Different amount of bitcoin sent and received


Hey people,

so I’ve just made my first test buy and transfer on Coinbase… and I was left puzzled..

First of all, the network fee is too high.. but that’s besides the point. I guess it’s because of the current network limitations..


“You’ve successfully sent 0.0102034 BTC (worth €10.55 EUR) to …”

this was already after the fee has been deducted..

on my mobile wallet (Bread) I’ve received just 10,45.
Is the network fee somehow both sided ?? I thought the recipient receives exactly what is being sent.

Can someone explain this to me ?
