Recovery seed

Modified on Fri, 15 May 2020 at 10:23 AM

  • A recovery seed is a list of words in a specific order used as a backup for hardware and software wallets. It is a very large random number made easy to read.


  • Wallets use a seed to generate unique private keys. The same seed always gives the same private keys.


  • If the wallet has a problem, the seed is needed to recover it.  Without it, the wallet cannot be recovered.


  • “Seed”, “recovery seed”, “mnemonic seed” or “master seed” are synonyms.
