Can You Send ERC20 Tokens to an Ethereum Address?

Yes, you can send ERC20 tokens to an Ethereum address. When you do so, the tokens will be stored in the address’ blockchain as a balance. You can view your ERC20 token balance by looking up the address on a blockchain explorer. The process of sending ERC20 tokens to an Ethereum address is called “transferring” and is done using the token’s smart contract.

NOTE: WARNING: Sending ERC20 tokens to an Ethereum address is risky and should not be done without caution. ERC20 tokens are not native to the Ethereum blockchain and require special wallets that support them. If you send ERC20 tokens to an Ethereum address, they may be lost forever, so make sure you are sending them to a compatible wallet that can accept them.

Each ERC20 token has a unique smart contract that controls how the token is transferred. When you want to transfer ERC20 tokens, you must specify the amount of tokens to transfer, the Ethereum address to transfer them to, and call the token’s smart contract. The smart contract will then verify that you have enough tokens to transfer and will execute the transfer.
