In this article we will outline the differences and the steps to connect a Wallet Address vs a Contract Address on Cryptoworth.

For context, we have provided a definition of a wallet and contract address.

Wallet Address - The wallet address is a unique identifier that is associated with an individual's cryptocurrency asset wallet. The address is used for receiving or sending cryptocurrencies.

Contract Address - The contract address functions as a distinctive identifier for a smart contract deployed on the blockchain. Users can utilize this address to interact with the smart contract, initiating its functions, enabling token transfers, and executing various other operations.

On Cryptoworth if you are ever unsure if you are registering a wallet or contract address, explorers such as Etherscan can help you examine the address in more detail. When searching the address, the explorer will identify if its an wallet address or contract address.
