Bitcoin wallet address can anyone show me example




Some Bitcoin addresses start with a 3. It is pretty much a 3 or a 1.

Before making transactions, always ensure that you are sending to and from a correct Bitcoin BTC address. There are other similarly named altcoins which have different symbols (not BTC) and those transactions do not work and Bitcoins will be lost. Sometimes the altcoin addresses even appear to be the same as a Bitcoin address. You really have to make sure both parties are dealing in proper Bitcoin BTC.

  • How or where do you get an address, I am very computer illiterate – Selina Pyatte Feb 2 '18 at 8:23

    this question cannot be easily answered, as there are too many options. I suggest, you look at "www.bitcoin.org", and start from there. Also you can have a look at the ELECTRUM wallet, which is a good start. Whatever wallet you use, it will give you your first address. – pebwindkraft Feb 2 '18 at 8:27
  • @SelinaPyatte Good advice in the previous comment - head to www.bitcoin.org and start to learn about Bitcoin and Wallet software there. A wallet is what you need to get a Bitcoin address and bitcoin.org is the official site. – Willtech Feb 2 '18 at 8:35
  • @SelinaPyatte If my answer has helped you I would appreciate it if you would please mark it as accepted so that the question does not remain "unanswered". – Willtech Feb 2 '18 at 8:37
  • Technically this is not a wallet address because a wallet is a collection – Osias Jota Mar 10 '18 at 18:54
