Receive DCR

All you need to receive DCR is a valid address. You can easily generate an address from your wallet. Your coins will arrive within ~5 minutes after the transaction is made. To support the upkeep of the network, each transaction is charged a small fee based on the transaction size. Example of a Decred address:
