Welcome, Welcome to One Minute Crypto! I'm your host, Chronos, and today we're going to discover just how lucky you have to be to keep your bitcoin secure You may not realize this, but the bitcoin network depends heavily on the concept of luck just to work properly
I've met a few people who tell me that "luck" doesn't exist, so here's my challenge to you: steal my bitcoin What do I mean? Well, basically, bitcoin is secured by private keys, which are really large random numbers Whoever has the private keys to the bitcoin has the ability to spend the coin Right now, that's just me for my coins, by why not get lucky and guess my keys for yourself? Your odds are 1 in 2 to the power of 256 That's 1 in 2 times 2 times 2 times 2 times 2 times 2, 256 times
I can't even imagine a number that big In other words, your odds are not good But here's a neat trick: the website https://bitaddressorg will generate a random key for you, based on the way your mouse moves around the screen If you exactly copy the way I moved my mouse when I created my wallet, you'll get my bitcoin
Good luck So you're telling me there's a chance YEAH!
