I'm on a new computer and I have 2 ETH addresses I created on parity in december 2017 and february 2018. Now I thought I followed the plan on what to do to secure the addresses but when I enter the 12 words Mnemonic in MEW and give the password, it claims the Mnemonic isn't correct. "Invalid Mnemonic".

Is it incompatible?

Greetings!

The old Parity phrases don't use the BIP-39 standard, used by many wallets, so it's not compatible. You can import your Parity phrase into the Parity Signer app and use MyCrypto in order to move your funds to a different address.

  • Thanks a lot for your help. I will try that. I already feared I have to wait until Parity synced. It ran the whole night and only became way slower with an outlook for weeks to wait. :D Hope it works out. – Sebastian May 20 '19 at 11:51

    I could test the two apps now. Works great. Best working ETH wallet yet. :D – Sebastian Jul 19 '19 at 22:16
