How to Transfer Solana to STEPN in 5 Easy Steps

In order to transfer Solana to your STEPN wallet, open the app and copy the wallet address of your STEPN wallet. Then open the exchange or wallet where you currently hold your Solana tokens and send the funds to the wallet address you copied.

You will either need SOL (Solana) or BNB (Binance Chain) in order to buy a sneaker and play the STEPN game.

Although it doesn’t really matter which one you choose (pick whatever you prefer), bear in mind that the SOL Realm and BNB Realm are 2 entirely separate worlds within the STEPN ecosystem.

In case you’re not entirely sure which one to choose, just go with Solana to keep things simple.

If you already own SOL or BNB, you can move ahead to Step 1 of our guide and learn how to transfer Solana to STEPN.

Step 1: Open the STEPN App

Once the STEPN app loads, tap the wallet balance info bar in the top right corner of the screen.

This will bring to you the Spending Account interface.

Step 2: Access your STEPN Wallet

The Spending Account is your in-game wallet and it shows your balance of tokens and game assets.

It’s important to understand that it can only interact with the game or your dedicated STEPN Wallet.

Your STEPN Wallet, however, is able to send and receive transactions throughout the entire blockchain (e.g. Solana or Binance Chain).

To access your STEPN Wallet, tap the “Wallet” button in the top navigation bar.

Step 3: Create a New Wallet (optional)

This step is only necessary if haven’t already created a Solana or Binance Chain wallet within the STEPN app.

Setting up a new wallet is very easy to do and only takes 1-2 minutes.

Make sure you keep a backup of your seed phrase in a safe place.

Alternatively, you can also import your existing wallet using its seed phrase.

Step 4: Copy your Wallet Address

Now you need to retrieve your wallet address from within the STEPN app.

There are two ways you can do this:

  1. Tap the abbreviated address right under the wallet balance.
  2. Tap the “Receive” button and then tap the “Copy Address” button.

Both options effectively do the exact same thing and simply copy the address to your phone’s clipboard.

Step 5: Send Funds to your STEPN Wallet

The next step largely depends on where you currently hold your cryptocurrency.

It doesn’t matter whether your non-custodial wallet is a hardware wallet or something like Coinbase Wallet or Trust Wallet.

All of these options will work, however, the process might be slightly different depending on how the user interfaces are structured.
