I'm working on a bitcoin project, and understand the differences between the wallet address which start with 1, 3, or bc1. I am looking to generate a wallet address that starts with 1.
I have seen the answers posted here, this is more or less the same info I have read elsewhere. However, when I create a legacy address via this method, it starts with an 'm'. When I create a wallet address that is not legacy, it starts with a 2.
- Am I missing, or not understanding something? Why are my addresses starting with an 'm' or 2, instead of 1, 3, or 'bc1'?
- How do I create a wallet address with a '1' prefix it Bitcoin Core
Thanks in advance!
