No password during boot process for encrypted root partition

Hello! I have encrypted (LUKS) root partition on my Raspberry with Raspbian. I used this solution: "". During boot process I have to put password. It's normal but I don't want to. I was trying many instructions mainly "". I was trying also add option "cryptkey" to my "/boot/cmdline.txt" file. What is yours solution?

Why do you want to crypt your root partition without giving a password?
