I have a wallet's private key. Can I find the secret phrase/backup phrase through it?

Can I also find out what the other wallets in the wallet sequence would be?

1 Answer 1

  • you can derive a wallet private key from it's mnemonic phrase but you can not find mnemonic from a wallet private key
  • it's a key structure. each mnemonic gives you lots of addresses in different coins
  • Thanks for the answer. Suppose I have a wallet address. Can I also find the other wallets in the sequence even if I don't have the mnemonics?

  • no it's a one way road from mnemonic to wallets: imagine you want Ethereum wallet : wallet in index 0 is accessible in m/44'/0'/0'/0 wallet in index 1 is accessible in m/44'/0'/0'/1 This link will give you a better understanding iancoleman.io/bip39
