It doesn't make sense. That's like the biggest invasion of privacy there is.

Where's Satoshi Nakayama's wallet?
The grue lurks in the darkest places of the earth. Its favorite diet is adventurers, but its insatiable appetite is tempered by its fear of light. No grue has ever been seen by the light of day, and few have survived its fearsome jaws to tell the tale.

So Satoshi lives off the Gulf of Guinea? On a life raft? There isn't even an island there.

Showing your wallet address to someone is like showing your bank account number to someone. Anyone can deposit money into it, if you're ok with it Smiley

It's like an anonymous bank account.  A little strange at first, but there's nothing wrong with it!

I understand; I myself use multiple wallet addresses. But I still don't see the point in OP's concern of not disclosing the wallet address.

There are public keys and private keys. Don't show your privates.  Embarrassed

this "address" is simply 0/0 because "Relayed By" is "Unknown".

The blockchain is a public ledger, it has to be public for a decentralised system to work.
Anyone can see the amount in an address, but it is difficult to match that address to a person/business, but not impossible.

A wallet is a collection of addresses. The blockchain doesn't directly reveal what addresses are in the same wallet. But through blockchain analysis it is sometimes possible to link multiple address together that originated from the same wallet.

Where's Satoshi Nakayama's wallet?
No idea.

I think the OP is confused.  Every wallet has two simutainous addresses.  One for sending money, and one for reciveing money.  You're sending address you obviously want to keep private, the recieving address who cares?

Don't know what Wallet you use - but mine has only one address (both for sending and receiving).
If I wanted to setup another wallet, I can of course create another - but transfering funds inbetween them requires the full fee.

1) Copy that address into your clipboard
2) Click Help \ Debug \ and go to the Console tab
3) In the console, type:
dumpprivkey paste-the-address-from-1-above
4) Press enter

That's your other key.

you can use a "phantom system" like https://bitmixer.io/faqs.html
it exchange BTC for other not linked to the first ... a good system (fee applied) if this is real.

Those 2 things make up one address, not two. When you send, the blockchain registers it as sent from the public key. The private key is only needed to create the transaction. Also, most wallets will have more than 1 address.

Forever strong.
