This page is intended for developers and people who would like to deep dive in IoTeX wallet knowledge. Please be careful if you extract private keys manually.

HD derivation path means hierarchical deterministic wallet derivation path. It is a way to derive multiple accounts from the same mnemonic seed.

IoTeX uses m/44'/304 as its HD path. You can view all HD paths for all coins here:

If you use mnemonic seed and HD to derive wallets, m/44'/304'/0'/0 is the 0-th wallet for IoTeX Wallet and m/44'/304'/0'/1 is the 1st wallet.

A full HD path is usually like this

m / purpose' / coin_type' / account' / change / address_index
