help me understand this transaction - https://www.blockchain.com/ro/btc/tx/1318a3e54cff78fdd8f6b54e6fe5115072586091788c9bfa08ca82d83e4bc276 .

Never sent bitcoin from hardware / hot wallet before so I am new to this

So I tried a demo send from one wallet ****c276 to my crypto.com wallet **xmhue

  • so I understand that my wallet was converted to a new wallet ****qhev with the remaining amount

what I don't understand:

  • 0.001 of my bitcoin got sent to the correct crypto.com wallet, but 0.001 of my bitcoin got sent to a unrecognized wallet - ***myAn - I don't understand what this is
  • I don't know how Electrum chose that wallet for sending the payment , is the choosing of the wallet automatic from Electrum ?

I don't know how Electrum chose that wallet for sending the payment , is the choosing of the wallet automatic from Electrum ?

Maybe its a change address. You can read about change addresses in the below links:

What does change address mean inside Electrum wallet?

What all the addresses are in my Electrum wallet?

I am not sure why change address is starting with "3" which can be a p2sh-segwit address because input address bc1qxesjp5g4d23kpt9xghwxlu4mfhu9xxrehp0ytnm023ely43kdh9spsy4k7 is most likely an address from 2 of 3 multisig wallet with p2wsh addresses.

  • yeah, but I cannot find it in my ADDRESSES tab :( – digitalzoomstudio Dec 7 '20 at 18:40
  • Then its not an address from your wallet and you added it in the outputs while creating transaction. Or if this is a wallet used by 3 people and 2 of them signed the transaction, then maybe other person added it in outputs so bc1qxesjp5g4d23kpt9xghwxlu4mfhu9xxrehp0ytnm023ely43kdh9spsy4k7 is input, bc1qlctcpg486aw0t9kps659evc26pszg2h22xmhue is crypto.com address, bc1qjg9rgaeuvx85cw7ssvtnyutrnq230k5ycl54m84mfj5096p0c8qq00qhev is change address and 3Kxa9XGD4VJqm1y7vd31YNNCVBCEUgmyAn UNKNOWN ADDRESS added by you or other cosigner. – Prayank Dec 7 '20 at 18:44
