Private Key (Wallet Import Format)
Copy the Bitcoin Public Address
above, and paste it into the
Bitcoin address shortener
to give it a custom name for public sharing.
: The green
share Bitcoin address on the left is your Public bitcoin address. This is the address and QR code you can share freely with the world to accept bitcoin payments with. The red
secret Bitcoin address on the right is your Private bitcoin address. A private address is to be kept secret and not given out to anybody. Think of it as your secret password for your Public Bitcoin address.
You can print this page and it is encouraged to keep both your Public and Private Bitcoin keys offline for safe-keeping. If you lose your Private key, it can not be retrieved. If you leave this page, both keys will not be retrievable. You can only generate new ones from here.
The purpose of this tool is so that you can generate Public and Private Bitcoin addresses for use. To manage your funds on your Public address, you will need to open a Bitcoin wallet. You can open a free wallet
on Blockchain.info. To import these addresses to your Blockchain.info wallet, click on Import/Export. Use the Private key on the right to import this address to your wallet.
