Sending Beam

While your Beam web wallet puts users in complete control over their digital funds, however recovering funds sent or received by an incorrect address is not possible. Always double-check to make sure you are not sending Beam coins to an incorrect or expired address.

Transaction Fees

Offline transactions (regular Offline and Public Offline) have significantly higher transaction fees than regular transactions due to the more significant blockchain requirements Offline payments have compared to Regular.

  • Regular transaction: Fee = 0.001 Beam (Before HF-3 100 GROTH).

  • Offline transaction: Fee = 0.011 BEAM (0.01-for shielded coin + 0.001-fee transaction).

Sending Beam

How it looks in your wallet

Online transactions

The Sender decides the transaction type.

If the Receiver provides a Max Anonymity Set address, the transaction will automatically be sent as an Offline transaction.

Regular wallet addresses will be sent as an Online transaction.

Offline transactions

The receiving party must log in to their wallet within 12 hours, or the offline transaction will expire and need to be resent. Completed Public Offline transactions will be listed as "sent public offline." Click on the transaction to view the full transaction details.

Max anonymity set

Maximum anonymity set addresses are a special type of Offline transaction that offers the most secure method of receiving their coins. Max anonymity set transactions take up to 72 hours to complete.

Completed transactions

Completed transactions will be listed in your transactions (located in wallet screen).
