I decided to try out the Sparrow Wallet. Since Sparrow supports
P2TR I created one of each and verified that it was connecting to my Bitcoin Core node.
However, I only verified the connection to the node for the
P2WPKH wallet. Since the connection parameters are the same regardless of which wallet I am using, I figured it would connect just as well no matter which wallet I use.
I sent a small amount of bitcoin to a
P2TR Receive address. After a while I could see in a block explorer that the transaction succeeded. So I tried to refresh my Sparrow Taproot balance and it told me it could not connect to Bitcoin Core. It had been able to connect earlier, so I checked the log file.
The log file says:
Taproot wallets are not yet supported when connecting to Bitcoin Core
If I had known that earlier, I would have used a different transaction type.
So I tried to enter the same 24 words into the Wasabi Wallet, thinking I might be able to use the UTXO from there. But when I entered the 24 words into Wasabi, it told me the word list is not valid. I double checked it in Sparrow. It is the correct word list. [Edit: Apparently, I made two consecutive mistakes entering the word list into Wasabi. So they both do indeed use standard BIP39 word lists.]
Do Sparrow and Wasabi use different types of word lists?
How can I make these funds spendable if I only have the 24 word seed but the Sparrow Wallet that created the 24 words can't see the balance because the current version can't yet connect to a Bitcoin Core node?
