I'm trying to recover my Wasabi wallet. For some reason the 12th word of the 12-word mnemonic I wrote was wrong (not in BIP39 list). I could manually guess up to 2048 times, but was hoping there might be an algorithmic way to work through an array of the 2048 words and associate the result with my public keys for the wallet to find the right word.

I'm a newbie programmer, so any guidance on an approach to solve would greatly help and help me avoid a long manual slog. Thanks.

You will have to check up to 128 variants. Try this software: https://kzen-networks.github.io/mnemonic-recovery/src/index.html

  • Please be very careful before entering even key information into a random website, and make sure to review the code. Aug 14, 2019 at 12:04
  • Thanks for this suggestion & caution and I'll try it with the code on an air-gapped PC.

    This is almost a link-only answer. And the link is no longer valid (error 404) Apr 30, 2022 at 16:21

I suggest using the Seed Tool: https://bitcoiner.guide/seed/

  • We generally like answers to be a more elaborate here. Since the asker stated that he is a programming novice, you could for example further explain how the asker would use the tool to recover the missing word. Note that we generally remove link-only answers as low-quality.
