How to Withdraw Bitcoin from Cash App

If you have ever used the Cash App, then you know that they don’t let you withdraw your funds easily. That means that in order to be able to sell it on a different exchange, you will need to transfer it back into dollars and then send it to an exchange.

If this is something you want to do, simply tap the menu button in your Cash App and choose “Transfer” next, tap the dollar sign above Transfer to, then tap Bitcoin. Here you will see the number of coins that you currently hold along with a wallet address for where you want to deposit them.

This transfer can only take place if it is over $10 worth of bitcoin since they do not allow anything lower. The reason they do not allow anything lower than $10 is so that you can’t send money to someone else or use it for things like tipping people on the app.

There is a limit of $300 per week and $1,000 total. On top of all of this, Cash App charges a 5% fee when you withdraw your funds.

Sending Your Bitcoin from the Cash App

To send your Bitcoin from the Cash app is very similar to the process you would use with other exchanges. You’ll need to go into the wallet section of the app and then tap on ‘+‘ which will prompt a menu to pop up as seen below.

In this menu, you can choose how much Bitcoin you want to send and then input your wallet address. Now that you’ve added a wallet to the app you can just tap on it and then tap on ‘Send‘. Choose how much Bitcoin you want to send and then press continue as seen below.

Once you confirm the action, your Bitcoin will be transferred from the Cash app to the wallet address of your choosing.

1) Sign up for a Cash account by downloading the application via Apple or Google Store & entering in the requested information. You will need a debit card or credit card number linked to your bank account as well as other basic information such as your name, birthday, etc.

Next, you will be prompted to take photos of your entire cash receipt followed by uploading them to Cash App’s website. This might take several minutes so I recommend doing this at home or somewhere with good wifi.

4) You are almost done! After uploading the photos of your cash receipt go back to the settings tab and click on “Bitcoin” again. This time choose “Redeem“. A QR code with a bitcoin amount will be displayed on your screen, you will need to use your phone’s camera feature to scan this QR code. Now that you scanned the QR code it is time to put in how much Bitcoin you want to purchase!!

TIP: I recommend starting off with $25 worth *at least*!!!

5) If everything went well, congratulations! Your Bitcoin should now show up in your account (it might take some hours). To check out your Bitcoin balance, simply swipe right or tap on the Cash Card at the top left of your screen. You will then see some options for sending, spending, or selling Bitcoin! There are many scenarios where people need to get money fast, and having the ability to use Cash App is helpful when you really need it.

Although Cash App is a good way to invest in Bitcoin, there are other options as well. Below I have listed some of the alternatives I have come across:

This is a great way to purchase Bitcoin using Cash App if you don’t want to tie up your bank account and can meet the requirements.

These fees will depend on each individual exchange so I recommend doing some research before sending any money into Coinbase or other exchanges that host wallet services.
