Electron Cash is one of the first BCH wallets to fully integrate the new CashAddr format spec for Bitcoin Cash addresses, nicely ahead of schedule. Allowing you to easily flip back and forth between the old and new CashAddr format and integrating a handy address converter tool.

Since there is still some confusion and uncertainty about this change, I thought a few pictures could be worth a thousand words.

I hope this post can eleviate some of the confusion on the complexity of this change. To clarify, both address formats will be usable interchangeably and are backwards compatible.
