To receive bitcoin, provide your sender with your Bitkey address. The Bitkey app will generate a new address for every new transaction and then encode it in a QR code or an alphanumeric string. Once the sender has your address, they will need to create and send the transaction from their wallet/software. To generate a wallet address and share it, follow the below steps:
- From the Bitkey app Home Screen, choose Receive
- Choose how you would like to share your address:
- Show your QR code: This is most useful for in-person payments.
- Share or Copy your alphanumeric address: This works well if you need to send your address to someone.
Tip: To protect the privacy of your transactions, it’s recommended that you follow this process to generate a new address anytime you plan to receive funds. Should you need to manually generate a new address, you can do so by selecting Refresh on the top right of the screen.
