Can I Recover My CoolWallet Seed To Another Wallet? (What BIP protocol does CoolWallet use?)

All the seeds generated from the CoolWallet (Number / Word) adhere to the BIP-39 protocol.

We transfer the English mnemonics into numbers so the App can help to verify the correctness of the seed quicker. This also allows you to perform a simple addition question to verify the correct seed. If you need to convert the number-seed to word-seed for the recovery on other wallets, simply look up in the mapping table below, find the corresponding English words, and type them in the wallet you wish to use.

However, with the usage of P2WPKH-nested-in-P2SH (BIP-141 - SegWit) transactions, it is necessary to have a common derivation scheme (though it allows the user to use different HD wallets with the same master seed and/or a single account seamlessly). Thus, if the wallet created uses dedicated segregated witness accounts, which ensures that only a wallet compatible with BIP-49 will detect the accounts and handle them appropriately.

CoolWallet is an HD (Hierarchical Deterministic) that uses the BIP-44 derivation path to derive the public keys. Then we use BIP-141 (SegWit) to convert the public key to a SegWit address. Thus, your SegWit accounts (BTC/LTC) may not be detected when you recover the seed on BIP-49 supported wallets or vice versa. If the 3rd party wallet, supports the same protocol as the CoolWallet, then wallet data can be recovered interchangeably using the same seed. 

In case you are unable to find a wallet, which supports the same protocol, please refer to the recovery guides below:
