I had a look at this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhdDQXLCRpE

I can send tokens to MyEtherWallet from my exchange. Do I have to withdraw to my public key? Or, can I send it to one of my Ethereum addresses?

  • the public key of your ethereum accounts should be the same as your address, maybe you would like to clarify what do you mean by addresses and public key because they are the same

  • Ah. I see what you are saying. The first address at m/44'/60'/0'/0 on Ethereum addresses is the same as the public key. Commented Jun 13, 2018 at 9:20

1 Answer 1


The address is the last 20 bytes of the hash of the public key.

Check this post here for more details. Ethereum Address vs Public Key

When you're sending something, you're always sending to the address and not to the public key.
