Sunglasses Crystal Multiflection Double Under Blue Mirror Down Ua Gold Brown Armour Shiny Dark What are the different types of private key formats that I can use to access my wallet?

The ETH is stored on the blockchain, your private key or Keystore File or whatever piece of information you have proves ownership of that ETH, which allows you to move it.

At the end of the day, you are always signing with your private key.

However, for additional functionality (like protecting it with a password) there are formats & ways of storing your private key:

MetaMask

Ledger or TREZOR or Digital Bitbox Hardware Wallets

Keystore File (UTC / JSON)

  • This is encrypted by the password you chose.
  • This is the recommended version to save.

  • Make sure to have multiple backups.

Mnemonic Phrases

  • Typically these come in 12-word or 24-words.
  • They can derive multiple addreses - meaning your phrase actually is able to create multiple accounts, addresses, and private keys.
  • Ledger, TREZOR, MetaMask, and Jaxx create these for you.
  • MyEtherWallet does not currently derive mnemonic phrases, but may in the future.
