Construct Your Own Recovery Phrase

Keystone support constructing your very own recovery phrase. Users can select the first 23 words from the official list of 2048 words(Github). Keystone will calculate the 24th word.

I. Important Notes

1. This is an advanced feature. It’s not recommended for crypto newbies.

2. Please make sure the approach that you select the first 23 words with is random enough. e.g. Printing all the 2048 words on a piece of paper, and then using a pen to blindly spot 23 words randomly, is considered insufficient and will surely lead to the loss of your funds. The methods mentioned here can be used as references.

3. The algorithm implementation of how Keystone calculate the 24th word is the same as in, so users can verify the result with Seedpicker.
