Bitcoin is a decentralized digital currency, which means that you do not have a Bitcoin account with a third-party entity. Unlike opening a bank account, a bitcoin account does not need to be registered, but is randomly generated. You can remember the bitcoin account number, but the bitcoin will not correspond to your physical information.

The basic principle of a Bitcoin account is key-public key-address, which can be roughly understood as "key-box-box number". The public key and address are equivalent to the bank card number of the Bitcoin account and can be sent to anyone. After a series of digital signature operations, the public key of the bitcoin account will get what is often called the bitcoin wallet address.

If someone wants to give you a bitcoin, you only need to tell it your bitcoin wallet address to send bitcoin to your wallet. It should be noted that Bitcoin is an immutable blockchain, all transactions are one-way, and once the transaction is successful, it cannot be withdrawn. If you send bitcoins to the wrong address, unless you can contact the owner of the bitcoin account and convince him to send you bitcoins back, you will lose those bitcoins forever.

That is to say, you have a randomly generated bitcoin account, and you need to remember its password, but since the bitcoin account does not correspond to the user's information, anyone can obtain the bitcoins through the password of this account. currency without the confirmation of any central institution. If you forget your bitcoin account password, then unfortunately, you will lose the bitcoins in your account forever, and you can never get them back unless you remember them again.

Therefore, there is also a special recording method. Some people will record the key-public key-address through a notepad with a password. If one day accidentally forgets the password, it can be retrieved in this way.
