Overwriting owner keys

Once again, I must say Anchor is a fantastic tool!
My Questions:
What if I change(overwrite) my owner key?
Is the old active key able to control some transactions?

May I create a new account with the old keys?


Hey there - yeah, your owner key can be changed like any other, if required. It’s one of the more dangerous things you can attempt to do on your account but it’s possible.

If you change your owner key (just the owner key), the active key(s) that exist on the account will continue to work as normal. It can still sign transactions.

You can re-use old keys, and you can use the same key for multiple accounts if you wanted. Just be sure those keys are safe!
