On Step 4 of the Cash Out flow you should enter the network address of your digital wallet. Make sure to confirm which network you are using in your wallet, as your wallet address may be different on different networks. In a wallet such as Coinbase you can locate your network address by simulating the steps for receiving funds.

This process may vary depending on the exchange, but generally, you would navigate to the USDC-USD trading pair and place a sell order for the amount of USDC you wish to convert to USD.

4 Withdraw the USD from the exchange to your bank account. This process may also vary depending on the exchange, but generally, you would navigate to the withdrawal section, select USD as your currency, enter your bank account details, and submit the withdrawal request.

5 The USD should arrive in your bank account within a few business days, depending on your bank's processing times.
