I’m able to generate a new private key and associated public addresses using bitcoin-core, but what I really want to do is generate a new private key from a 24 word seed phrase. I’m not sure how to go about this and I have not been able to find any examples.
BIP-39 Word list:
var bitcore=require("bitcore-lib"); var buffer=bitcore.crypto.Random.getRandomBuffer(256); var hash=bitcore.crypto.Hash.sha256(buffer); var bn=bitcore.crypto.BN.fromBuffer(hash); var pk=new bitcore.PrivateKey(bn).toWIF(); var address=new bitcore.PrivateKey(bn).toAddress()+'';
If I understand correctly I will generate a hash from 24 randomly selected words (from the BIP-39 word list) then use that to generate a private key. What are the steps and format for hashing the seed phrase?
