Learn how to see your private keys in your Dopamine App and import a new wallet.

Following the previous guide on restoring your seed phrase and finding the phrase in the Dopamine App, this guide further shows you how to display your private keys and import a new wallet.

If you have not read that, kindly do so here.

What are Private Keys? 

A private key is a large, secret, randomly generated number with multiple digits. They are typically portrayed as strings of alphanumeric characters.

Essentially, this secret number is an encoded seed phrase that acts as a password to protect users’ accounts and unlock access to the virtual vault that holds your crypto assets. 

An example of a private key is: 

B9873G79C6D87DC0FB6A5778633389F4453213303DA61F20BD67FC233EA33265

Its technical mathematical algorithm makes it nearly impossible for someone to guess, hack and steal your cryptocurrency.

Why should I keep my private keys?

A private key is the signature for claiming ownership of a particular cryptocurrency address. When you have access to this key, you own the power to transact and spend the assets attached to that specific address. Under no obligations should you share an individual or entity; I mean, that’s why it’s called a PRIVATE KEY.

On the other hand, Private keys are an integral part of every crypto’s security. For example, you cannot approve withdrawals and transactions without your private key. So basically, if a vicious individual ever has access to your private key, your crypto funds become compromised and can be stolen.

How do you ensure maximum security over your these keys? Generally, you can store them by copying them from the Dopamine App and storing it in a hardware wallet that uses smartcards or USB devices to generate. 

Most importantly, you can secure your private keys offline.
