I'd like to know what the difference is between transferring Bitcoins and depositing them, more specifically to activate a wallet.

I've transfered a huge amount of BTC into a trading platform. Now the platform requests that I deposit 0.002btc which will be added to my existing balance, before I can withdraw my BTC.

Is this normal?

  • In the realm of Bitcoin, transferring and depositing is the same. In your relationship with a trading third party, terminology is something you and your third party agree to. You might have accepted their terms of use. You need their customer support, not us.

    This also sounds like a scam. Oct 19, 2021 at 13:16
