Now that you have Bitcoin, its time to fund your OspreyFX account. To do this you will need to login to your OspreyFX client portal https://login.ospreyfx.com/ and
- Select “Deposit” or “Deposit Funds”
- Then select “Deposit Type = Bitcoin”
- Type the amount you wish to fund
- Next, click the “Redirect me to payments page”
Once you click “Redirect me to payments page” you will be presented with a unique Bitcoin address which will look like a string of random numbers and letters.
Make note of this “Address” and head back over to CoinBase and click on “Accounts” and then click “Send”. Enter the Bitcoin address into the “Payout Address”, select how many Bitcoin you would like to send and click on “Send”.
CoinBase will then send you an email to verify the transaction, so check your email and click on the “Confirm Withdrawal” button.
That’s it, check your OspreyFX client portal and your Bitcoin will be credited once it has 6 confirmations. The speed of confirmations is determined by the blockchain. You can check progress here, by putting in the address you send bitcoin to in the search bar.
The amount of bitcoin you send whether higher or lower will be credited to your account automatically.
