Private key and Security


If you don’t know or don’t own a private wallet key — You don’t own cryptocurrency. Access to the wallet should be without intermediaries.



To increase the security of your wallet, we recommend that you do not log in using a private key without the need to complete a transaction. You can also sign in using the wallet address to view the balance and transaction history.


The safest way to store a private key is to store it in a cropped form, and keep the missing part in your head.


Imagine that this is your entire private key:

Remember last 2 words:

prizm opposite crimson both shower precious hopefully here keep trace barely many upset give image scream movement peaceful reveal


Delete these 2 words — and store in this form on electronic media:

prizm opposite crimson both shower precious hopefully here keep trace barely many upset give image scream movement


(Don’t forget about SPACES between words — they are also part of the key)


When you make a transaction, you will need to copy and paste the first part of the private key and add 2 words from memory, taking into account the spaces.

Additional recommendations


  • Print the private key on paper, or write it by hand — put in a safe place, do not show the key to strangers.
  • Make an electronic copy of the key on a flash card or hard drive.
  • Store part of the key in notes with a password.
  • Do not enter the wallet with a private key without the need to complete a transaction.
  • Do not share your computer or phone with anyone else.
  • Do not use public Wi-Fi in cafes, restaurants, subways.
  • Observe hygiene of surfing on the Internet.
  • Do not install pirated software on your computer.
  • Set a complex password on your home Wi-Fi.
  • Use an antivirus.
  • Do not open electronic files in dubious emails or from strangers on the network.

Check the wallet address in the browser line so that you don’t get to the phishing site.
