A Bitcoin wallet can also be represented it through a regular QR code. This means that if someone is planning to send you Bitcoin they can scan the QR code using their Bitcoin wallet to send Bitcoins to your wallet. It’s important to note that Bitcoin wallet addresses are public to everyone and visible on the blockchain.

What does Bitcoin address number look like?

So, what does a Bitcoin address number look like? Well, it looks something like this “1ExAmpLe0FaBiTco1NADr3sSVdsf5ts6hd” or “3fc2e9a9-7f6d-4f0d-b201-df103e7ef240”. So basically, another set of numbers and letters are used but everything else remains the same. This is so it is impossible to forge by an identifier, the numbers and letters are made according to some rules. The first rule is that there must be a specific number of characters in the number. In precise, a set of 27-34 is used, only if you can find numbers from 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33 and 34 characters. The numbers and letters will be made up from the Latin alphabet making forgery even harder. The number and letters will contain upper and lower-case letters. This is to make sure that you can identify the user on the network. Addition to this, instead of memorizing the set of the letters of number there is a QR code that can be used instead of having to use the long set of numbers.
