📤 How to send your $ATOM

  1. Now let’s try the [Send] option.
    Once you have selected the right button, you will visualize multiple fields:
    Recipient: the address you want to send your ATOMs.
    ENS (ethereum name service) will be soon integrated as well.
    To notice the possibility to save a cosmos address in a very easy to use agenda, as you can see in the pictures below.
    Amount: the number of ATOMs you want to send with this transaction
    Balance: this displays the funds at your disposition
    Memo (Optional): as you know, transaction to/from exchanges most of the time requires a specific memo. Please check carefully if this is your case. If not, you can leave it white.
    Fee: you can choose between [Low], [Average] and [High].
    Only a few validators admit low fee transactions, so that might translate to a longer waiting time to have the process done.
