I want to understand. I do not want to make money from mining.
(I have a server without a GPU)
I have done the following:
I have downloaded, created and installed bitcoin source code from github.
It seems to work because I can interact with bitcoind with the bitcoin-cli command.
I know that this is not a good practice, but I want to "see" my private key.
I've read several documentaries and tutorials and they said I need to generate an address first and then call the dumpprivkey method.
$ bitcoin-cli getnewaddress xxxxxxx $ bitcoin-cli dumpprivkey xxxxxxx
I do not understand, but if I repeat this process twice, I get 2 different private keys.
So that's not the private key I'm looking for … What are these private keys?
