This aexpansion specify the derivation path used in the Aeternity blockchain for deterministic wallets
The aexpansion is meant to avoid incompatibility with deterministic wallet implementations across the Aeternity landscape and to make it easy for the derivation path to be found.
The derivation path (
m/purpose'/coin_type'/account_index'/change'/address_index') is therefore:
address_index are integer starting from
The coin type value for Aeternity,
457, has been generated on random.org and is registered in SLIP-0044.
