Using brain wallet is a very bad idea. You may forget passphrase, your short passphrase could be bruteforced, etc, etc.

All modern hardware and software cryptowallets are using BIP39 backup mnemonic phrases. But what if you can’t store this key in a safe place? What if you are living in the country where authorities may confiscate all your papers? For example on December 15,  2017 agents from the Ukrainian Security Service (SSU) confiscated approximately 305 ETH from Anatoly Kaplan, CEO of the Russian bitcoin news resource ForkLog. What if you are a refugee and could be subject to illegal rummage?

Sometime the best storage for your keys is your brain. But it is very difficult to remember 12 or 24 random words. That is why I developed Brain-to-BIP converter.

Using this tool you may always restore access to your cryptocurrency with any BIP39 hardware or software wallets like Ledger, Trezor,, Breadwallet, Multibit, Bitcoin Core, Jaxx, etc. Moreover the external enropy from your secret phrase is increasing security of your wallet.

Just enter your long strong secret phrase and “restore” wallet using generated BIP39 mnemonic.
Don't use short passphrases as well as popular sayings, parts of songs, poems or mantras! Use only long passphrases you can't forget.

Enjoy and be safe.
Thank you.
