So you want to know how to transfer NFT from OpenSea to Coinbase Wallet?

Did you recently purchase an NFT on OpenSea using your Coinbase Wallet but for some reason you can’t seem to find it inside your Coinbase Wallet app?

Don’t worry, this is a very common problem amongst Coinbase users and the solution is incredibly simple.

If fact, nothing is really wrong and you don’t actually need to transfer your NFTs anywhere.

In this article, you’ll learn why you’re recent OpenSea purchases are not showing up as well as how to transfer NFT from OpenSea to Coinbase Wallet if you need to.

Let’s get right to it.

Key Points (tl;dr)
  • If you’ve purchased an NFT based on a blockchain other than Ethereum or Polygon then it will not diplay inside Coinbase Wallet.
  • The same applies to unsupported formats (video) or NFT created on OpenSea via “lazy minting”.
  • It is unecessary to transfer NFT from OpenSea to Coinbase Wallet because the NFT isn’t missing. It is simply not being displayed inside the app.
  • If you are using a different wallet provider on OpenSea, then you can still learn how to transfer NFT from OpenSea to Coinbase Wallet by following the steps below.

Why Can’t I See My NFTs in Coinbase Wallet?

Coinbase Wallet only supports NFTs on Ethereum and Polygon. It also doesn’t support NFTs that use video or that were created using OpenSea’s “lazy minting” feature. Therefore, many NFTs are not displayed inside the Coinbase Wallet app even though the NFTs are still stored there.

So, let me guess.

You then went on OpenSea, connected your wallet using the Coinbase Wallet app, and eventually bought an NFT.

Yay!

The only problem is that you can see your NFTs in your profile on OpenSea, but for some reason, they aren’t showing up in your Coinbase Wallet.

And THAT is what ultimately led you here.

Well, guess what: You don’t!

Your OpenSea profile and your Coinbase Wallet are one and the same crypto address.

The problem is that the NFT you purchased simply isn’t being displayed within the wallet app.

There 3 reasons why this might happen:

  • Reason 1: The data hasn’t synced
  • Reason 2: Your NFT’s network is not supported
  • Reason 3: Your NFT has an unsupported format

The solution is this problem is quite simple.

How to Transfer NFT from OpenSea to Coinbase Wallet

You can easily transfer your NFTs from OpenSea to any other wallet, including a non-custodial Coinbase Wallet, by using the “Transfer” button on the NFT item page or from your OpenSea profile.

Alright, so maybe we were wrong and you actually use an entirely different crypto wallet on OpenSea (e.g. for security reasons).

And now you want to transfer your NFTs from OpenSea to your Coinbase Wallet.

Please bear in mind that this will only work if you are using a non-custodial Coinbase Wallet.

You cannot transfer your NFTs into a hot wallet that is hosted on the Coinbase exchange.

That will not work.

It must be a non-custodial wallet that only you control.

Transferring an NFT to another wallet is actually quite easy to do.

If you only want to transfer a single NFT, follow these steps:

  • Step 1: Go to the NFT’s item page and click the “Transfer” button in the top right corner.
  • Step 2: Then enter the recipient’s wallet address and click the blue “Transfer” button.
  • Step 3: This will trigger your wallet and you must confirm the transaction (this will cost gas).

You can also transfer multiple NFTs in bulk by following these steps:

  • Step 1: Go to your OpenSea profile with the overview of all your NFTs. Click the 3 little dots below an NFT you want to transfer and click the “Transfer” menu item.
  • Step 2: Now select all the NFTs you want to transfer and finally click the blue “Transfer” button in the bottom right corner.
  • Step 3: Then enter the recipient’s wallet address and click the blue “Send X items” button.
  • Step 4: This will open your wallet app and ask you to confirm the transaction.

As you can see, the process of transferring an NFT to another wallet (including Coinbase Wallet) is actually quite simple.

Conclusion

Many people still think that their OpenSea profile and their crypto wallet are 2 different things.

So we’re absolutely not surprised that a lot of people are trying to figure out how to transfer NFT from OpenSea to Coinbase Wallet.

When you buy an NFT on OpenSea you don’t need to transfer it anywhere.

The reason why you can’t see the NFT in Coinbase Wallet is most likely just because the NFT isn’t supported.

But don’t worry, it hasn’t gone anyway and it’s safe where it is.
