How do I withdraw Cryptocurrencies from

This guide will show you how to withdraw cryptocurrencies from to an external wallet or service provider.

Before starting

  • You will need to create and verify your account. For details, check out this guide.
  • Open the Proton Wallet app on your mobile device. We will need it to authorize the transaction.

Let’s get started

  1. Navigate to select the Withdrawal Tab
    • If you haven't already, connect your Proton Wallet to by clicking the "Connect Wallet" button in the top right corner of the page.
  2. Select the cryptocurrency you would like to withdraw.
    • For this example, we will be using USDC
  3. Enter the amount and destination address.
    • A transaction fee charged by the destination Blockchain be generated automatically (since the funds are leaving Protonchain, you will have to pay transaction/mining/gas fees)
    • The fee is calculated as the current average fee at the time of the transaction
    • Don't forget to account for the fee - it will be deducted from your withdrawal amount
  4. Once you are ready to proceed, click the withdraw button.
    ⚠️ Double check the amount and destination address. Once the transaction is sent, it cannot be undone!
  5. Grab your mobile device, open Proton Wallet and follow the onscreen prompts to authorize the transaction.
  6. That's it. You can see your completed withdrawals at the bottom of the Withdrawal page.
