Quick list of different key formats

Key forms that most people are familiar with are as follows:

BIP32 private key

xprv9s21ZrQH143K3RWN58voUFEwBGZ13SvQC4LL7acVMUN8H1ooHYSss9Cbg5HgHXbgGBDBxdXLkQ3YqCmLQj5RkEFsRMjL3ShEZigGKxet1xc
This is a base58 encoding. If you decode this key back to binary, the important bits are the chain code and key-data. They are at the following offsets
chain_code = xprv[13:45] key_data = xprv[46:78]
where xprv[45] is 0x00 for a private key and either 0x02 or 0x03 for a public key. You can experiment with this by plugging the xprv into the "BIP32 Root Key" section of Ian's BIP39 utility.

BIP39 Mnemonic

saddle celery child artwork learn dignity silver enable build mouse field fence
These can be (technically) any multiple of three words from 3 to 24. Electrum will also use a close relation to this form but the two are not compatible. The BIP39 form is used to encode the words into a number (entropy) which is hashed to create a BIP32 seed. You can experiment with this by plugging the mnemonic into Ian's BIP39 utility.

SLIP39 Mnemonic

best pink academic academic easel lying holy rumor injury crystal plastic fancy inform disease step artwork unfair client beyond demand
These are generally 20 or 33 words. The are used with a sharing algorithm to combine into a BIP32 seed. These are used by the Trezor HW wallets. You can experiment with this by plugging the mnemonic into the "Combine" section of Ian's SLIP39 utility.

WIF format

L16qq7YJMn4yZa5V252CsQ5oQ6QZnG81wxuK4kvu3Bbp7z2gewVk
This is a base58 encoding. If you decode this key back to binary, the private key is at wif[1:33] which encodes 128 bits of data. This is used by many wallet exports for a single bitcoin key pair. Bitcoin Core will also use this format to encode the BIP32 seed hdseed used in the sethdseed command. You can experiment with this by plugging the WIF into CoinBin's Verify Utility.

Raw BIP32 seed data

3ee3ac613e2e54f72d2e5de8b2489485
I've actually never seen a wallet use this form. It can encode between 128 bits (32 hex chars) and 512 bits (128 hex chars). This data is hashed to generate the BIP32 chain_code and key_data. You can experiment with this by plugging the right number of hex digits in the "BIP39 Seed" field on Ian's BIP39 utility.

Blockchain.com

79bc617e-8018-4a07-884f-82283013d35e
Technically this is called a GUID and encodes 16 bytes (128 bits). I have no idea how that company goes from there to an address.

A question about something in Antonopoulos' book

In his great book Mastering Bitcoin Andreas talks about Bitcoin addresses and how they are obtained from public keys, scripts, etc. But there is one aspect of it that doesn't seem to make sense to me.
Let's use the public key (call it K) case, where we want to derive BTC address from K. The process starts on p. 64 (2nd edition) with evaluating some hash of K. That hash is then prefixed with a version number and postfixed with a checksum. The result is then Base58-encoded.
Here is the problem: Andreas writes on p. 68: "The version prefix in Base58Check encoding is used to create easily distinguishable formats, which when encoded in in Base58 contain specific characters at the beginning [...]"
The implication (and the accompanying Figure 4-6) strongly imply that merely by manipulating the prefix (the version number bytes) the Base58 encoding will result in certain designated leading characters, like "1" for a public-key-based address or "3" for a script-based-address.
But this cannot be right, the version prefix simply does not offer that kind od control. (See an example below.) So what is really happening? My guess is the prefix like "1", "3", "xpub", etc., is simply added at the end by fiat [pun intended]. Is this what's happening?
An example: let's just assume for simplicity that the hash of some public key (20 bytes) PLUS the checksum (4 bytes) is simply 100...0 (i.e., 2192). Now add the version prefix denoting a public key hash: 0x00 in hexadecimal.
Now encode it in Base58: the highest power of 58 in the above number is 32 (assuming I did my math correctly), so the resulting encoding has 33 Base58 digits. Its leading digit is 23 (decimal), i.e., the character 'Q' in Base58.
So the leading character is 'Q', not '1'.
Last but not least (I should have said it in the beginning) a leading '1' popping out of the Base58 encoding would be weird because the character '1' in Base58 stands for zero. So it wouldn't be there to start with (no leading zeros).
OK, back to the studio.

[Idea] Bech32 encoding of private keys

Ever since I saw BIP-173 I was excited to see the encoding used anywhere other than addresses. I've done some search but apart from some comments here and there I haven't been able to find any major work done (please let me know if you know of any proposals). Here is my idea of addressing some of the problems with current encoding of private keys:

Using Bech32 encoding instead of Base58

While writing a private key recovery tool I've felt how hard it is to come up with an optimized algorithm to recover a key that is missing a couple of characters (eg. a damaged paper wallet). That is not true with Bech32 being a multiply of base-2 algorithm is inherently faster, and the checksum is not a bottleneck since it is not a hash algorithm. Bech32 also has the benefit of having error detection.

Script (address) type

Currently when a user imports/sweeps a private key in a wallet client, that client either has to explicitly ask user for the script type (like Electrum) which means user is exposed to complications and has to be familiar with script types; or the wallet has to construct all script types and scan the blockchain for all of them (like bitcoin core) which adds more burden on the client. If the encoding included a script type that becomes so much easier.

Locktime!

Another burden on both clients and users (specially full node users) is the time consuming need for a re-scan of the entire blockchain to find the historical transactions that belong to an imported key. A timestamp can make that process a lot shorter. Using locktime (similar to last 4 bytes of any transaction) the key string (aka WIF) could include either a block height or a date-time value of when the key was created.
This idea was added to Bitcoin.Net library as an "experimental" class. Direct link to the code
Here is an example with a random key from Bitcoin.Net KeyHelper class:
Original WIF (Base-58): L28Peud5cQcijrtMthAdUS8FynpM8PKZtnoUZb1VAio9WxKoebHt Key bytes (Base-16): 92734fe879f662ff8ee4eb87dd019425e2ee73ff3edd0c4dc3def2f71e1a6a69 Version byte (ie. the script type): 0x02 or P2WPKH Date UTC: 5/4/2020 7:11:05 AM H.R.P.: bprv New encoding (versioned Bech-32): bprv1zjfe5l6re7e30lrhyawra6qv5yh3wuull8mwscnwrmme0w8s6df5sns90tcqqzyen4e 
Note that key is encoded the same way an address would be encoded (version byte is added separately as a 5-bit value instead of 8-bit).

TIL: Bitcoin addresses do not contain "0", "O", "l", or "I" to prevent mistyping addresses.

When a Bitcoin Address is generated from a public key, the public key is first hashed using HASH160, then encoded into a Base58 number which is prefixed with an address type signify-er in the format of 0x00. The Base58 encoding removes the usage of the characters 0, O, l, and I because they can be easily mistaken for each other and could result in funds being sent to the wrong address.

Bitcoin address and private key in S04E08

Bitcoin address and private key in S04E08
Hello,
I didn't seen that posted anywhere so I will do it here. There was a bitcoin address in python code in last episode of Mr robot. As you can see on screenshot below. First is the public Bitcoin address which you can find here:
https://www.blockchain.com/btc/address/1MbwAEKJCtPYpLPxEkUmZxwjk63nQrpbXo
First transaction was +0.00013370 BTC :)
The second is probably private key, I didn't check it because someone (probably other viewer) transferred funds already but looking at length seems like a bitcoin private key (encoded using base58 check, also called Wallet Input Format). Anyway, nice easter egg :)

CSW: I am Satoshi Nakamoto. I created Bitcoin - [BitKan 1v1] Craig Wright vs Jiangzhuoer

Question 1: Both the BCH and BSV communities think that they are the true, original bitcoin from Nakamoto. What do you think was the original idea from Nakamoto?
**CSW:**My original idea is defined in white paper for no limits. And I also described this in the P2P Foundation. It is a distributed system. Users use it to connect to each other, and the miners, to stop double Spending. I explain this further late in 2010, I basically said that the network expands to have a number of nodes that become large data center type operations, because it's not about running nodes. People who run nodes are foolish unless that making money, that's it. When I created Bitcoin, it is a overlay network of the peer-to-peer network, the top of peer-to-peer network. We did peer-to-peer. Peer-to-peer means not what you send to the network, and then another user gets it by the network. That is outside the definition of peer to peer. That is a typical centralized mesh. Why Bitcoin works is that user Alice sends to user Bob,Bob received the transaction. So Bob wrote that he received it. He sent it to the network. IP to IP was one of the fundamental parts of Bitcoin that was removed by core right after I left, basically, I fix Bitcoin and I had the lay out in the first place. There's no question that what happened, and whatever else and what version of things Nakamoto wanted, because I am Satoshi Nakamoto. I created Bitcoin. Very soon, people will notice that. If you don't like it, I don't care.

Question 2. As the main witnesses of BTC to BCH fork, what do you think was the main reason for the fork at that point of time? Now what do you think about the fork at the time? Have you ever changed your mind?
CSW: There was a BCH fork away from Bitcoin, BTC added a number of things to make cryptocurrency more anonymous, which makes it illegal, which means the government can shut it down. Don’t ever believe the government can’t stop bitcoin. Government, the US government and Chinese government could stop bitcoin in a heartbeat. They are going to follow international law to shut down. The Liberty Reserve closed down involved 42 countries working together. It involved basically a distributive system of 10,000 different operations. Not Raspberry pie nodes because it is only 15 real BTC nodes, operators to ran money system. We can't work to unable governments to see machines. If the criminal use of bitcoin is to become anonymous that government can seize machines, can arrest people, can torture by law. The American government can enforce orders in China. So BTC wanted to make something that was not bitcoin. It wanted to change bitcoin further. So BTC split away from bitcoin. That's the fork. Bitcoin didn't change. I make sure we kept going. Jihan and Bitmain. I would like to have a talk about what we are planning, and the mining, we are building. Jihan and Bitmain, took the information to go into confidence and make sure that there was a fork. So this fork happened because Jihan and Bitmain are basically a bunch of lying stuff, and that would be found out later. The second fork was only last year. That was with BCH. Just to keep it simple. Bitcoin vary again. There’s no system of bitcoin is out to try to make it illegal, to make it criminal, to make it anonymous. Roger Ver, who helps from things like Silk Road and Charlie's friend money laundering operation, which Charlie's friend went to jail for. Other people like them that invested a lot of the dark websites, which all under investigation at the moment, which will be founded to watch in the next several years. People like Roger and even Jihan, wanted to use bitcoin to take the illegal money and transfer, they want it to be a dark web system. So they added extra objects to change the bitcoin further. They try to allow it to be more anonymous in a different way. So the simple thing is, there is bitcoin as I created, and there is bitcoin designed to be illegal and then it forks.

Question 3. Finally, can we invite Dr. Craig and Mr. Jiang to talk about each other's technology l and vision? What is the most worthwhile point to learn?
**CSW:**Sorry, I don’t look at those broken versions of bitcoin. I have no interest in learning about how people don’t want to understand bitcoin, how about you want to see the value and how they want to create the system or see these cryptocurrencies in the 90s. If people want to do that, that’s all their choice, but I am not interested in watching them go down in flames. Thank you.

Jiang asked CSW: You have ever wondered why there isn't a 0 in Base58 encodings. (Satoshi, the creator of Base58 explicitly took out 0 and O to avoid confusion). Why didn't you even know the Base58 encoding if you are Satoshi?
https://www.reddit.com/btc/comments/9apx40/professor_technobabble_wondering_why_there_isnt_a/
CSW: He's supposedly trying to mislead the audience by making out the checksum to pass off the transaction. He is basically trying to lie to the people and the audience, making them seen that I don’t understand bitcoin. If you look at why it works, the address was not part of the bitcoin. Bitcoin is a wallet, exchange peer-to-peer with the template. Basically, why does this work is that you have is a transaction that has a checksum to send between wallets. That checksum is a relevant. It never goes into the bitcoin network. The checksum is added only to ensure the transaction to the network while a wallet is correct. The original version of bitcoin didn’t eventually work that way. So what he is trying to mislead you is to say is what I don’t understand checksum etc., which is the lie propagate by people like Bitmain, where insists what it is you do a checksum of the code and then you hand it up. And the third part of this is very simply put. Without the checksum, the transaction sends to the network properly. The checksum is purely a wallet function, so you can add any checksum function and Wormhole would allow this work. Wormhole was an attempt to make an illegal system. Wormhole is another of these things because Jihan and the others wanted to take money out of China. They work with people to do money laundering, so the value that they see of bitcoin is to help money laundering. So they want to try and lie to people and make it that I don’t understand this technology, because they want to keep their money laundering scam going. So if you actually look at my posts, you will see that I've already explained the checksum in details. If you look at the work bitcoin transaction, you will see there has no transaction checksum. No one wants you to look at that because they want you to stay stupid and ignorant, because spending money out of you requires that you are dumb.

What is the technical format of the private key?

From looking at the paper wallet site here, it appears I need to enter 52 random alphanumeric characters of my choice.
That's all well and good, but as a test I tried entering 2222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222 as the private key. It generates an address, which is good, but it also gives me a 'WIF' key (L4kwmhymNmnnu9djVGAy9FZSP2Xbs56hsv1vHSHZvPxrNBmREAnC).

Base58 Encodings

Bitcoin (launched 2009, highly aligned w/ cicada ideals) makes extensive usage of base58 encodings - Liber Primus happens to be 58 pages long (Flikr also uses base58 for links). There could be an address associated w/ Liber Primus. Additionally, you can leave messages on the blockchain inside a transaction from that address. The EURion-like consellation also elicits ideas around money as it is used to prevent counterfeit (a key aspect of Bitcoin is no possibility of counterfeit). I am just a casual passer-by who followed awhile ago then saw the recent video. No idea what has been tried, and am not making and strict suggestions, just had an idea around 58 pages and base58, the ideals of the people behind it, etc.

Can someone please explain the relationship between the number of bits and the number of characters in a Bitcoin address.

According to Bitcoin Magazine Issue 9 "Crypto in Plain English":
"The public key is put through a hash function which produces a shorter 160-bit address that can be written with check digits and version information in a mere 27 to 34 digits, still long but more manageable."
To me, 160 bits / 8 = 20 bytes = 20 characters. Obviously, this is not correct. So:
a) How does one get from 160 bits to 27 - 34 characters (which I assume [correct me if I am wrong] means 27 - 34 bytes).
b) Why is the output anywhere between 27 and 34 bytes. Looking at my addresses in Electrum, they are all 34 bytes. Why the variation?
Thanks!

What happens if I SEND bitcoin to a LITECOIN receive address?

I'm curious as to what happens in this situation. Is the coin now on a malformed address? Is it possible to retrieve the coin? I'm curious as to how an accidental send of the wrong cryptocurrency could be resolved.
Thanks

So if you actually look at my posts, you will see that I've already explained the checksum in details. If you look at the work bitcoin transaction, you will see there has no transaction checksum. No one wants you to look at that because they want you to stay stupid and ignorant, because spending money out of you requires that you are dumb.

Why are there 1,461,501,637,330,902,918,203,684,832,716,283,019,655,932,542,976 public addresses?

I have read that there are 1,461,501,637,330,902,918,203,684,832,716,283,019,655,932,542,976 possible public addresses. This is based on 2160 (160 bits thanks to RIPEMD-160).
Here is what I don't understand. With RIPE there can be 256 options per byte (28).
However, Bitcoin uses only 58 numbers and letters due to Base58Check. So, rather than having a one in 256 option, it's one in 58. I would have thought that this would reduce the number of public addresses.
In general, my thoughts are that RIPEMD-160 uses the ASCII character set (256 characters) whereas Base58Check uses 58 characters.
Now, I suspect I am wrong. Could someone please spell out why I am wrong. Thanks!
