Technically, it should be always possible to restore an Electrum wallet from the seeds. I know it can be done via GUI, from the New/Restore wizard.

Let's say if we are to put this wallet a machine where GUI is not available, or too cumbersome to set up. In such case, I wonder if it is possible to restore a wallet from the seeds.


  • Is it possible to restore a wallet from seeds at command line?
