I have a coinbase account..I recently purchased ethereum, I used MyEtherWallet to create a paper wallet, my coinbase ETH wallet has a different address than my address on my paper wallet created on MyEtherWallet, why is that?…is that normal?….also, how did MyEtherWallet find my coinbase account and print out my ether from coinbase to MyEtherWallet?…

    Coinbase has no way of “knowing” your account. So as myetherwallet.com. In myetherwallet you need to provide additional information in order to find your account, such as for example encrypted private key plus password. Accounts in Ethereum are not name based, which one of the feature, that guarantee anonymity. Coinbase is simply generated new account for you to which you can transfer ETH using myetherwallet.com or some other Ethereum wallet.
