Private Key

Private key is defined as a string of letters and numbers known only by the owner that allows them to spend their cryptocurrency. NEVER SHARE your private key unless you want someone else to be able to take all of your money!

A Private key often comes in 64 numbers but may vary based on wallets built integrations, with the famous sentence (Not your Key Not your wallet) the private key is the proof of owning a wallet.

Your private key is very similar to your password to access your crypto. Compare a private key with a public key and address:
