What is my Maker address for?
Your Maker address is similar to your bank account number. If you want to receive Maker from someone, you shall provide them your Maker address.
Is it anonymous?
Yes, Maker is anonymous in the mean that it is not registered with your name, phone or email so no one can know who you are. However, balance and transactions are public. If you share your Maker address with someone else, they will be able to see such info.
Is it always the same?
Yes. A Maker address is fixed. It never changes and never expires. However, you can create unlimited wallets (each with a different address) and use one or another at your sole discretion.
What is the private key for?
The private key is similar to a password. It is the key to access your funds. Only with your Maker address, you can receive Maker and check your balance and transactions, but if you want to transfer your funds out to another wallet, you need your private key.
Can I change it?
No. A private key can't be changed. A private key and address combination is unique and it is generated with a mathematical algorithm. However, although a private key can't be changed, you still can create another new wallet, which will have a different private key.
Is it safe enough?
Hell, yeah! A private key is a 256-bit number. This means that it is represented in binary in 256 numbers of 0 or 1. There are a total of (almost) 2^256 combinations of private keys, or 10^77, which is the same. This is 10 followed by 77 zeroes! Even with the world's most advance computers working together, it is impossible to crack a private key.
How can I check my balance and transactions?
All Maker transactions are stored in a public ledger. Anybody can see the balance and transactions of any wallet (even if not their own). However, they are anonymous. No one can know who owns a wallet or who they send or receive Maker from. You can use any Maker Explorer to see any address balance and transactions. For example:
How do I use an explorer?
A Maker explorer like the one we have linked above it is like a public database where you can search any address' balance and transactions. Simply visit their website and paste your Maker address on the search form. Then, the explorer will retrieve all info related to that wallet: current balance, total amount historically received and sent, transaction history, among other things.
Can I do it private?
No. You can't hide your balance and transactions. Anybody who knows your address can see them. If you want to protect your privacy, simply don't post your Maker address online and create always a different wallet and never use the same more than once.
How can I send Maker out?
Simply import your Private Key to any Maker Wallet service and you will be able to manage your funds from it. However, beware of the risk involved on writing your private key. Do not enter your private key anywhere if you don't intend to use your funds.
