# Note Plaintexts

Plaintext notes contain:

• the value to be transmitted which consists of an integer amount along with a scalar (32 bytes) identifying the asset.
• the note blinding factor , a scalar value, which will later be used when computing note commitments.
• the destination address, described in more detail in the Addressses section.

The note can only be spent by the holder of the spend key that corresponds to the diversified transmission key in the note.
