Title: Is it possible to extract private key from Trust Wallet
Post by: rearwheels on September 18, 2019, 08:56:46 PM
Hey all. Recently I have started to use Trust Wallet. It is quite convenient. Does anybody know how to extract private key from it?

Follow the steps from this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQaMYZhsq6g). It seems that you can also backup the mnemonic phrase (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQaMYZhsq6g) for all the wallets.

It only works for imported wallets so you can't get the private keys of your adresses with this procedure.

If it wasn't an imported wallet, you just got the xpub keys of your wallet or its seed, you didn't get any "private key".

So if a wallet was created instead of imported you will be able only to restore whole wallet with seed and you cannot to extract for example private key for ETH.

Yes, as seed is much easy to remember than private keys. But if you want to get the specific private key of your wallet, you can get it using different tools, like  Mnemonic Code Converter (https://iancoleman.io/bip39/) by iancoleman. Or you can just import your seed to electrum, and export the private keys of the specific address using the wallet in the wallet tab

You're right, but
-Electrum is not a multi-crypto wallet
-Trust wallet is a mobile wallet and Electrum mobile version doesn't accept bip39 seed for the moment
-Iancoleman is a solution but it doesn't provide all the cryptos, for example you can't find BEP2 addresses(the Binance's crypto)
So how do you get bep2 private keys?
