Is there any entity in the blockchain that maintains record and manages public/private key pairs of all the users?


1 Answer 1


No, there isn't. Bitcoin has no central management of anything at all.

Public keys are pseudonymous and in general it may not be possible to identify the user to whom a public key belongs. A private key is kept by the user who generated it, and typically is never revealed to anybody else.
