Bitcoin 101:

A Bitcoin address should only be used once. You can think of it like a payment request that expires after it has been used once. You can theoretically re-use a Bitcoin address but we strongly advise against doing so as it is very bad for your privacy. Your BitBoxApp will automatically only show you unused Bitcoin addresses and hide the ones you’ve already used. Whenever you want to receive coins just go on the receive page and get a new address.

Select account

Use the menu on the left to choose the coin (and type) you would like to receive. To activate more coins and types check out this guide.

Receive

You can now use this address to send coins to your BitBox01. When you want to make another transaction to your BitBox01 create a new receive address first, don’t re-use addresses.
