Deposit time varies from coin to coin and depends mostly on the network performance. Once the transaction has been sent, it’s not possible to speed it up.
In case your deposit is not reflected on your account, please check out below all possible reasons for that.
Should you fail to find your case, please submit a ticket by filling out the form at the end of this article.
- Check if the transaction is confirmed in blockchain
Locate your transaction by inserting your hash on the corresponding blockchain explorer website and check the status.
If it was not confirmed by miners yet, allow more time for confirmation or contact sending party support team for assistance.
- Make sure that you’ve been using correct address
For each and every currency on HitBTC there’s a separate address. For example, it’s not possible to send BTC to USDT address. In case you’ve encountered this kind of issue, please refer to our policy on recovery of mistakenly sent deposits.
Update: from 10 May 2018, Ethereum and ETH tokens have one address on HitBTC. Please generate a new address on your Account page.
Deposits of Ethereum to a token address or vice versa sent before 10 May 2018 are considered as a transaction sent to a wrong address. Please proceed to the Recovery article.
- Make sure that you’ve specified correct payment ID, if required
Several currencies have one public address for all incoming transactions. In these cases your own Payment ID (or message, or destination tag, etc.) is used to tie a particular transaction to your account. In case you forgot to specify it - please contact our support team, they will be glad to handle it.
- Check currency performance on HitBTC System Health
We are updating our wallets software on a regular basis. During the update process there’s a notification in the “Deposits” section. You may also check the status for each coin on System Health page. Red field means that deposits are temporarily switched off for the currency.
Once update is finished, some time is required for wallets to get synchronised with the blockchain. That’s why your deposit could take a bit longer to proceed, but it won’t be lost.
In case "Deposits" field of the currency is green, check the current time of processing in the next column. It depends on the network load and sometimes may take several hours and more. It is not possible to speed up deposits processing.
- Make sure you sent a coin which is listed on HitBTC
In case you deposited to your HitBTC address a coin which is not listed on HitBTC it is not possible to credit it to your account or send back to your external wallet.
How to make sure the currency is listed on HitBTC? Please look up for the currency's ticker on System Health page. If it's not there, it means that we do not have this currency listed yet.
