I've created an extended private key payment0_idx0.xprv and stake0.xprv using cardano-wallet.

extended xprv

Then I use cardano-cli to convert those keys to Shelley format and create the Extended Verification Key


Now, I want to build a Shelley era address using cardano-cli

Can't create Shelley address with Extended Verify Key

It won't let me build if I'm using the Extended Verification Key version. I have to convert it into the short version first before able to build the address


What is the purpose of Extended Verification Key? Why do I need to convert it first into the short or normal version?
