Consider this example:

  • Suppose Bob wants to send 1 bitcoin to Alice. 
  • Bob will ask for Alice public key so that he can send bitcoins to Alice. 
  • Alice public key will work as an address to Alice. Bob will now encrypt his bitcoin using his private key and will be sent to Alice's public key. 
  • Bob's public key will be sent automatically as it will reflect as an address to bob. 
  • Alice can see bob Public key so that he can know Bob has sent him bitcoins.
