I just installed exodus, 1) why the program didn't even ask, do you want a new address? it's generated automatically! 2) when I click recieve on my bitcoin wallet, there are two different addresses generated(that I can click next or backward to chose them), interestingly enough they are not there to be chosen when I click send. which address is mine?

Thanks

  • All of the addresses are yours. – Pieter Wuille Nov 22 '17 at 0:38
  • No, I am talking about just the bitcoin tab, – DarkKnight Nov 22 '17 at 1:10
  • I have two addresses in bitcoin tab, install and see yourself, and If I have two bitcoin addresses why is that? – DarkKnight Nov 22 '17 at 1:10
  • When you want people to pay you, you can give them different addresses, which means you can keep track of who paid and who didn't. – Greg Hewgill Nov 22 '17 at 1:45
  • so it means I have two different private Keys?? – DarkKnight Nov 22 '17 at 16:11

Here is the explanation: https://support.exodus.io/article/81-how-do-i-generate-a-new-bitcoin-address

Your bitcoin addresses are reusable, however, some users may want to generate new bitcoin addresses for privacy purposes. If you would like to generate a new address, click on the arrow to the right of the QR code in your bitcoin receive window.

You start out with two bitcoin addresses. As each address is used, a new one will generate. This way, you always have an unused address available to you.
