DEFINITION OF SECURITY KEYS ON STEEMIT
Security keys on steemit are a group of letters, alphabets, and symbols created which are used as passcode in maintaining privacy of your account.
INTRODUCTION

The Private memo key:This is the key that is required for decrypting private transfer memos

6: The master key: As the name implies, this is a key that can be used as a substitute for some other keys to perform an action
