Coinbase To Phantom Wallet Not Working 

Coinbase to Phantom wallet may not work if you do not have enough Solana or another crypto in your coinbase wallet to cover up the network/transfer fee, or it can be due to high traffic in the network or blockchain.  

Let us see in detail what can be the basic and the other reason why your coinbase is not working with the phantom wallet. They are: 

1. Not Enough Amount Entered

If you have filled in a specified amount for your Solana or other crypto coins to transfer them to your Phantom’s wallet, and if they are not enough or the needed balance for the transfer process, then your coinbase may not work. 

2. Network Traffic

When you buy Solana or USDC/ETH from their respective blockchain, they may show that it has been purchased, but when you try to transfer it to your phantom wallet, you won’t see any progress.

This is because if the blockchain is facing high traffic, it will take time for you to withdraw(buy) the coins. 

3. Uncleared Cache

Another reason why your coinbase is not working is due to the fact that you have an uncleared app or browser cache on your mobile phone or desktop site.

Make sure you clean or delete the Cache and data from both the web version and application. 

4. Outdated Operating System

When you miss out on taking an update, your iOS device or android phone may be outdated to operate efficiently with your coinbase account or phantom wallet.

Go to the google play store or app store to check if you have any pending updates. 

5. The Server Is Down

When the server is down or the database has crashed, the operations of coinbase or phantom wallet may stop working for some time.

You don’t have to worry about this. Wait for a few hours or two days(max time) for the server issue to be resolved.  

6. Technical Problem

Sometimes, you cannot blame your OS or the database of either of the wallet.

It may be a simple bug or a glitch in your coinbase/phantom wallet software that is creating a hurdle for them to work efficiently.
