I download the Ganache on Windows, it gives me 10 accounts and 12 mnemonics when I launch it, I think that the first 10 mnemonics are represent for 10 accounts, but what are the other 2 mnemonics "subway" and "mouse" represent for? I cant catch that...so can anybody help me about this? Thanks!

enter image description here


In fact those 12 words are 1 mnemonics used to generate those 10 accounts.

They are following the BIP 44 (Multi-Account Hierarchy for Deterministic Wallets) specification which is the same for a lot of blockchain.

You can see a bit more how it works here just enter your 12 words as mnemonics and see how are generated multiple accounts with it

  • so the mnemonic is made up of the 12 words? If only I remember the mnemonic, I can get the same 10 accounts, is that right? – Fly Apr 18 '18 at 16:08
  • Yup you got it. If you got metamask you can actually test this. Restaure your account using those 12 words. Connect to ganache using You'll see first only one account with 100 ethers and if you want to see the others you can "create" more account and they'll have 100 ethers too. – Crema Apr 18 '18 at 17:15
