Sending and receiving red envelopes with money as gifts during the Lunar New Year is a beloved tradition that has found its way into the digital realm through various cryptocurrency exchanges, including KuCoin.

If you're looking to participate in this tradition on the KuCoin exchange, follow this step-by-step guide to ensure you can send and receive digital Red Packets smoothly.

Please note that this guide assumes you already have a KuCoin account and are familiar with the platform. If not, you'll need to create an account and complete any necessary verification processes before proceeding.

How to Send a Red Packet on KuCoin

Follow these steps to send a red envelope gift to someone from your KuCoin account.

Step 1: Log in to Your KuCoin Account

Start by logging into your KuCoin account. You'll need to have your account set up, verified, and funded with the cryptocurrency you intend to send as a Red Packet gift.

Step 2: Access the Red Packet Feature

Navigate to the Assets section of the KuCoin app. Look for the Red Packet option, which would feature under an icon of a red envelope.

Step 3: Create a Red Packet

Select the Send Red Packet option to start the process. You'll be prompted to choose the type of Red Packet you want to send, where you can select the type of crypto available in your account and pick from Funding or Trading account. KuCoin may offer different types, such as random amounts (where the total gift is randomly divided among recipients) or equal amounts (where each recipient gets the same amount).

Step 4: Select the Cryptocurrency and Amount

Choose the cryptocurrency you wish to gift and specify the total amount you want to send. Ensure you have enough balance to cover the amount plus any transaction fees that may apply. Select the Number of Red Packet(s) you want to send (anywhere between 1 and 2,000), enter your Nickname, and pick your Cover design from the available options.

Step 5: Customize Your Red Packet

You can further customize your Red Packet by entering a greeting or message to accompany it within the Greetings box of your Red Packet configuration page. This message will be seen by all recipients and can include wishes for prosperity, health, and happiness in the Lunar New Year.

Step 6: Set Recipients and Security

Decide how you want to distribute your red envelope. You can generate a link or code to share publicly or with specific people. Some options may include setting a password for extra security, which recipients must enter to claim their portion of the Red Packet.

Step 7: Review and Send

Double-check the details of your Red Packet, including the amount, cryptocurrency type, message, and recipient settings. Confirm and send your Red Packet by clicking Send Now. Enter your Trading Password for additional security. Copy the text from the popup and share it with the intended recipient(s) via Social Media, SMS, or Email.

Receive the link or code for the Red Packet from the sender. This might come through a direct message, email, or social media post.
