Since receiving multiple payments using the same address isn't safe, is there a way to get BitPay to settle the balance using a new address each time? It wouldn't be feasible for the user to log in and submit the new address manually every time. Is there a secure API for this?


  • Receiving multiple payments at the same address isn't "unsafe," though it does decrease anonymity. Spending multiple times from the same address may be unsafe if your wallet software isn't properly crafted to produce unique k (nonce) values for each ECDSA signing (see rdist.root.org/2010/11/19/dsa-requirements-for-random-k-value). – Chuck Batson Dec 16 '14 at 16:06
  • Yes, deanonymity is my concern. – Kar Dec 16 '14 at 16:22
