Came across this post while researching, and it claims:
weary weapon unseen like like like like like like like like likeand this one:
sister glide dude near muse sent like like like like like likeboth produce the same binary seed (which is this in hex:
0x1003ca7a7000000000000000000000000) and they both produce the same address list (starting with
4/1000 number comes from this: (# of mnemonic permutations / # of binary seeds) - 1 == (1626^12 / 2^128) - 1 == about 4/1000. So about 4 in 1000 mnemonics correspond to two binary seeds / two address lists.
Can someone explain/verify the reality of this? Is this true? Applicable to only 12-words mnemonic or to all? Or not valid at all?
When I went ahead and tried to use the 12-word mnemonic provided, I found out that "weary" is not even a word in BIP39 English wordlist, but words are not chosen on the basis of security but rather to reduce human error in reading and transcribing the words. Does the claim hold up? And after reading tons of information on the subject, this is the first and only source that I have seen mentioned mnemonic -> seed collision.
