Memos play an important role in Stellar and Stacks transactions by allowing users to include messages and identification details on the global public ledger.
A memo is a message attached to a transaction on the Stellar and Stacks networks. It serves as a means of communication between users and enables the receiving party to identify the sending party. The Blockchain.com Wallet supports memos for both XLM (Stellar) and STX (Stacks).
Including a memo is particularly important when sending funds to exchanges. Exchanges often use a limited number of accounts to receive deposits, and they rely on memos to differentiate between users' deposits. Failing to include a memo in such cases can result in the loss of funds. If you are sending funds to an exchange outside the Blockchain.com Wallet, always check whether a memo is required, as the exchange will provide specific instructions.
Please be advised that you need to include a memo when sending funds to your XLM Blockchain.com Account
However, you don't need a memo to receive funds into your STX Blockchain.com Account and STX/XLM DeFi Wallet.
