Elements of a conventional crypto wallet include the private key, the recovery phrase, and the wallet address.
- Private key: certificate of initiating a transaction from the wallet. The one who knows the private key controls everything in the wallet.
- Recovery phrase: a series of words that helps you memorize the private key in creating the wallet. The recovery phrase can be treated as the private key - one can regenerate the private key from the recovery phrase.
- Wallet address: the public key. The publicly visible identification of a wallet address.
