Change in transparent address syntax for beta?


I've just updated to the beta, and I'm having a problem that when I create a new address with 'zcash-cli getnewaddress', then copy and paste it into it says "Issue sending transaction. Is your address correct?".

When I look at the example on faucet, the address starts with an 'n' unlike mine which starts with a 'm' like on the alpha. Is this a problem where I should be generating 'n' addresses instead of 'm', or is it a problem with faucet, or something else?

For the record, I've tried three different addresses, all generated by the new beta, and which all start with 'm'.

Maybe it's a configuration problem, where there is settings left over from the alpha that need to be changed? I followed everything in the new beta guide at



Forget about it, I've discovered the problem is that the new beta faucet doesn't yet have any balance to give yet. Also, it seems both m or n addresses are valid...
