  • Trustwallet restore on Ellipal?
  • The Special Last Word of a Seed Phrase
    Try it for yourself. Type any 12-24 words (obviously not your own seed) from the BIP39 wordlist in, it will most likely give you an error stating it is invalid.
  • Cold Wallet from Amazon
    You can generate your own private key using an independent source like this one, and then use that in your hardware wallet.
  • Private Keys???? | 2021-10-10
    Hello you can use the Iancoleman tool to derive your private key.
  • I generated my BIP-39 seed one bit at a time by adding up five dice.
    This is very similar to what I did. Something I recommend doing: Save as a standalone HTML file to a USB stick or microSD, boot up TailsOS again, and open the HTML file in Tor Browser (offline) to double check that your seed phrase is valid. Check the master public key and the first five receive addresses as well.

  • quick question : BIP39 seed phrases can support 10 different wallet addresses, i wish to import all 10 wallet addresses linked to one seed phrase in trust wallet, how do i do that? | 2021-10-10
    Well, I'm not sure why it's only 10 when thousands can be open with different derivation paths. It's still unclear to me what you are up to! We support one address restoring only which match with our wallet derivation path. You can use though if know the derivation path of other 9 address to find the PK.
  • The phishing website and domain
    Based on the github link included, you can see that the legitimate looking website is, while is just similar looking. Not that I'd trust entering or generating your seed words on any website. Although if you absolutely had to, ironically, taking the scammer's advice and running a saved version of the website offline would have helped.
  • This morning I woke up and was signed out of my Coinbase wallet , when I signed back in using my recovery phrase email and password it put me into a whole new account with no money , I have over 200,000$ in my account and on etherscan it’s saying it’s still there. Please help!!! | 2021-10-07
    Hey man, save this page as html than disconnect from internet or use this HTML file on a computer that is not connected with internet. | 2021-10-07
    I tried a recovery also with a seed generated by myself as input, but in the end tested recovery with a seed key created via, as then the seed would at least be a valid one with a correct checksum word. With that randomly generated seed I could recover an as expected empty wallet. So the recovery by itself works I guess. Simply tried&done for the heck of it... nothing more. | 2021-10-07
    That's not the case for Bitcoin. I just setup a wallet, took those seed phrases, inputted them on Ian Coleman's BIP39 tool and the address derivation matches. Meaning you can take those seed phrases and take it to any other Bitcoin wallet and be fine. If this is the case for Bitcoin, I would assume it works similarly for other coins.
  • Bitcoin Universal wallet recovery, missing word | 2021-10-07
    The mnemonic recovery tool isn't showing the correct address because there's a different derivation path for Ethos. Download the BIP39 tool (, switch to the BIP32 tab and use as BIP32 derivation path:
  • Old seed derivation recovery. | 2021-10-07
    The offline version of this helped a lot. The link to the github download was at the bottom of this page. I downloaded the offline version and plugged in my seed phrase. Bingo. All the private keys to the address I needed and more.
  • Think somebody can guess or accidentally get your seed phrase? Nope, and I’ll prove it with free money. | 2021-10-05
  • How to sell XCP SOG cards... without a vault
    Also it might be necessary to extract the exact private key for your particular address using e.g.: Use offline and at your own risk!
