Are PubKeys from multisig scripts addresses? I.e. are they ever HASH160'd and re-used as normal P2PKH addresses in the future transactions?

1 Answer 1


There is nothing that prevents that from happening, but it's not recommended. In general, it is not recommended to reuse public keys.

    You could scan the blockchain to find some, I'm certain they exist. But I don't know of any off the top of my head.
