A digital currency wallet address is an identifier that represents a possible destination for a digital currency payment.


When you sign up with Coindirect, you will be assigned a wallet address for every digital currency wallet you have.



To receive a payment from another person into your Coindirect wallet, you simply provide them with your wallet address.


You can in turn send digital currency to another person by sending the coins to one of their addresses. People can have many different digital currency and Bitcoin addresses.
