Is a Segwit wallet able to generate and use non-Segwit addresses?
I’m using Bitpay’s Bitcore to create wallets and generate new addresses for the users of my platform. I’m also using Bitcore-wallet-client to sign transactions.
My users have legacy wallets right now. I intend to migrate their wallets to native Segwit, but they will also need legacy addresses so that they can receive coins from anywhere. (right?)
Is it possible to have only one wallet per user, generating both types of addresses, or will I have to manage two wallets per user?
And if I have to manage two wallets per user, utxos from one wallet won’t be available to the other, obviously. What’s the best way to deal with their ‘split balance’? Should I orient users to send all their coins to the bc1 address of the new Segwit wallet? But then, whenever they receive funds in their legacy addresses, they’d have to transfer again to the bc1 address in order to make Segwit transactions. It makes no sense – or does it? What am I missing?
