    Not necessarily. There are a lot of incompatible wallets, and within BIP39/BIP32 there are variations between wallets https://walletsrecovery.org/
  • Seed and mobile hot wallet
    Maybe not. See the compatibility matrix at https://walletsrecovery.org/
  • Bitcoin noob here, wondering what experienced people recommend for a cold wallet? Ledger vs Trezor vs Coldcard etc?

    yes, generally trezor seeds/private keys can be used to recover your Bitcoin on other wallets: https://github.com/nvk/wallets-recovery

    This probably has something to do with the derivation path. From a quick google search, it seems like Bitpay is a continuation of the Copay wallet. From https://walletsrecovery.org/ you can see that Copay's derivation path is:
  • Re-creating/extracting Cardano wallet key pairs from a Ledger BIP39-mnemonic
  • Paper Wallet
  • Unable to recover seed phrase between different wallets
    A lot of wallets are compatible A lot of wallets are incompatible https://walletsrecovery.org/
  • Is Coinbase Wallet bip39 compliant?

    There's a huge BIP39 compatibility list (with derivation paths) at https://walletsrecovery.org/
  • Derivation path used by Blockstream Green + Ledger?

    I think it does for wallets that were created with Electrum, but it does not for imported wallets, so you might have to specify the derivation path when recovering from other wallets than Electrum. This is very helpful to figure out proper derivation paths: https://walletsrecovery.org/
  • Seed Phrases
    Sometimes yes, sometimes no. Do not assume See this compatibility matrix: https://walletsrecovery.org/
  • How does a mnemonic phrase restore an account on a whole new device?
    The derivation paths are more or less standardized. Some wallets use uncommon ones. https://walletsrecovery.org/ has an unofficial list of the derivation paths of some popular wallets. It's a good idea to write down the name of the wallet beside the mnemonic.
