Every time you tap Receive, your wallet will generate a new receiving address. Funds sent to any of these addresses will be received by your wallet. Most major Bitcoin wallets work this way because it is best practice to use a new receiving address for every new incoming transaction. Re-using old addresses makes it easier for third parties that are monitoring the Bitcoin blockchain (e.g. blockchain analysis companies) to associate transactions with identities, compromising both your own and the sender’s privacy. Tip: A Bitcoin address should be thought of as a one-time receipt ID (like an invoice number), not as a permanent identifier (like an email address or bank account number). What happens if a transaction is sent to an old address? While it is not recommended, you can use any single address multiple times to receive funds into your Blockstream Green wallet. Addresses never expire or become unusable. How Many New Receiving Addresses Can Blockstream Green Generate? Your wallet can generate and manage an unlimited amount of new receiving addresses. You will therefore never have to reuse a receiving address.
