I'm trying to generate a new eth address in www.blockcypher.com.

Everything works fine, but the address returns this type e3f7e628fff7589218d88ae1d6bcdac52fef2168, but it must start with0x, and there is a note all hex-encoded.

Tell me, how right?


Hex-encoded data is often prefixed with 0x to make it easier for people to recognize it's hex in some contexts. But that's all it is: a prefix. As all the binary data in BlockCypher APIs is hex-encoded anyway, it's just not returned with the address.

But if you need it for any other service, just add the 0x in front of the returned address and it will work.
