You can also send USDT from a 3rd party wallet (ie Trust Wallet, Atomic Wallet, etc) or from another cryptoexchange (Kucoin, Binance, Gate.io, etc) to the account which you have in a XEP exchange. To do so, select “USDT” > “withdraw” from the sending account and enter your USDT deposit address from your XEP exchange (such as Bittrex Global or Hotbit; select “deposit” > “USDT” and copy your USDT deposit address). Make sure you send USDT coins only on blockchains that are supported on both ends (ie ERC-20). This means you cannot send, for example, ERC-20 USDT (Ethereum) to BEP-20 USDT (Binance Smart Chain).
After sending your USDT coins to your own XEP exchange account, it will take some minutes in order for your deposit to be processed. The negative aspect of sending coins via USDT are transaction fees: You usually pay around 15 US dollars per transaction. In order to avoid high fees, experienced users fund their crypto exchange accounts with an alternate cryptocurrency, such as LTC (Litecoin) or XRP (Ripple).
