SBR Forum Poster Asks About Mistyped Bitcoin Addresses

Share with:

An SBR Forum poster recently shared that he mistyped his bitcoin payment address by one character and was worried that he would not receive his payout from an online sportsbook.

However, the bitcoin network is smart enough to distinguish from real payment addresses and erroneous addresses, as a moderator at SBR Forum quickly pointed out.

SBR Forum moderator Optional: "Part of the string is a checksum for the actual address. Not mathematically possible to just typo 1 character and get a valid address. "

To avoid payment delays, it is a good rule of thumb to always hit right-click copy, and right-click paste, especially with long series of letters and numbers. On mobile devices, most phones show the clipboard controls by pressing on the device then selecting from an on-screen prompt.
