Can you change your BTC address?

Sometimes your external wallet provider can change your Bitcoin Address, or you might want to change it yourself. If you lose access to your wallet and you want to create a new one, you need to contact your wallet provider.

Some things you need to know:

  • NiceHash cannot control your funds; we cannot transfer the funds between your addresses. 
  • You will only get paid to the external address you are mining to. If your address changes, you will still get paid to the old address, so ensure that your address stays valid even after the change.
  • Update your mining address in the software you are using - software cannot detect address changes. Be aware that even if you update your software, your balance will not move from the old address to the new one.

Before you change your address, we suggest you keep on mining until you reach the minimum payout threshold and switch to your new address after you have confirmed the funds on your old address.

Also note that all mining earnings are saved on bitcoin address, assigned to your miner.
