Within the xx network block explorer, it is possible to create a child account using a derivation path. A derivation path can be any text used to mutate the account's seed (generally a mnemonic) to create a separate wallet. To recover the child account, both the parent account and its seed must be known.
Hard and Soft Derivation
When creating a derivation path, the path generally starts with either a
/ or a
//, the former signifying a soft derivation and the latter a hard derivation.
With a Hard Derivation, it is not possible from the account information to link the child account to the parent account (excluding metadata analysis). At the same time, it is possible to connect the two with a soft derivation.
For example, a hard derivation could look like
//banana while a soft derivation would look like
It is possible to derive accounts from derived accounts by chaining derivation paths. For example, in
//banana/broccoli, the hard derived wallet banana has a soft derived wallet broccoli.
Deriving a wallet
To derive a wallet, go to the accounts tab on the explorer and find the account you would like to derive from. On this account, you will click the vertical three dots button on the far right-hand side and select Derive account via derivation path, bringing up the following dialog requiring you to enter the password for your account.
Once the password for the parent account is entered, you will see the dialog to enter your derivation path and create the derived account. Enter a path and a password for the account.
