When generating crypto deposit addresses on Coinbase Exchange, you may have noticed that the address currently displayed differs from one you have seen listed in the past.
We automatically generate a new address for you after every transaction you make or when funds are moved between your wallet and our storage system. This is done to protect your privacy, so a third-party cannot view all other transactions associated with your account simply by using a blockchain explorer.
All addresses that have been generated for your account will remain associated with your account forever. They are safe to re-use to receive future payments, but for the prior stated reasons, we recommend using a unique address for all transactions. You can view your complete list of crypto addresses at any time here.
Note: We recommend documenting and safely storing each new address or QR code generated after each deposit transaction.
