operate. So keep learning and researching while you take this journey into cryptocurrency. Always remember that cryptocurrency transactions are irreversible and keep your credentials, password, and backup phrases secure.
