Downloaded Exodus Wallet for a desktop. Why two wallets?

So I downloaded the Exodus wallet to see what it is like. I played with the various features. I noticed that when I went to receive. There were two wallets. There is an arrow when I clicked it showed me a different receive address. Why?

    1. Exodus will NEVER ask you for your 12-word phrase, keys, or identifying information. Exodus will NEVER send you to another website to do any kind of updates except for our official website at
    2. If anyone approaches you in a private message representing themselves as Exodus support, please provide the moderation team with their Reddit username via this link.
    3. Official wallet support can be contacted at
    4. Answers to many questions can be found on the Support Portal!

  2. Various chains have multiple address formats, most notably Bitcoin and Cardano. Don’t worry about it too much, as both put the coins under the control of your private keys. Certain functions outside of your wallet may ask for one format or another to send to, so it may still be helpful to know which format is which at some point.
