An address is a secure identifier marked by a unique string of characters that enables payments to an individual or entity. It usually requires a private key to exclusively access the funds.
For example, Bitcoin addresses are alphanumeric strings that begin with a 1 or 3, while Ethereum addresses begin with ‘0x’.
Bitcoin addresses are usually 26-35 characters, Ethereum addresses are 40 characters
