Fun fact! Your chances of guessing someone's XMR secret key is approximately one in one thousand trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion

Your private spend key -- often called the "Mneomnic seed" -- is literally just a number. Simply knowing this number allows *anyone* to restore your wallet, see your history, and spend your funds! But what are the chances someone will guess your secret key? The [private key](https://www.getmonero.org/resources/moneropedia/spendkey.html) is a 256-bit unsigned integer, storing an [Ed25519 curve](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curve25519). The key space is therefore ~2^252 In decimal, that's approximately 723700557700000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 In scientific notation, that's ~7.24 x 10^75 In spoken English, that's a little more than seven thousand trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion. To guess someone's secret key, you need to guess the secret number, basically between 1 and this beast. EDIT: Thanks /u/sech1 for fixing my math :)
