12 words security


At first, 12 words are given, but we create BTC, ETH and other coin wallets afterwards.

Most importantly, why can’t the user determine these words?

As far as I understand, the coin wallets we created later can be found with an algorithm that works using 12 words.

The same algorithm works with Exodus, Coinbase as well.

If I understand correctly, is only 1 wallet defined for each coin? For example, if I create 2 BTC wallets, which one will be recovered or how can it recover both?

When I add a BTC wallet, I deleted it later and if I create it again, will it generate the same wallet key?

If the system works like this, for example I can’t add my paper wallet address, is it correct?

I want to create coin wallets by offline (without internet connection),
I want to save coin wallets on usd flash disk.
I just want to reload wallets while sending coins.

Can I use a trust wallet like this?

Hi, @mrcemotw

  1. you can learn how to create multi coin wallet here: How to Create a Multi-Coin Wallet

  2. If you create 2 BTC wallets every wallet will have it’s separate backup phrase. Learn how to backup here:
