Private key

From Minter Wiki


Minter Private Key is a cryptogram that allows user to access the wallet. A private key is required to sign all outgoing transactions.

A private key is a number of 32 bytes or 256 bits long, which can be written in binary or 16-bit format. For convenience, the 16-bit format is usually used since in this format the private key is 64 characters rather than 256.

The private key is not displayed in Minter Console or mobile wallet. One can use Minter libraries in order to retrieve a private key from the seed phrase.
