Crypto Investing #36 – Bitcoin & Cryptocurrency Wallets Explained – By Tai Zen

    So when I use a wallet, it is an entity on that particular block chain ? or somewhere else?  If these wallets are on block chain , In that case I do have one wallet for Bitcoin, another for ethereum, another for Ripple (at their respective block chains) ? or it is just one wallet which is holding my all type of currencies?  If it is just one wallet holding my all currencies, then where does it exist? ( In this case I am sure it is not on block chain)

  3. Hi can you just explain something. If I have an account at an exchange with USD then I buy some bitcoin through them, so my bitcoin is in the market do I still need a wallet as I am not having bitcoin just sitting in my acct at the exchange? Or is it even when the bitcoin is in a trade or in the market the details are held at the exchange so I still need a wallet because the bitcoin isn't actually in the exchange. Sorry but its really confusing for first timers. So for example if I have purchased bitcoin through coinbase already if I now get a bitcoin wallet does my bitcoin access then move from the exchange wallet to my own wallet? Hope that makes sense.

    I'm New To Cryptocurrency, So I'm Trying To Get Understanding On Whether You're Still Making Or Generating Money While The Coins/Tokens Are In The Wallet Since They Have Been Taken Off Of The Exchange And If Not Why Put Them Into The Wallet If The Point Is To Make/Generate A Return On Investment!!??!!

  5. Your pop quiz of asking who has control over your wallet if it's sitting on Kraken or poloniex makes no sense. Not all exchanges' wallets will necessarily work the same and you didn't talk about kraken or poloniex, only coinbase…so how could you have expected him, or any of us to know that? At best, we could just assume it's the same, but that doesn't mean we actually know it's the same, and it certainly doesn't mean that we SHOULD know that they're the same.

  6. Umm…trusting someone to not steal your bitcoins (coinbase) pretty much IS the honor system…why did you say no it isn't? You effectively contradicted yourself. You basically said, "no, it's not based on trust" and then 10 seconds later, "yes, it is based on trust"…more or less that's what you said.

    Really need to explain the difference between passwords for authentication and private keys for decryption when your explaining who has control of the wallet.

    Private Keys and Password are 2 different things. That's why he's confused. You called private keys password. I get it, but I get why he's confused too.

    Hmm … there seems to be no explanation of who holds the money that backs the digital currency. Because as of today, isn't that how bitcoin gets its liquidity?

    Also, you did not mention that when your physical (i.e. phone, computer, processing device) wallet is held/stored locally, "who is holding the cash – liquidity" i.e. exchange holds it when its there, online wallet – coinbase – holds it when its there, but what about – who holds those funds?

    My thought is that It would have to be either Coinbase or the Exchange … right? Because Blockchain, I'm sure, does not hold cash in its servers or the blockchain? I'm sorry, but it doesn't make complete sense as explained.

    Would this be considered an example process?
    1). Coinbase acts as a merchant/financial escrow company < like moneygram, western union
    2). You make a request to CoinBase to Buy Bitcoin
    3). On your behalf, Coinbase sends a payment request to your bank for cash/money.
    4). Coinbase receives an okay/approval you have the cash/money
    5). On your behalf, Coinbase buys "Bitcoin" from an exchange – marking it up slightly to collect a fee
    6). You now have "Bitcoin" in your account backed by cash/dollar/fiat currency
    7). You now request CoinBase, on your behalf, to send "Bitcoin" you have in your wallet to an Exchange, Poloniex in this example
    8). On your behalf, CoinBase sends the "Bitcoin" and "Fiat" currency to the Exchange
    9). Poloniex, now holds your "Bitcoin" and the "Fiat" currency
    10). You make trades, and these trades are all accomplished digitally
    11). You now make a withdrawal request to Poloniex and on your behalf, send your "Bitcoin" to your wallet.
    12). Therefore, as of now it seems to me Poloniex still holds the "Fiat" currency value and not "" because you cannot request cash withdrawal from ""
    13). However, if you transfer to an entity, (e.g. Individual buyer for Cash, CoinBase which sells to a Buyer), it seems that the "fiat" currency would have to be with "CoinBase" the whole time OR remains in the Exchange, Poloniex, at all times after the first transfer (e.g. Coinbase to Poloniex). But because you have the digital currency, you could add it back to the exchange and get "cash/Fiat" currency for it. Therefore, again, the exchange holds the "fiat/Cash? currency. **

    ** It would be great if anyone could confirm that this is how the transfer of "Fiat" currency works


  41. Great video, however, I do not understand why I should use a service such as coinbase. I cannot see any advantages 🙂
