Wallet Basics 101
A “wallet” is basically the Bitcoin equivalent of a bank account. It allows you to receive bitcoins, store them, and then send them to others. There are two main types of wallets. A software wallet is one that you install on your own computer or mobile device.
Every bitcoin wallet has 2 elements
1.Public Address: This is like an email address. You can give anyone your public address and they could send or pay you at that address.
2.Private Key: This is like your password. This private key you should never give to anyone.
When you're on the receiving end of a Bitcoin transaction, it is advisable to generate a new Bitcoin address each time. To do this, go to your Blockchain Wallet and click on Receive Money. On the bottom-right, click on New Address. Make sure to label the address so you know what it's for
Transactions - private keys. A transaction is a transfer of value between Bitcoin wallets that gets included in the block chain. Bitcoin wallets keep a secret piece of data called a private key or seed, which is used to sign transactions, providing a mathematical proof that they have come from the owner of the wallet.
Your bitcoin address could be easily traced back to you, landing you in very hot water. The main problem with Bitcoin anonymity is that every transaction is publicly logged by design. Anyone can view the flow of Bitcoins from address to address in the blockchain.
