Question 
Hi guys,
I am new to blockchain, so I have a technical question, whether the Public key and Private key is all you need to save in case you loose access to your desktop or android wallet? Or we need to take regular backups for the wallet?

Regards Wink

private key is for you to access your wallet whenever, wherever. public key is the one you use for sending/receiving transactions .

thanks for you reply!

But, in case of PC format what happens to the core wallet? Can I restore my wallet with just the Private key again or do I need to take backup of desktop wallet to recover in case of system failure?

As long as you have your private key,
you could restore your wallet anywhere, you can even import it to blockchain web wallet based.
