Hi,

I'm looking for some anwsers that I can't figure out my self.

Type 1 deterministic wallet use SHA256(string + n) n=numbers of adress since creation to restore adresses.

Does a Type 2 hierarchical deterministic wallet the same? Just with a seed generated from 12 words out of a list and some mechanics to slow down bruteforce?

Hope someone can help me or point me in the right direction.

Thanks

The 12 word seed is used directly to generate all the private keys that the wallet will ever use. It works something like this: the first private key is generated by SHA256(seed). The second private key is generated by SHA256(first private key). The third private key is generated by SHA256(second private key), and so on ... but in reality, it is more complicated than that.

There is no need for "some mechanics to slow down bruteforce". Each word is from a list of 2048 words, so each word represents 11 bits of entropy, for a total of 132 bits. However 4 bits are a checksum so the actual entropy is 128 bits.
