New Format for Bitcoin Cash Addresses

Since January 2018, Bitcoin Cash addresses have the new format (CashAddr), no longer sharing the same format with Bitcoin. The majority of online crytocurrency exchanges support the new address format but some hardware wallets, such as Trezor, Ledger, and Keepkey, do not. The 'legacy' Bitcoin Cash addresses can be easily converted to CashAddr format, and vice versa, using online converters. Address in both formats are 100% equivalent. Find out more about the Cash Addr format change here.

Depositing in Bitcoin Cash:
At Winaday we use the new format as our depositing address (CashAddr). If you are having trouble depositing, you can always convert the Bitcoin Cash address displayed on the deposit page to the 'legacy' format using the converter.

Withdrawing in Bitcoin Cash:
Withdrawals made at Winaday will be sent to the new Bitcoin Cash address format (CashAddr). You can however convert the Bitcoin Cash address shown on the withdrawal page to the 'legacy' format if you continue to use the older format of address using the converter.
