I am being asked to enter my Ethereum address, but I don't know what to put there and I already created an Ethereum account.

  • When you find your address, and come to enter it, try not to enter it by hand. If you can, copy+paste it. That way you'll lower the chances of making a mistake. – Richard Horrocks Feb 2 '18 at 13:54

    Would you clarify how your account was created, e.g. from a particular client (geth, parity, etc.), or from an exchange, or hardware wallet, etc. – Linmao Song Feb 2 '18 at 14:10

Ethereum address is a sequence of 20 bytes which are calculated from public key by performing this algorithm:

addr=right(keccak256(pubkey),20)

After the computation, addresses basically look like this:
