If you import a mnemonic and find that the generated wallet address is a new wallet address (inconsistent with the previously expected wallet address), there may be three cases that need to be checked one by one.
- The backup mnemonic is not the address of this wallet.
Because ET Wallet can manage multiple wallet addresses. Suppose you have two wallet addresses A and B. In the backup, the mnemonic of the A wallet is incorrectly assigned to the address of the B wallet, which will cause the import of the B wallet, but the import of the A wallet is a mnemonic, so The resulting address is the address of the A wallet, not the address of the B wallet that you want to import.
Ps: You can back up the corresponding wallet address while backing up the mnemonic to avoid such problems.
- Mnemonic transcription error
Another possibility is the mnemonic transcript error. If the transcript is wrong, there will be a small possibility to generate a new wallet address.
- Path setting problem
In addition to this, it is also possible that you have set the path. Generally, when importing a wallet, the default path can be used. It is theoretically feasible to set the path by itself, but it will increase the difficulty of backing up the wallet.
