How to Buy and Deposit Crypto to LBank

Deposit Crypto into LBank

You can move your cryptocurrency holdings from another platform or wallet to your LBank Wallet for trading.

How to find my LBank deposit address?

Cryptocurrencies are deposited via a “deposit address”. To view the deposit address of your LBank Wallet, go to [Wallet] [Deposit]. Then copy and paste the address to the platform or wallet you are withdrawing from to transfer them to your LBank Wallet.

Step-by-step tutorial

1. Click [Wallet]-[Deposit] after signing into your LBank account.

How to Trade at LBank for Beginners
How to Trade at LBank for Beginners
2. Choose a cryptocurrency, such as USDT, that you want to deposit.
How to Trade at LBank for Beginners
How to Trade at LBank for Beginners
3. Next, choose the deposit network. Please make sure that the selected network is the same as the network of the platform you are withdrawing funds from. If you choose the wrong network, you will lose your funds.
How to Trade at LBank for Beginners
Summary of network selection:

  • ERC20 refers to the Ethereum network.
  • TRC20 refers to the TRON network.
  • BTC refers to the Bitcoin network.
  • BTC (SegWit) refers to Native Segwit (bech32), and the address starts with “bc1”. Users can withdraw or send their Bitcoin holdings to SegWit (bech32) addresses. 
  • BEP2 refers to the Binance Chain.
  • BEP20 refers to the Binance Smart Chain (BSC).
4. If you are withdrawing from an ERC20 address (Ethereum blockchain), we will select the ERC20 deposit network.
  • The network selection depends on the options provided by the external wallet/exchange you are withdrawing.
  • If the external platform only supports ERC20, you must select the ERC20 deposit network.
  • DO NOT select the cheapest fee option. Select the one that is compatible with the external platform.
  • For example, you can only send ERC20 tokens to another ERC20 address, and you can only send BSC tokens to another BSC address. If you select incompatible/different deposit networks, you will lose your funds.
5. Click to copy your LBank Wallet’s deposit address and paste it to the address field on the platform you intend to withdraw crypto from.

6. After confirming the withdrawal request, it takes time for the transaction to be confirmed. The confirmation time varies depending on the blockchain and its current network traffic.

Please wait patiently for the transfer to be processed. The funds will be credited to your LBank account shortly after.

7. You can check the status of your deposit from [Records], as well as more information on your recent transactions.

How to Trade at LBank for Beginners

This code is unique for each user, use your own code!

2. Enter the code in the “Description” or “Additional information” field on your transfer page.

ACH vs Wire Transfer

When sending money to us, you have several choices. The option for wire transfers is the quickest, thus we strongly advise using it. The funds can typically be received on the same day.

Reference Code

To recognize the sender of each deposit 100% correctly, we ask that each user enters this reference code. Again, this code is unique for each user, use your own code!

If you don’t worry, email finance@legendtrading and we’ll locate the transfer for you. Whenever you contact our Finance staff, please include a screenshot of your bank transfer information.

Minimum Transfer Amount

Feel free to send any amount you want. However, there’s a minimum trade limit of $500 at our OTC service, so if your deposit amount was less than $500, you won’t be able to trade, although you can see it from your OTC balance. We’d suggest that you deposit more than $505, or you may not be able to execute a trade although you have a USD balance.

Once your funds arrive in our bank account, we’ll update your OTC account balance accordingly. Check the OTC page, you’ll see your USD balance appear at the bottom right.

Congratulations! You are all set to buy crypto!

How to understand the definition of Maker Taker

What is Maker?

Maker is an order placed at a price you specify (below the market price when placing a pending order or higher than the market price when placing a pending order). Your order is filled. Such an action is called Maker.

What is Taker?

Take order refers to the order at the price you specified (there is an overlap with the order in the market depth list). When you place an order, you immediately trade with other orders in the depth list. You actively trade with the order in the depth list. This behavior is called Taker.


Differences Between Spot Trading and Futures Trading

This section outlines key differences between Spot trading and Futures trading and introduces basic concepts to help you read deeper into a futures contract.

In a futures market, prices on the exchange are not ‘settled’ instantly, unlike in a traditional spot market. Instead, two counterparties will make a trade on the contract, with settlement on a future date (when the position is liquidated).

Important note: Due to how the futures market calculates unrealized profit and loss, a futures market does not allow traders to directly buy or sell the commodity; instead, they are buying a contract representation of the commodity, which will be settled in the future.

There are further differences between a perpetual futures market and a traditional futures market.

To open a new trade in a futures exchange, there will be margin checks against collateral. There are two types of margins:
  • Initial Margin: To open a new position, your collateral needs to be greater than the Initial Margin. 
  • Maintenance Margin: If your collateral + unrealized profit and loss fall below your maintenance margin, you will be auto-liquidated. This results in penalties and additional fees. You can liquidate yourself before this point to avoid being auto-liquidated.


Due to leverage, it is possible to hedge out spot or holding risk with relatively small capital outlays in the futures market. For example, if you are holding 1000 USDT worth of BTC, you can deposit a much smaller (50 USDT) collateral into the futures market, and short 1000 USDT of BTC to fully hedge out the positional risk.

Note that futures prices are different from spot market prices, because of carrying costs and carrying returns. Like many futures markets, LBank uses a system to encourage the futures market to converge to the ‘mark price’ via funding rates. While this will encourage long-term convergence of prices between spot and futures for the BTC/USDT contract, in the short term there may be periods of relatively large price differences.

The premier futures market, Chicago Mercantile Exchange Group (CME Group), provides a traditional futures contract. But modern exchanges are moving toward the perpetual contract model.

How to Resume Withdrawal Function?

  • The withdrawal function will be suspended for 24 hours after you have changed the password or disabled the SMS/Google authentication after logging in.
  • The withdrawal function will be suspended for 48 hours after you have reset your SMS/Google authentication, unlock your account, or change your account email.

The withdrawal function will be resumed automatically when the time is up.

If your account has abnormal activities, the withdrawal function will also be temporarily disabled. Please contact our online service.


What Can I Do When I Withdraw to The Wrong Address?

If you mistakenly withdraw funds to the wrong address, LBank is unable to locate the receiver of your funds and provide you with any further assistance. As our system initiates the withdrawal process as soon as you click [Submit] after completing security verification.
How to Trade at LBank for Beginners
How can I retrieve the funds withdrawn to the wrong address?

  • If you sent your assets to an incorrect address by mistake and you know the owner of this address, please contact the owner directly.
  • If your assets were sent to the wrong address on another platform, please contact the customer support of that platform for assistance.
  • If you forgot to write a Tag/Memo for withdrawal, please contact the customer support of that platform and provide them with the TxID of your withdrawal.


Why Hasn’t My Withdrawal Arrived?

1. I’ve made a withdrawal from LBank to another exchange/wallet, but I haven’t received my funds yet. Why?

Transferring funds from your bank account to another exchange or wallet involves three steps:
  • Withdrawal request on LBank
  • Blockchain network confirmation
  • Deposit on the corresponding platform

Normally, a TxID (Transaction ID) will be generated within 30-60 minutes, indicating that LBank has successfully broadcasted the withdrawal transaction.

However, it might still take some time for that particular transaction to be confirmed and even longer for the funds to be finally credited into the destination wallet. The amount of required “network confirmations” varies for different blockchains.

For example:
  • A decides to withdraw 2 BTC from LBank to her personal wallet. After she confirms the request, she needs to wait until LBank creates and broadcasts the transaction.
  • As soon as the transaction is created, A will be able to see the TxID (Transaction ID) on her LBank wallet page. At this point, the transaction will be pending (unconfirmed) and the 2 BTC will be frozen temporarily.
  • If all goes well, the transaction will be confirmed by the network, and A will receive the BTC in her personal wallet after 2 network confirmations.
  • In this example, she had to wait for 2 network confirmations until the deposit showed up in her wallet, but the required amount of confirmations varies depending on the wallet or exchange.
Due to possible network congestion, there might be a significant delay in processing your transaction. You may use the transaction ID (TxID) to look up the status of the transfer of your assets by using a blockchain explorer.

Note:
  • If the blockchain explorer shows that the transaction is unconfirmed, please wait for the confirmation process to be completed. This varies depending on the blockchain network.
  • If the blockchain explorer shows that the transaction is already confirmed, it means that your funds have been sent out successfully and we are unable to provide any further assistance on this matter. You will need to contact the owner/support team of the destination address to seek further help.
  • If the TxID has not been generated 6 hours after clicking the confirmation button from the e-mail message, please contact our Customer Support for assistance and attach the withdrawal history screenshot of the relevant transaction. Please make sure you have provided the above-detailed information so the Customer Service agent can assist you promptly.

2. How do I check the transaction status on the blockchain?

Log in to your LBank account and click [Wallet] [Spot] [Transaction History] to view your cryptocurrency withdrawal record.
How to Trade at LBank for BeginnersHow to Trade at LBank for Beginners
