Seeing the above error message?
If so, changing the prefix "xdc" to "0x" in the destination address will fix the problem.
To illustrate, consider the following example: xdc0762a5dd612c893(...)581d0a69e8eb9044a becomes 0x0762a5dd612c893(...)581d0a69e8eb9044a.
We strongly advise sending a small test amount if this is your first time doing this.
After reviewing the transaction, click Next, then choose Confirm and Send.
Your Ledger shows: Examine transaction.
Using the buttons, review the amount, the destination address, and the fees. If all looks good, select Accept and send and press both buttons simultaneously to sign the transaction.
MyCrypto displays: Transaction initiated.
Your XDC deposit will be reflected in the destination account once your transaction has been confirmed on the XDC Network. By selecting it in the transaction history in your MyCrypto wallet or by looking up the transaction hash at https://explorer.xinfin.network/, you can find out the status of your transaction.
