When you sign up with Luno we provide you with a Bitcoin (BTC) wallet. To buy or transact with any other cryptocurrency you’ll need to add a wallet for that altcoin. At present we support the following altcoins:
When you sign-in to Luno, you can add a new wallet by following these steps:
Go to “Wallets” in the menu
Select “Add crypto”
Choose the crypto you’d like to add
Proceed with the “Create wallet” prompt
The new cryptocurrency will be added to your list of available wallets. You will be able to send, receive, buy, and sell from your newly created wallet. Adding an extra cryptocurrency wallet will also add it’s price chart to your home screen.
Please take extra care when sending and receiving cryptocurrency by ensuring that the wallet the funds are being sent to is a supported wallet to receive that type of cryptocurrency. I.e. a BTC wallet cannot receive BCH and vice versa.

I already have a Bitcoin Cash wallet with Luno. What do I need to know?
If you already have a Bitcoin Cash (BCH) wallet with Luno since the hard fork, which occurred on 1 August 2017, you will now also be able to trade BCH on the Luno Exchange using the newly launched BTC/BCH trading pair. You will also be able to create a receive address to receive BCH to your wallet.
