Cant send from Localbitcoins to Electrum. ELI5 Bitcoin address inter-operability?
When I tried to send from Localbitcoins to Electrum it failed even though I thought Local had upgraded 2 years ago. I sent it elsewhere so didn't need to solve that issue. Why is it still not working? https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Address explaining the address formats:
There are currently three address formats in use: P2PKH which begin with the number 1, eg: 1BvBMSEYstWetqTFn5Au4m4GFg7xJaNVN2 P2SH type starting with the number 3, eg: 3J98t1WpEZ73CNmQviecrnyiWrnqRhWNLy Bech32 type starting with bc1, eg: bc1qar0srrr7xfkvy5l643lydnw9re59gtzzwf5mdq

Can you see Coinbase's Public Bitcoin Address on the blockchain?
I've never used Coinbase personally but someone told me that the funds sent to a deposit address get aggregated in Coinbase's super wallet. Is that public or do they hide all the funds in an HD wallet?
I got a scammer to send me their Bitcoin address and Paypal account. What can I do to report them?
I reached the 'pay now' point in a transaction, at which point I directed the scammer to contact my 'personal assistant' (one of my other scambaiting mailboxes). The scammer has given me their Bitcoin address and PayPal account. Is there anything I can do to report them?
I was looking out for an email that's accidentally labelled as spam and when looking through the folder I found one of those leaked password emails where they try to scam me by using a (presumably) hacked password from some website. Don't worry I changed all my important passwords years ago to Bitwarden made ones. Anyway, I have the emails and the BTC address; is there any way to report him to, idk, the scam police or something? Or some way I can add him to a registry or an online scam thing or something?
Accepting a debit/credit card payment with a Bitcoin Address?
Might sound far fetched, but is there any way that a customer can purchase an item online using their credit/debit card and it be transferred directly into the sellers bitcoin wallet? I'm new to the whole blockchain thing.
I read on their website about this but since my English is crappy, I don't really understand. What if I send BTC to a Bitcoin address I used to have? Because now it seem to have changed when I did a minor transaction. I have a $2000 transaction coming up, will it still go to my account or will I lost the BTC because I got a new address all of a sudden?
Is there a website that tracks how many Bitcoin addresses have more than 1 BTC in them?
I have always been curious about this. One of the things I have heard through the years in crypto is 'OMG you need to get 1 Bitcoin, only X million people can have 1 Bitcoin, not even all the worlds millionaires can hold 1 Bitcoin at any one time! Owning 1 Bitcoin puts you in the top 1% of a new financial system...!' etc But sometimes I feel there is a Fermi Paradox, where if only a very small percentage of the world can hold 1 Bitcoin, "where are" all the people that want to hold 1 Bitcoin? How quickly is the number of addresses that hold 1 Bitcoin going up? Extrapolating, how old will I be when the 'demand for 1 Bitcoin' exceeds the available supply in the network? Dead? I am looking for a website that can show me this type of graph, so we can all see how the number of addresses has gone up and down over the years that contain over 1 Bitcoin, and track that into the future. I find it to be interesting to think about and would like to see. I understand the concept of 'holding 1 Bitcoin' is arbitrary, and you can of course hold less than 1. But it cannot be argued that 'OMG just hold 1 Bitcoin' has been a strong message of a lot of people in the space since I can remember. Hence the curiosity. For the record, I recently saw a video that said the current number of addresses with at least one Bitcoin is at approximately 800,000. It gives me no accurate idea of time or rate of change though.
In this case, let’s assume the person who has given you this Bitcoin address is an attacker and he has already kept a copy of the private keys associated with that address. And now you haven’t done a sweep of your paper wallet and are using the same address to receive your bitcoins. A Bitcoin wallet is as simple as a single pairing of a Bitcoin address with its corresponding Bitcoin private key. Such a wallet has been generated for you in your web browser and is displayed above. To safeguard this wallet you must print or otherwise record the Bitcoin address and private key. It is important to make a backup copy of the private key and store it in a safe location.
