I created a wallet and got a spend key and view key. Then i imported that wallet into Monerujo and there i got a different view key and a different spend key.

I guess that's correct? It's kind of disturbing that there is not only one view / spend key.

  • How did you import the private key? It is a highly error prone process to enter 64 hexadecimal characters for the spend key, unless you use restore from the 25 Electrum words. – skaht Feb 27 '18 at 5:15
  • I entered the 25 words – Endogen Feb 28 '18 at 21:55

For deterministic wallets, you might want to use addresstests JavaScript-based code to examine a low valued Monero wallet.

Also examine results of the XMR C++ package script commands:

% echo "wipeout unnoticed origin timber corrode diet vats fences budget rotate iguana hive koala tuition shackles ticket fossil edited long beer shuffled lukewarm cogs atom hive" | ./inverse_mnemonics | ./xmr

Notice with sc_reduce32 normalization how two different seeds (represented as hexadecimal numbers or Electrum seed words) will result in the same set of spend keys, view keys, and the same address.
