Well, i guess it's not a private key anymore. You posted it to public. Just pray they won't see that. That's why it's called private. It mean that this is something that you don't want to see by public. In short, it is a secret mate. So if ever accidentally post your private keys to public. Kiss your bitcoins goodbye, that's over. Im just kidding. Just send all your funds from your wallet and send it to another wallet. But that's if they haven't find out that you posted your private keys. That's the only thing you can do. You must act fast before they gets your funds.

If you have posted you private key or if anyone has access to it, they can take all your Bitcoins. You must immediately move those Bitcoins to an address that is secure. Don't let anyone see your private keys. Once someone takes your coins, there is no way to recover them and there is no way to determine who took them (not that you could get them back anyway). You can make as many Bitcoin wallets as you want to and make sure you protect the private keys.

If you post your private key, anyone can take your bitcoin. Anyone can import the private key into a wallet, coinb.in, etc. to spend your bitcoin and it is not possible to reverse the transaction or recover your coins.

If you accidentally post your private key, generate a new bitcoin address (and save the new private key securely) and transfer your bitcoin from the compromised address to the new address immediately.

It's better you move it soon before unwanted thing happens, move it to another wallet and don’t repeat the same mistake.
Always careful and think about every action you take, especially when dealing with money. It's better to double-check than regret later.

This is a common mistake due to user's carelessness. Immediately move your assets from that wallet to another wallet before it looted by others. Save the private key and don’t repeat the same mistake, good luck.

Publishing your private key is very dangerous. You will be lost all of this address if it’s used by someone.
Because private key is your wallet , if you publish your private key, everyone can import your key to their wallet without passport.
If you have pusblished your private key, you should check your balance now and transfer your money as soon as possible. Smiley

If you post your private key in public place,people can transfer all of your coin in their account.You can do nothing.Need to secret private key.If you post private key in public then you realize what mistakes you do,you should transfer your coin to another wallet.Because you can not change your private key like reset.

of course yes, absolutely that someone who knows your private key and all you've stored on that wallet are soon to be lost. if just incase you accidentally posted your private key somewhere in public, make a new one wallet and transfer your fund on the other wallet to avoid of loosing your coins. and be careful next time.

what do you think would happen if you leave you cash on a park bench?

the same thing will happen to your bitcoin if you leave your private key on the internet somewhere. the more crowded, the faster it will go Wink






Thank you Sir, with these simplified words, I easily understood what will happen if that happens.
