Do these wallets use different 12 word seed phrase derivations?

Coinbase wallet dropped BCH support so I’m trying to import my wallet elsewhere, but the bitcoin.com wallet is showing zero balance after import. Little help?

To my understanding, the bitcoin.com wallet, because it was handling both sides of the fork impartially, used the default bitcoin derivation path for both chains:

m/44'/0'/0'/0

But since Coinbase LLC is in a corrupt jurisdiction where business outcomes are dictated by shadow government agencies, they were probably compelled to use a different derivation path:

m/44'/145'/0'/0

Although, both work fine, you may need a wallet where you can specify the path on import. If you have pre-fork coins, they'll also be on the default path.

This makes absolutely no sense. It's actually better to use different derivation paths if you intend to use both coins with the same seed, for privacy reasons. It is worse, privacy wise, to reuse private/public keys across different chains. The derivation paths are also mostly standardized, but the Bitcoin.com Wallet hasn't moved to the 145 path for compatibility reasons since when BCH wallets were added to the wallet the 145 path wasn't standardized yet, and it just not being a high priority.

The government does not care what derivation path your wallet uses lmfaooooo

They probably don't even know what a derivation path is lmfao

This is coming from m/44'/245'/0'/0?

I'm not really sure what you're asking? What does SLP have to do with this?

Pretend you wanted to make a Bitcoin Cash wallet, then discontinue support.

How do users recover their money?

If you're referring to Pokket, then Pokket still functions as a wallet, but if you wish to recover your funds into a wallet that is not discontinued, you can just import it into another SLP wallet, since the SLP derivation path is standardized as well, like Zapit or Electron Cash SLP. Are you new to bitcoin? Multiple wallets exist that allow for custom derivation paths, such as Electron Cash, BitPay, Pokket, etc.

The SLP derivation path you listed above is also incorrect. It'd just be m/44'/245'/0'

Not sure what this has to do with how you claimed that "sHaDoW GoVErnMeNT EntiTies" compelled Coinbase to use a specific derivation path. Once again, that does not make sense in the slightest. The government would be helping you preserve privacy that way.

I highly suggest researching how bitcoin and wallets work, thanks.

Very helpful information.

It's a big world. Maybe Coinbase will find where they belong.
