To provide you with the highest level of privacy we generate a new Bitcoin address each time you make a deposit, so your total balances can not be publicly visible and traced. All of the funds which have been transferred to one of the previously generated and used addresses will still be deposited to your wallet. However, we strongly recommend to use a new Bitcoin address each time you make a new deposit.

Will the funds be deposited to my wallet balance if the bitcoins are sent to one of my previous addresses?

Yes, your funds will be deposited to your wallet balance as each of previously generated Bitcoin addresses is linked to your account. However, in this case, your privacy level decreases, as the balance information and the transaction history can be viewed in Blockchain due to its open nature. We strongly recommend you to use a new Bitcoin address each time you make a new deposit.
