[ATNET Crypto Trading Glossary] Coin Control

jargon     · [crypto-jargon]
What is coin control and where can you get it?

In the blockchain industry, we call coin control an advanced feature of cryptocurrency wallets that lets you choose which incoming transaction you want to spend and which to leave unspent.

This feature is necessary if you want to escape from a dust attack, an attack on privacy that happens on the bitcoin blockchain.

Bitcoin wallets that support coin control

Coin Control on a Ledger wallet

On any Ledger device, coin control is easily accessible through the Ledger Live application.

Ledger Live supports coin control in the dialog you go through when sending crypto out. You simply click on “coin control” and then unselect the dust.

If you use change addresses, transaction of any size will move all your non-dusted coins from the dusted address.
