New Deposit Addresses on BitMart
Deposit addresses for all tokens will be updated on BitMart Exchange and old deposit addresses will no longer work. If you deposit into an old deposit address the funds will be lost and cannot be recovered. Ensure before you make any BitMart deposit that you log out and then log back in to get an updated deposit address.

Take inventory of your crypto, update passwords, when you have amassed $10,000 or more in value it may be time to consider a hardware wallet unless you are staking your crypto as many of our users do.
