Why is my Shakepay BTC wallet address changing?

The new Bitcoin cash-in wallet addresses are part of an upgrade which will make cash-ins more reliable. These new wallet addresses are being implemented as a best practice for privacy purposes.


What you need to know


New Bitcoin addresses will be assigned to you after every use. You may continue to use previously assigned addresses but it is best practice in Bitcoin not to reuse addresses.

Ethereum address will not be generated every time you cash-in to your Shakepay wallet. You were only assigned one new Ethereum address.


Will my previous Shakepay wallet addresses still work?

Yes, your old wallet addresses will still be supported. If you have sent funds to your old wallet address they will still be received. You are assigned new Bitcoin wallet addresses which we recommend switching to right away for the best service.
