Address Note

Cryptocurrencies in general have standardized address formats. BTC has many (.e. p2pkh, p2sh, p2wpkh, p2wsh), which carried over to BCH and BSV. During this fork, it became clear that there was confusion around identical addresses between BTC and BCH, and so CashAddr was introduced for BCH. This new standard is only a user-facing change, and so there are simultaneously two valid address representations for most BCH transfers and transactions. A lot more information is available on this specific case at:

In Blockset, we exclusively use CashAddr, and you must do any conversion between the two locally
