Hello Solana Community!
In this video, I give a visual guide on what is a seed phrase, also known as a secret recovery phrase (being a set of 12 or 24 English words), what is a private key, and what is a public address.
It is meant for a basic understanding, and you can research further for the technical things.
If you are super new to this, check out my friend’s video on what a blockchain is as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHybf1aC-jE&t=1s
My goal is to make things super simple as, for most, crypto is too difficult currently.
Where to get SOL
☆My Favorite Exchange FTX (Advanced beginner to Intermediate skills)

☆Exchange to buy SOL (can be purchased elsewhere too) https://www.coinspot.com.au/register?code=REFTVDJ78 (Referral $10btc for you and I)
☆ Twitter: https://twitter.com/SebMontgomery
VERY IMPORTANT: Always check ANY LINKS with official sources in case a scammer uses a wrong address, which happens always, or in case the youtuber makes a mistake.
