What Is A Bitcoin Wallet? - The Best Explanation EVER

This is a free sample lesson from 'The Secrets Of The Bitcoin Triangle' course, where you will 'Discover The 21 Fast Track Ways To Make And Save With Bitcoin (Starting From Scratch)'. You can sign up for the full course at: https://www.cryptoversity.com/courses/secrets-of-the-bitcoin-triangle/ A Bitcoin wallet is a piece of software you use to communicate with the Bitcoin network and tell it when you want to send and receive transactions. The best way to understand a Bitcoin wallet is by comparing it to email. Once you have setup an email address you need some kind of software to allow you to send and receive emails to that address. Now this software may be an app on your phone, it may be an app on your laptop or it could even be an app you log into online. With email, you enter the username and password for your email address into the app and that’s how the Internet knows it’s really you that is sending and receive emails to that address. Now of course you tell everyone your email address and you have to do that in order for anyone to send you a message. But just because someone knows your email address, that doesn’t allow them to send email from that address. If they could that would be bad because then they could send emails pretending to be you and cause all kinds of problems. In order to be allowed to send email from a particular email address, you have to know the password. If someone finds out your email password then there’s nothing stopping them from logging in to your email app and sending messages. This is very similar to how a Bitcoin wallet works. Every Bitcoin account has two elements to it. One is called your public address, which is like your email address, and one is called your private key, which is like your password. So just like email, you can give anyone your Bitcoin public address and then anyone, anywhere in the world can send you some Bitcoin. They don’t need to know anything about you. All they need is that public address and they can send money to you. Your Bitcoin private key on the other hand is the one thing you must protect. It’s called your private key for a reason because you should never reveal this to anyone. If someone gets your email password, that’s bad because they can start sending emails from your address, but that’s not quite as bad as someone getting your Bitcoin private key because then they can steal all of your Bitcoins by sending them somewhere else. And just like email, once a Bitcoin transaction has been sent, it’s a one way trip. The only way to get it back would be for the person you sent it to to voluntarily send it back. Bitcoin literally works like digital cash. Once you’ve handed it over, the Bitcoin belongs to that other person. And the same goes for when you receive Bitcoin. Once someone sends it to you, it’s yours and no one can take it from you. The only way they could do that is if they knew your private key. And of course now you know never to give this to anyone.

Hey Mon (5 months ago)
yah I had the same question, I suppose if you bought BTC and you wanted to hold it for 3 months, you would then download it to an external device then when you sell it go to the exchange where you have an account, plug in your storage device in a USB port and it will show up on your account somehow and you can do whatever you want with it put it into usdollars then wire out to a bank account. Is this correct? anyone?
MrGecko111 (5 months ago)
Hi can you just explain something. If I have an account at an exchange with USD then I buy some bitcoin through them, so my bitcoin is in the market do I still need a wallet as I am not having bitcoin just sitting in my acct at the exchange? Or is it even when the bitcoin is in a trade or in the market the details are held at the exchange so I still need a wallet because the bitcoin isn't actually in the exchange. Sorry but its really confusing for first timers.

someone knowing your email password is equally as bad since they can use it to reset your bank passwords and then login to your bank site and send all your money to themselves

An okay explanation but comparing an email address to a Bitcoin public key is apples and oranges because if somebody has your public key they can see your balance, transactions and send you Bitcoin. If somebody has your email address they can just send you email they cannot read your emails or see how many you have in your inbox.
Gary du Plessis (4 months ago)
A simpler explanation would be to compare a Bitcoin wallet to your bank account. Give everyone your account number (Public address) to send funds to you. Don't give them your password (Private Key) to make bank transactions.

Hello Guys , I'm Walton , 18 , from Albania . I was born in England but my parents were illegal immigrants at the time so they had to go back to Albania. I have finished high school since June , 2017 with great grades and an average of 9.87 out of 10. I've been looking for scholarships since then but it's impossible. I didn't go to University in Albania because I knew I deserved better. Recently I've been contacting a University in Austria and I think this could be the big break for me , but my parents who own a small shop here , can't afford my studies at this University . If any of you guys can help , with whatever amount you can please contact me . This is my bitcoin wallet for anyone who wants to donate . Thank you : 1EETWWiLicpY8VZWVKWhTpc5Njgf8KZYEj

I notice that my wallet allows me to use Bitcoin Average, LocalBitcoins, Quadriga etc. They all have different values for the btc- CAD or USD, at the same time. Doesnt it make sense for me to use the one, at the time of making a purchase, that is giving me the most favorable exchange? Since there can be, and usually is, an outrageous difference between them all, what's the catch if I use the seemingly-superinflated one?Also, please, my online retailer says that I should add .001 BTC to the purchase price because there seems to be difficulties if we dont. Doesnt my wallet ALREADY take all of that into account when I complete the transaction? I'm SO a newbie! Thanks alot.

if I install a wallet, buy some bitcoins, and then UN-install the wallet, will my bitcoins then be gone forever?
hades azure (10 months ago)
I'm guessing if you have a software wallet you won't be able to view the private key because it would be encrypted in the wallet file the software generates, which is why backing up this file is important. If you wanted to transfer funds to a paper wallet "where the unencrypted keys are printed out" you would have to transfer the funds from the software wallet to the paper one. But then in order to spend those bitcoins you would have to transfer the unencrypted keys to a software/hardware wallet that can interact with the block-chain.
hades azure (10 months ago)
OK this is starting to get confusing, my understanding was that the bitcoins aren't physically stored in the "wallet", they are encrypted in the block chain and in order to access those funds you just need the private and public key which is essentially all your wallet is.

Kyle Challis what if I copy my private key somewhere else then uninstall the wallet ? or if I want to deal with a different wallet .. what am I supposed to do ?
Nader Qarini (11 months ago)
Kyle Challis haha man you're good at explaining this, you should have a YouTube channel on it too :))) I appreciate your help 👍
Kyle Challis (11 months ago)
That's right! :D I probably described it poorly. Basically, if you were to 1) install Bitcoin wallet 2) receive Bitcoin to that wallet 3) uninstall Bitcoin wallet (without backing it up) 4) and then reinstall Bitcoin wallet again... it would not be the same wallet! You wouldn't have the coins you received in step 2, they would likely be lost forever. That's what I meant by "the same instance" of the wallet, but in retrospect, it's not a great way to describe it.
Very nice explanation

There should be an option of sending btc to a single easily remembered address I.e I tell everyone to send btc to 'Mathew' which then automatically creates a new public address (in my wallet) each time a payment is received. Similar to owning a domain name but routing to a different (dynamic) IP each time a payment (viewer) is received.

Nader Qarini (11 months ago)
The Cryptoverse amazing! Would it work if I download the wallet on PC, send the coins there, make 2-3 copies of this wallet and then put each on a USB (in case I lose 1 or 2 USBs) ...and delete off of the PC (so it's like paper wallet) or would deleting the wallet off the PC corrupt the whole thing? Im asking because I have like 30 different coins :, ( , and I don't know how to keep them safe. your help would be super super appreciated man 😊😊

How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
