FTX US actively monitors all deposits and withdrawals and we may reach out for additional compliance and security verifications. 


FTX.US pays crypto withdrawal blockchain fees for all tokens except for ERC20/ETH and small BTC token withdrawals. 

Deposit Speed

Blockchain confirmations:

Token Confirmations Required
ETH 10
USDT (ERC20) 10

Withdrawal Speed

FTX.US aims to process withdrawals promptly. Most withdrawals are processed within a few minutes.  Larger withdrawals can require manual review and take up to a few hours.

Note that withdrawals of Stablecoins can be limited by their creation and redemption speeds. For larger withdrawals this can take up to 6 hours on weekdays and up to one day on weekends.

USD Stablecoins

USDC, TUSD, USDP and BUSD all count as "USD Stablecoin" balances. Depositing any of those to your FTX.US wallet will credit you 1:1 with USD Stablecoins.

You can withdraw USD Stablecoins 1:1 as any of USDC, TUSD, USDP and BUSD.


USDT can be deposited or withdrawn as either OMNI, ERC20, TRC20, SPL. You can find the wallet addresses at FTX.US will automatically detect which chain you are withdrawing USDT on based on the address you are sending it to. 

Wrong Address

FTX.US is not responsible if you send deposits or withdrawals to an incorrect address. If you are withdrawing from FTX.US to an incorrect address, there is likely nothing FTX.US can do to recover the tokens. If you deposit to an incorrect FTX.US address, we can attempt to recover it, but will charge at least $500 or 5% to do so. Note that there are no guarantees that we will recover it.

Examples of incorrect addresses include sending an ERC20 token to a different ETH address and sending OMNI USDT to your BTC address.

ETH deposits

FTX.US does credit smart contract ETH deposits. There may be a 20 minute delay from when the deposit has 10 confirmations to when it will be credited to your account. Standard ETH blockchain transfers will be credited after 10 confirmations. 

Deposit & Withdrawal Limits

US individuals with tier 1 accounts are limited to $10,000 in crypto & fiat withdrawals per day, and $300,000 in lifetime withdrawals. US individuals with tier 2 accounts are not limited in their crypto or fiat deposits or withdrawals. For a full breakdown on the account tier structure, click here.


Some coins require a tag, or memo, to deposit. If you deposit one of these coins to FTX.US, you have to include the tag as well. The tag is the only way for us to know who deposited the coin, so if you don't, the coin won't be credited to your account. We can then attempt to recover it but may charge at least $500 or 5% to do so. Note that there are no guarantees that we will recover it.
