What is an xPub Key?
In order to receive Bitcoin payments, a separate Bitcoin address must be created for each payment. This Bitcoin address is a public address, as it can be shared with anyone. In order for this infinite number of public Bitcoin addresses to be generated automatically, an Extended Public Address, or xPub for short, is required.
Each Bitcoin payment to a Bitcoin address generated from the xPub key is thus credited to one’s Bitcoin wallet.
Your own xPub key will be deposited at Coinsnap and thus all Bitcoin payments will be credited directly to your own Bitcoin wallet.
