Hello there,

Im using bitcoin.com to create my cold storage (paper wallet)

I think the receiving address is not a bitcoin public address format.

Can anyone verify this?





This is the link to the generator https://tools.bitcoin.com/paper-wallet/

scroll up a little bit from this picture and you will get your answer!
on top of the page in big font it says "Bitcoin Cash (BCH) paper" wallet. and that address is the new "cash address" format that bitcoin cash adopted a while ago (a rip off of Bech32 format that bitcoin uses) although i don't know why it is omitting the Human Readable Part:
Code:
hrp= bitcoincash
separator= :
data part= qpqez.....

unfortunately this is one of many misleading things on bitcoin.com
use bitaddress.org if you want to create paper wallets.

But why it misled me into creating a bitcoin cash wallet.

unfortunately the owners of bitcoin.com have been running a propaganda campaign against bitcoin and have been trying to convince everyone that their creation (bitcoin cash) is the real bitcoin. for that they have changed almost everything bitcoin related in their website to bitcoin-cash. you can see the text at the bottom is still talking about "bitcoin" even links to bitcoin explorers not bitcoin-cash explorers. they have even sold bitcoin-cash to users as bitcoin for a short while!

Wow, this will confuse new user into thinking that bitcoin cash is the real thing. If they paid $6000 for a bitcoin, and receive 1 bitcoincash, they wouldnt even know. Because for newbie, bitcoin.com is the main website for bitcoin.
