What are my Public Key and Private Key?

The way that Blockchain transactions are sent involves a secure sign off process, also known as Cryptography.

For each individual, the Public and Private Keys are generated as a pair and are linked mathematically.

Your Public Key, which you can also think of as your public address, is an alphanumeric number that is used when people want to send you digital currency or other transaction data. When a transaction is sent to a Public Key address, it is encrypted, similar to how password and credit card information is stored on websites, like Amazon. You should share your Public Keys with as many people as possible because they might send you digital currency.
