For the trial period, you don't need to provide a key. 
You need Keys only for vCenter and for ESXi Hosts when you are considering them longer period.

I have downloaded and installed VMvisor 8.0 (x86 64-bit). The trial version shows 'You are currently using ESXI in evaluation mode. The license will expire in 53 day'. 

I haven't saved the license key generated during the installation. How to find my license key? Please suggest me a way out it.

You don't need a trial license key for the evaluation period.

If you need to extend the trial period then you need to purchase the key from the local distibutor
