- Is Each Bitcoin Address Unique? 3 answers
Let's assume that I'm going to make a wallet through Electrum that has some Bitcoin address.
So then, How Electrum do know that is not duplicated(Already owned by another person)?
Are we just relying on big numbers(2^160)? or Does Bitcoin system has some function to prevent duplicate?
Thank you for listening my question. No offense! Just curious about the function or how it works!
