What Deposit means in cardano transaction


For this type of transaction, I can see a Deposit of 2 ADA is made.
What is that exactly? from which account it’s sent and to whom it received?

Could be a stake key deposit.
It happens when you start delegating your ADA to a stake pool.

This is transferred or credited to any particular address in the chain?

I think not, once you deregister the stake key, you get it back. Same as with pool deposit.

Yes! But want to confirm that if its getting added to any other account temporarily?

No (max it will part of the treasury)

Ok. Thanks!
