Upon inspection with sqlite, wallet.sqlite3 has following tables: balance dbversions keysets proofs seed balance_used invoices nostr proofs_used. As a wallet holder, do I need to back up the file or is the mnemonic phrase enough for backing up my ecash tokens in nutshell? If just restoring from the mnemonic is enough, does it also apply when the user has ecash in many CASHU mints?

P.S. The question pertains to ecash, CASHU protocol, and to Chaumian mints and not to any scamcoins.

1 Answer 1


After experimentation that included deleting .cashu/ I can confirm that I am able to restore the funds just from the mnemonic phrase.
