I am developing my cryptocurrency exchange service. The first problem - how to distinguish clients from each other? It seems to me that other services have solved this problem by generating something like a one-time address for each client - and then this problem is 100% solved. I found an article about generating disposable addresses for monero. But what about bitcoin? Tell me please where I can read about it? Or about other the top 10 cryptocurrencies. Interested in automatic generation, or api integration with some services. Thank you!

  • See BIP-32 for one way to deterministically create multiple addresses in a hierarchy that could provide for multiple customers. The diagram there shows accounts at depth 1. Sep 5, 2023 at 9:02

    I don't know if there is much more to be said than yes, generate a new address for each customer. Generating new addresses is a very cheap operation, and one that literally every Bitcoin related wallet service, software, or API can easily do for you. Sep 5, 2023 at 23:44
