  • How do I restore a backup to a software wallet?
    reddit.com/r/TREZOR | 2021-10-25
    There is good documentation for a range of vendors here https://walletsrecovery.org/
  • Can my seed phrase be transferred to a wallet of a different BRAND? or does it need to be the same brand (Nano Ledger)?
    Sometimes this will work. Sometimes it will not. Do not believe people who say "if the wallet supports BIP39". See the compatibility table here: https://walletsrecovery.org/
  • If an attacker stole a seed phrase but did not know which wallet software had generated it, how long would it take them to figure out the correct derivation path, etc?

    Different wallets differ on 1 and 4 from the list above! While almost all (except Electrum wallet) agree on "1", they still differ substantially on "4", as can be seen here: https://walletsrecovery.org/

    They kind of do have to know which wallet generated it. There are websites created exactly because some wallets handle the seed differently, so the process of recovery can vary (see https://walletsrecovery.org/)

  • Does every wallet provide a 12 word key for restoring?
  • Shared wallet in multiple apps?
  • Mycelium or BRD? BIP39 or is BIP32 fine? Segwit? Paper wallet? Localcrypto?
  • BIP39 seed phrases: their flaws and how to use securely

    BIP32 has multiple incompatible derivation paths. See https://walletsrecovery.org/

    If you use a BIP39 wallet, you need three components to recover the wallet: the seed words, the derivation path, and the passphrase. The derivation path is only to some extent standardized. If your wallet app uses an uncommon derivation path, you may have difficulty recover your wallet with a different wallet app. This is why you should also keep safe the name of the wallet software and ideally also the date/year it's used to create the wallet. This is so that you will be able to find out the derivation path. https://walletsrecovery.org/ has an unofficial list of derivation paths of various wallets.
  • Help
    https://walletsrecovery.org shows most derivation paths
  • Recovering BTC from different wallets
    Many wallets use different BIP32 derivation paths for deriving child keys from the root key. See the compatibility table at https://walletsrecovery.org/
  • Standard wallet and private key sweep in other wallet question.
    reddit.com/r/Electrum | 2021-10-08
    https://walletsrecovery.org/ shows for many soft-, hardware, lightning and combi sw/hw wallets what they support and links towards performing recovery.
  • Bitcoin wallet app

  • What would happen if a big company say like Coinbase was to go under or stop operations. And you had a wallet with Coinbase, would you lose all funds? Where can you securely put your funds and pass down wealth and such without the need of a company to allow you to hold. Same with ledger.
    reddit.com/r/Bitcoin | 2021-10-03
    There is a caveat here, that is that older wallets or devices were not so compatible. Fortunately, this website documents this: https://walletsrecovery.org/
