When you send Monero to someone you only need one piece of information, and that is their Monero address. A *raw* Monero address is a set of 95 characters starting with a 4. The Monero donation address, for instance, is <span class="long-term">46BeWrHpwXmHDpDEUmZBWZfoQpdc6HaERCNmx1pEYL2rAcuwufPN9rXHHtyUA4QVy66qeFQkn6sfK8aHYjA3jk3o1Bv16em</span>.
Because those addresses are long and complex you will often encounter an @openalias address instead. For example, Monero donations can be sent to <span class="long-term">[email protected]</span> or <span class="long-term">donate.getmonero.org</span>

If you would like to get an @openalias address of your own then there is some information on the [OpenAlias page](/knowledge-base/openalias).

A block is a container of @transactions, with a new block being added to the @blockchain once every 60 seconds, on average.
Blocks also contain a special type of transaction, the @coinbase transaction, which add newly created Monero to the network.
Blocks also contain a special type of transaction, the @coinbase-transaction, which add newly created Monero to the network.
Blocks are created through the process of @mining, and the @node that successfully mines the block then broadcasts it to each of the @nodes connected to it, who subsequently re-broadcast the block until the entire Monero network has received it.
