Just signed up for Blockstack under the name sunny.id and filled out a few social verifications (beautiful UI and pretty seamless experience by the way!) and I’m noticing that the address I have listed in my wallet is different than the address created when I first loaded up the Blockstack app and created my seed.
So sorry if I’m spamming a bit much, but I have a few questions about the underlying details:
- Is this correct behaviour?
- Which address should I put as my “Bitcoin address”?
- Is there a way to merge them, or change my wallet address to my ID address?
Thanks and fantastic work so far!
I can answer two of your questions.
To your second point, the wallet address for the Bitcoin address associated with Blockstack are the numbers and characters listed under the UPC code on your wallet page.
To your third point, my understanding is there’s not a way to change your wallet address to your ID address. In the future, it would be similar to how a website auto-resolves to the underlying IP address it’s associated with. For instance, you aren’t visiting “facebook.com”; rather, you’re visiting 18.104.22.168 or something in their IP range (sorry if you know all this, but maybe someone else whose reading this doesn’t). It’d be cool if this feature was included for wallets in the future, but at this time I don’t believe you can have this capability in Blockstack or any other wallet.
Hi @sunny-g, yes, that’s correct behavior. Your Blockstack ID begins with
ID- and can be found in your profile. The Blockstack ID is different from your wallet address (the numbers and characters listed under the UPC code on your wallet page, as @Kitsana mentioned). We currently don’t have functionality to change your wallet address to your ID address.
