Basically like a bank account, you need a reference for that specific account in order to receive or send anything. This reference is referred to as a wallet address. What is a wallet address and how do I find it? Basically, platforms like Bitmama make it easy to pull out your wallet address in seconds, and we will show you exactly how!


What is a wallet address?

A wallet address is simply a unique address that identifies your blockchain account. Basically, it is also called a public wallet address. A wallet address allows you to receive crypto associated with that account and also check the amount of crypto stored in that account. However, keep in mind that each blockchain has different addresses and structures of wallets. 

Overall, blockchains are simply like email addresses but for cryptocurrencies. Therefore, similar to how Yahoo and Gmail host their emails on different platforms, crypto coins also have their differences.

For example, a Bitcoin wallet address resembles – bc1qafewqcem4pdd8dyxvypuej9tkujparkw9awxhk 

Ethereum on the other hand, resembles – 0x5DCEb8Ca8729952b71A430070536650F5d958205

Crypto wallets can also be displayed in the form of QR codes.
