Please Contact Us immediately as blockchain transactions are irreversible.

Entering a wrong address whether sending or receiving will result in the loss of coins. Coincurve is NOT responsible for your mistakes resulting in the loss of your coins.

Yes. There are many types of wallets that you can set up. The three most common types of wallets are:

  • A web wallet is a wallet ​that you can signup online to use as your personal Bitcoin bank. These wallets are easy to setup and are generally secure.

  • A software wallet is a software that you can download on your computer. Software wallets are usually more complicated to manage but can provide more security.
