What's a packet?

We have recently introduced a new feature called packets that allows users to create packets using their StashApp wallet.

Packets are essentially a way for StashApp users to send and receive cryptocurrency in a fun and interactive way. In this article, we'll go over everything you need to know about using packets in StashApp.


  • Set total value of the packet
  • Add a memo
  • Set number of participant claims (total packet value/number of claims = what each participant receives)
  • Expiry limits
  • Time lock
  • Set packets to private (need to share the QR code) or public (visible to everyone in StashApp)

Note: A wallet is only able to claim a packet once. Once a packet has been claimed, the same wallet cannot claim it again at a later stage.

The wallet creating the packet will not see the individual packet claim transactions in their wallet history, as it's processed by a distribution account. This means, what you see in fees (on screen) is the final amount of fees paid for creating packets.

Uses for packets

Packets can be a fun way to share cryptocurrency with friends, family, or even strangers. Here are some ways you might use packets:

  • Send cryptocurrency to a friend/family member as a gift.
  • Host a scavenger hunt and use packets as clues/rewards.
  • Donate to a charity.
  • Creating a packet and sharing the QR code with your followers on social media.

In conclusion, packets are a fun and interactive way to send and receive cryptocurrency in StashApp. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can easily create and claim packets in your StashApp wallet. Happy Stashing!
