Removal of the Auto-Change Address Feature

What is Auto-Change?

The Trust Wallet team has decided to remove Auto-Change address functionality from UTXO blockchains, namely:

  • Bitcoin (BTC)
  • Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
  • Litecoin (LTC)
  • Dogecoin (DOGE)
  • Ravencoin (RVN)
  • Digibyte (DGB)
  • Decred (DCR)
  • Dash (DASH)
  • Viacoin (VIA)
  • Qtum (QTUM)

Who is affected?

If you are holding any of the mentioned assets, you do not need to worry. You can still use your wallet normally. However, if you prefer to have this auto-change address feature, feel free to use other wallet apps.

Why was the change implemented?

Initially, the Auto-Address change was turned on by default. Then, it was disabled and a toggle was implemented to manually enable this feature. But due to the maintenance cost and the lack of demand, it would be a better experience for all to just completely turn it off.
