I've worked in IT for a long time, I can't count the number of times I've seen scams that start off with "Just send your bank account number, and..."

So when I see posts in this newbie forum that tell me to post my wallet address for a chance to win something, I get really suspicious.   Is it safe, or can posting my wallet address an easy way to give someone a back door to screw with me?

It is safe  Wink

Always use unique BTC address for everything, so you cant be tracked easily

That's what I do for each website/lotto. Easier to track that way.

They are safe.

If you just use unique address for each lottery, they can't track you easily.

No one can really do much (except giving btc) with a btc address.
