What is Public Key

A public key is a cryptographic code that enables users to receive cryptocurrency in their accounts. The tools needed to secure the security of the crypto economy are the public key and the private key.

A unique pair of a public key and a private key is established when a user conducts their first transaction using Bitcoin or an alternative cryptocurrency. Each key is made up of a protracted string of alphanumeric characters that work to protect a user’s assets in the digital environment.
