I have a cold storage where I installed BTC-Electrum and LTC-Electrum wallets. So I have took extended master public keys and have generating addresses in my online service. Now I want to generate addresses for Ethereum but how can I understood the electrum core doesnt give xpub. So I need to use any wallets like MetaMask or MyEtherWallet. But I can not found how can I took xpub from those wallets.Can somebody help me to solve this problem? Thanks!


Ethereum doesn't necessarily have a concept of xpub, but rather they use a private/public key pair.

To achieve what you want, go on a service like MyCrypto, click "Create Wallet" and follow those steps. This will generate you a private key, which you can use for your interactions with the Ethereum blockchain.

  • I think that using private key is not secur for me. I want to have offline services in my local machine, took from there master public keys and in my online service generate addresses. So using private key in online machine is not secure I think. Is there a wallets for ethereum like electrum ? – Yur Gasparyan Oct 18 '18 at 7:43
  • Did you find out how to generate addresses from an xpub ? – f4r4 Mar 30 '19 at 12:56
