How do I deposit Bitcoin (on-chain) into my River account?

Before Bitcoin deposits and Bitcoin withdrawals are enabled, you will be asked to verify your identity. Once your identity has been verified, you will have Bitcoin deposits and withdrawals enabled in your account.

There are currently two methods you can use to deposit Bitcoin: on-chain and Lightning. This article covers how you can deposit Bitcoin on-chain. You can view more information on how to conduct deposits via Lightning here.

1. Click “Deposit Bitcoin” under the Account section.

2. Send Bitcoin from your non-River Lightning wallet to River by scanning the QR code or by copying and pasting the “Deposit Address”.

The "Deposit Address" is the long string of characters shown above the QR code.

3. You will receive this confirmation to indicate your successful Bitcoin on-chain deposit.
