I wanted to buy a specific coin that was only available on Binance and Kucoin. I transferred some ETH from my Coinbase Pro account to Binance. After the transferring the money, I noticed I missed quite a bit of ETH. I was so stupid that I didn’t pay any attention to the withdrawal fee…
Then I noticed that the price of Stellar Lumens (XLM) is quite stable and it’s almost free to withdraw it from any exchange! So I swapped my coins on Coinbase from ETH -> XLM. Then I transferred my XLM to Binance. The transfer fee on XLM was 0.00001 XLM, that’s $0,000005! After XLM arrived on Binance I swapped my XLM to ETH. I know it’s kind of hassle, but it saved me a few dollars!
For example, it now costs you $0.02 to withdraw from Binance:
On most exchanges it costs you a few penny, you can use [this site](https://withdrawalfees.com/coins/stellar) to check the withdrawal fees:
I know that there are other options such as NANO. Unfortunately, Coinbase does not have that coin.
This is also a very educational way to see how crypto transfer works. One last thing I want to mention is: DO NOT FORGET to fill in the memo with the correct information, otherwise your XLM will not arrive at the exchange!
