Blockchain technology works with multiple advance and integrated features to ensure your privacy. And for maximum privacy, our wallet generates new Bitcoin and Bitcoin cash addresses every time funds are received. Our wallet is built on an HD (or hierarchical deterministic) framework, a privacy-centered method for address generation and management.
And each public address your wallet generates stems from your wallet’s xPub (or Extended Public Key). Each time you receive funds, your wallet will use the xPub to generate a new receiving address. And to generate the new address from the xPub you can follow the steps given below.
Steps to Generate New Address from xPUB:
Step 1: To create a new sub-wallet (or wallet category) in the Addresses section of your wallet Settings.
Step 2: Here you can generate a new xPub for your wallet to use for address generation.
Step 3: Now click on Request will fetch a new address from the xPub of your default sub-wallet
Step 4: And for all new wallets, navigate this to is My Bitcoin Wallet.
Step 5: However, you can here change within Settings > Addresses.
Step 6: And you can choose a different sub-wallet from the Receive To: dropdown menu,
Step 7: Here your wallet will generate a new address from the xPub of that sub-wallet.
Step 8: But right here you need to back up your wallet once; all of your sub-wallets are backed up by a single 12-word recovery phrase.
Since the recovery phrase is the seed from which every xPub’s corresponding xPriv (extended private key) is derived, all of the private keys of all addresses derived within the wallet are contained within it. We strongly advise against showing your xPub to third parties. Knowledge of the xPub can enable someone to track your wallet’s entire payment history and possibly disrupt access to your funds.
How to Get XPUB Key?
You should create a new account inside your wallet exclusively for transactions facilitated by this API. When making API calls, use the xPub for this account
Step 1: First of login into your Blockchain account and navigate Settings.
Step 2: Now you have to move to the Addresses and click Manage.
Step 3: Here you have to navigate to More Options and click on Show xPub.
