Currently I have a 12 words passphrase that I use over some wallets like
metamask, I want to use the same 12 words on
yoroi only allows me to use 15 or 24 words.
- I was under the impression that
bip39standard, why I can't create a wallet with only 12 words?
- What is the technical limitation that prevents yoroi to use 12?
- Is there an existing way (without coding it myself) to transform my 12 words into 15?, or 24?, assuming that 12 word passphrases are just 12*11=132 bits of entropy (128 bit entropy + 4 bit checksum) [reference here]
I want to avoid creating a new wallet entirely and now having to backup 12+24=36 words for reasons out of this scope.
(like for example I already etched the 12 words in metal using carbon atoms and I don't want to do it again because is expensive).
