Receiving Coins

To receive Bitcoin into your BitGo wallet, you will need to provide your Bitcoin address to the sending party.  To retrieve your Bitcoin address:

1. Login to BitGo.
2. Click on your wallet.
3. Click the receive button.
4. Any of the addresses that you see on that page are valid for receiving Bitcoin to that wallet.

You may be wondering why there are multiple addresses displayed on the page. Your Bitcoin wallet comes with a Wallet ID which is down at the bottom of the list.  Every newly generated address can be used and is encouraged for use in a separate receiving transaction.  The reason and that you can generate new addresses is to enhance your privacy on the Bitcoin blockchain. You can learn more about how that works here: (https://blog-archive.bitgo.com/bitgo-went-full-hd-wallets-financial-privacy/).
