I can not restore my wallet from Copay even though I have the 12-word. Is it a way to convert back 'manually' with an other external solution and get the private key? Is the 12-word key storage a universal thing, or only
Bitpay uses it?
If you are experiencing issues restoring your BitPay or Copay wallet with your 12 word recovery phrase, please check the following:
- Are you sure that the recovery phrase was written in the correct order?
- Did you use all lowercase letters and no punctuation?
- Did you add a password to your recovery phrase?
- Do you have the QR code or text/file backup?
- Did you separate each word with a single space (no commas or any other punctuation)?
Please also ensure that your words are all contained in the following list of possible words: https://github.com/bitcoin/bips/blob/master/bip-0039/english.txt
