I have understood that the amount of addresses that can be created is very very large. But all estimates I have seen don’t take into account that a user has multiple addresses. What got me concerned is that the bitcoin wallet I use “Blockchain” generates brand new addresses for my wallet for every transaction. All address that are generated belong to me. I’m not sure if every bitcoin wallet works like this. However I haven’t crunched any numbers but in the future with the amount of transactions that could occur. The chances of generating a duplicate address may still be high but not high enough for you to be certain? Sorry if this is a stupid question I have been looking into bitcoin for only 2 months or so and seemed like something that wasn’t discussed when answering questions like this.
