Hey,

I'm new to bitcoin and now I have a little problem or you can say a question.

Is it possible that my bitcoin adress changes ?

For example. I entert at a bitcoinpool this adress: 15E**************...
A few days ago I got some BTC's from a person, he send the BTC to this adress:  14i**************...
Today I open my original bitcoin client and it show another adress: 1B2**************...

Is this a normal fact ? I thought that every person has his/her own adress !?

I hope you can help me because I don't wanne loos my BTC's.

best wishes
tobma

This is normal behavior - you can have as many addresses as you want - but once you have used one it will remain your address as well - i.e. you won't lose any bitcoins and you don't have to change it in the pool you are participating in.

ok I don't know that this is a normal fact.
so I can still use for example the first adress?

Oh this was a little shock moment for me Wink

Thanks for your fast answer.

Yes, the original address is still good.  The idea is that by giving out different addresses to different people, you can tell who is sending you money.

For security reasons it is good to have a new address each time.
