Why Shouldn’t You Share Your Bitcoin Password With Anybody?

Sharing passwords of any kind is unacceptable because that is entirely personal to you. You call it a password because it is confidential and you will have all your details stored on a particular account.  

Whether it is a simple email or a social media profile, your password should never be shared with any of your friends or relatives because they can easily access all your details and can even share it with someone else and that can become quite risky.

Bitcoin trading or blockchain technology is one of the newest trading sectors that has emerged out in the recent past. The physical currency that you have will be converted into digital currency in this form of trading, and your account details are going to hold all the information related to the selling that you do use the Bitcoins or the cryptocurrency. 

You will register yourself on one of the blockchain ledgers, and they would issue a couple of keys to you to maintain your account with them. One of them would be a private key, and the other one is going to be the Public Key. 

Private Key is given to you to handle all the personal details that are part of your Bitcoin accounts like your contact details, name and the transactions that you have done using the Bitcoins or the accumulation of the Bitcoin happened in your account.

The public Key is a standard key which would be issued to all the users that are part of the peer to peer Bitcoin technology on the blockchain ledger like BTC software. Using the Public Key, a trader gets to see the overall accumulation of Bitcoins of all the users globally that are registered on a particular blockchain ledger.

The public Key will be issued in general and it beautiful to share, however, the private Key is your account key and sharing that is going to cause a lot of problems which has been explained in this article thoroughly.
