Note: If the crypto address belongs to a Coinbase customer, and the Receiver has NOT opted into Instant sends in their privacy settings, these sends will be made on-chain and incur network fees. If you’re sending to a crypto address not associated with a Coinbase customer at all, these sends will be made on-chain and sent on the respective currency’s network—these sends will also incur network fees.
