Hello Everyone.


I am going to ask a question that may seem like a silly question.

Does the public key and the private key have (from a technical point of view) a proper name?   Huh Huh Huh Huh Huh Huh Huh Huh Huh

The "public key" and "private key" are proper cryptographical names.

However, addresses are often confused with public keys. An address is actually a hash of the public key, normally Base58-encoded.

OK.

¡"Public Key" and "Private Key"!

Thanks.


I have one less doubt.
