KMS - Mnemonic seed phrase and derivation paths

Modified on Tue, 10 Jan 2023 at 02:08 PM

Tatum Wallets use specific Mnemonic derivation paths per chain. These derivation paths are the same for API requests and KMS. Additional information is available at the following link.


For each endpoint that generates a wallet, the derivation path is mentioned for Mainnet.

  • Example: Generate Bitcoin Wallet 

    Tatum follows BIP44 specification and generates for Bitcoin wallet with derivation path m'/44'/0'/0'/0. Additional information on BIP44 HD wallets can be found at the following link.


Customers that want to import addresses generated from Tatum API and or KMS may be mindful of other Wallet services like MetaMask using a different derivation path.
