When receiving XRP in your Newton wallet, you'll be reminded to include your address and tag.
We are unable to block transfers that don't have a unique tag, so it is important to fill out all the fields at this stage. Please note that transfers without a unique tag risk being lost.
If you have whitelisted wallet addresses that regularly send to Newton, you also need to update your saved addresses. Don’t use any old Newton wallet addresses as they won't be accurate anymore.
09:00am–10:30am ET | Tag functionality will be deployed to the iOS, Android and Web apps. We estimate this process will take about an hour and half.
10:30am ET | Tag functionality is expected to be live in the iOS, Android and Web apps, and we will notify all users when it is completed and functionality is restored.
Tags are used by many coins to increase transfer efficiency; The Ripple network specifically uses unique tags to indicate the specific beneficiary of a payment. This process becoming mandatory on Newton make sure we're able to receive transactions from our users.
