Can't find private key
« on: February 12, 2015, 08:07:12 AM »

Well this is embarassing...

Where on a Linux Ubuntu 14.04 distribution would the scripts store your private key? I tried to dump my private key, but I'm getting a "key not found" message from the web client...nothing has been erased to my knowledge....what can I do. I sure as hell would not like to put a new registered name on the blockchain...

Never mind...think I figured it out. Am I to understand that TITAN gives you essentially 34 different keys that are all encrypted by the root password?

Basically you have just one key per account ... the owner key .. from that key people sending you funds derive a stealth key/address .. a new thing ... you can derive the privkey from the owner key that can access the funds sent to you through TITAN ..

All those derived keys are stored in the wallet and encrypted by the passphrase!

Hmmm...intriguing but very puzzling. I'm just trying to see why there seems to be 34 keys on my json page.

Each account has at least an owner key and an active key--and incoming stealth transfers are derived from the active key.

I'll have to read more. Very interesting. But again. Also very puzzling.
