  • This is the part of data that you keep secret in your wallet. Every Bitcoin or other cryptocurrency address has a unique private key attached. Possession of this key is what allows you to maintain control of those coins or tokens. If someone else is able to obtain your key, they also have control of your funds. Not your keys, not your coins.
