I just created new Monero wallet and want to test if I can restore it with my 25 words seed. However, it always yields me error. What might be problem here?

My best guess is you didn’t Use the same application to create this mnemonic. I would advise you to convert this to a compatible one but why complicate things?

The purpose of your test is to see if you can restore the wallet so make a new Wallet and restore on another device/operating system. Problem solved.

Be sure they are both same releases. And you can use this strategy when recovering your wallet in the future.


I believe you should try restoring a wallet from another seed, one that is guaranteed to be valid (just peruse answer on stack exchange). Maybe you just copied the seed or typed it incorrectly? If there's a typo, then of course the wallet will throw an error.

Try restoring the seed below. DO NOT USE THIS AS YOUR WALLET SEED. Restore height can be the latest block or 0 if you want to test the time it takes to do a full restore.
