How to send tokens from ArConnect to other users?

Follow these steps to send tokens to other users from ArConnect:

  1. Open ArConnect.

  2. Click on the "Send" icon within the ArConnect extension’s main view.

  3. Click on the "Select Recipient" dropdown menu.

  4. Choose from "Recents", "Contacts", or enter a new Arweave address or ArNS name.

  5. After selecting the recipient, click "Add" to confirm.

  6. Input the amount you wish to send. By default, the input is in AR.

    • A preview of the amount in USD is displayed just below the input.

    • To specify a specific amount in USD and transfer the equivalent AR, toggle the USD/AR option.

    • Click "Max" if you wish to transfer all funds from your wallet. This automatically selects the maximum amount available for transfer, excluding network fees.

    • If you intend to transfer an alternate token, select the token from the dropdown menu before setting the transfer amount.

  7. Proceed by clicking on the "Next" button.

  8. Review the transaction details in the confirm transaction screen.

  9. After reviewing, click “Confirm” to process the transaction.

    • Wait a few seconds for the transaction to be picked up by the gateway and complete its execution.
  10. On successful transaction execution, the extension displays a receipt with the details of the transfer.

    • The receipt includes a link to view the transaction on the Viewblock explorer.

      ⚠️ Miners still have to mine the transaction at this point and hence it may take some time to be updated on Viewblock.

    • When transacting with an unsaved address, the receipt also provides and option to add the recipient as contact.

      • Clicking the link redirects you to the contact creation flow within the Settings page to help you quickly add the recipient as a contact. See our guide on adding a contact to learn more.
