Active key is strictly for making more effective, sensitive task such as Power up/down transactions ,voting,converting STEEM dollars, transferring funds, updating profiles details and avatar also for placing market orders.
The Memo key comes to work when one wishes to encrypt or decrypt the memos that had been sent along with fund transfers.
