I'm trying to generate a mnemonic seed, and everything that goes with that. I'm using c++ / libbitcoin, using the following code - https://github.com/libbitcoin/libbitcoin-system/wiki/Examples-from-Addresses-and-HD-Wallets

When I compile & run the following code - get this output

Address, WIF, Wallets: 

Mnemonic Word Lists: 
family episode combine ask flee weekend sword spatial vibrant leg style fancy

When I take that generated mnemonic and put it in this site - https://iancoleman.io/bip39/

I am getting completely different paymeny addresses.

Digging through the source code of libbitcoin it has very little function documentation & this is the only code sample I could find. So can someone help me generate a wallet in libbitcoin where the data is recognized by other wallets/services? Thanks.

The address 13ggzjqKyFGQZtxNWUoG4BFDPAgdBijUe4 is generated from a different word list, not the one you mentioned.

  • How can I verify that in code - in libbitcoin how do I generate addresses from word lists?
