How To Keep Bitcoin In Your Head

First, it’s essential to understand what a seed phrase is. A seed phrase is a series of words that act as a key for your Bitcoin wallet. These words are generated by your wallet and are used to sign payments and recover the wallet in case you lose access to it. The standard seed phrase is 12–24 words long and is randomly generated, making it difficult to guess.

Now, let’s get started with the memorization process.

Memorizing Your Seed Phrase

N.B: However, it’s crucial to remember the order of the words in each group. If you remember the words but not their correct order, you won’t be able to access your Bitcoin. For the first group, “orange banana dog,” you could imagine a scene where an orange and a banana is falling on a dog. For the second group, “apple monkey sky,” you can picture an apple on the floor close to a monkey, looking up at the sky. For the third group, “plain water pizza,” imagine ordering plain water with your pizza at a fast food restaurant instead of carbonated soda. And for the last group, “elephant beautiful invoke,” picture an elephant majestically walking through a beautiful landscape and invoking a sense of awe.

By creating these vivid and unusual images, you can easily remember each group of words in the right order. And if you need to recall your seed phrase in the future, you can simply think back to the stories and images you created, making it easier to remember and access your Bitcoin.

Practice Memorizing Your Seed Phrase

To ensure that you can remember your seed phrase easily, it’s important to practice recalling it regularly. You can do this by reciting it aloud or writing it down from memory. Another useful tool is a mnemonic device, which can help you associate the seed phrase with a memorable phrase. For instance, if your seed phrase is “orange banana dog apple monkey sky plain water pizza elephant beautiful invoke,” you can use the phrase “One Big Dog Ate My Sky Pizza With Plain Water, Beautiful Elephant Invoked” as a mnemonic device. By linking the first letters of each word with a memorable phrase, you can enhance your recall and keep your seed phrase secure.

Creating a Song from your Seed Phrase Word Groups

Another fun and memorable way to safeguard your Bitcoin without writing it down is to embrace your inner music genius and turn your Bitcoin seed phrase into a catchy song.

Let’s take the example seed phrase, “orange banana dog apple monkey sky plain water pizza elephant beautiful invoke.” To turn this phrase into a song, you can break it down into four groups: “orange banana dog,” “apple monkey sky,” “plain water pizza,” and “elephant beautiful invoke.” For each group, you can come up with a catchy melody that fits the rhythm of the words.

For the first group, you could create a melody out of this sentence, “My orange and banana have been eaten by your dog. For the second group, you could sing, “Apples will rejoice when that monkey stops looking at the sky in this fog.  For the third group, you could sing, “But why on earth did the waiter serve me plain water instead of soda with my pizza? And for the last group, you could sing “Elephant, oh beautiful elephants, you invoke awe in me and Liza.

By repeating these groups and melodies, you can create a song that helps you remember your seed phrase. You can sing it to yourself whenever you need to access your Bitcoin, or even teach it to a friend or family member as a backup.
