Blockchain Wallet ID

John asked 3 weeks ago

I have spoken to several people who claim to mine BTC using S9 Antminer. Some are obvious scammers when they ask for complete access to your Blockchain wallet.
But when they only ask for the Wallet ID and no other details such as password, is it safe giving them this?
Considering they will not have your password and 2 factor enable.
The story is they need the ID to configure your wallet into their miner.

Hi John, you can share the Bitcoin wallet address with others as that is publicly available on the blockchain. What you always need to keep in secret is the private key. Here you can read more about how to setup an Antminer.

 Is private key the same thing as wallet identifier?
