During creation of my wallet, I was given a list of 12 words ("the seed") that I scribbled somewhere.

Let's assume that I lose all my storage, everything related to my wallet -- except for the seed.

Are these 12 words enough to recreate my wallet from scratch and regain access to my bitcoins?

Yes. If you specified one, the password is also necessary (e.g Trezor). It's worth knowing that the seed covers everything (on Trezor at least) such as the bitcoin (and other coins) wallet, the 2fa secrets, password store etc.

  • Hmmm I am not really sure that the password is also necessary, and I would actually assume it is not. But I haven't tested yet, so I do not know for sure. – fdierre Nov 29 '17 at 23:29

  • The password is used as the 13th seed word, so it would be required. – harrym Dec 31 '17 at 22:55
