No, Actually Droplet IP never change itself. If you want to change and using load balancer you can reassign the public ip interfaces but that is again manual. If you are not using load balancer the public IP once assigned to droplet never change. The only possible way of changing droplet public IP is snapshot the droplet, destroy and create new droplet.

Hello,

In general, the moment you create a Droplet, you will be assigned an Static IPv4 address automatically. Similarly, when you destroy the Droplet, the IP address will be disassociated and will join the IP pool table. There is no way you can have one more Static IP address to the Droplet on our platform. Really sorry for the inconvenience!

However, you can use the provision of Floating IP on our platform. This allows you to assign one more IPv4 address and can also be moved between Droplets in same account. Refer to below links, which provides some insights on Floating IP:

You can also start using IPv6, request you to refer to below links:
