Listen to the episode here:

In this episode of “Bitcoin, Explained,” presenters Aaron van Werden and Sjors Provoost welcome Ruben Somsen back to the show to discuss his recent “silent payment” proposal.

Silent payments are similar to previous ideas like “stealth addresses” and “reusable payment codes” in that they allow users to post a static address. While this is not the actual bitcoin address to which they are being paid, senders of a transaction can use this static address to generate new bitcoin addresses for the recipient, for which the recipient – and only the recipient – in turn has the appropriate ones can generate private keys.
