I tried searching the topics, saw similar threads, but couldn’t get a straight answer.
This seems as though it should be straightforward, but it’s not.
I had 100+ BAT. I got a new computer, then restored with the “recovery key”, the long list of words. I expected my 100+ BAT to be there. There was zero. What? Isn’t that the sole purpose of a recovery key (seed phrase)?
Also, I must say that I didn’t read the note below the text entry box. I fell that I know what a recovery key is supposed to do. It wouldn’t have mattered if I had read the note though, because these instructions are inane: “Restoring with a recovery key will replace your current wallet. So make sure you empty or back up your current wallet before restoring.” What is the purpose of a recovery key if it zeroes out what you’re trying to recover? Isn’t that called an “erase and make new wallet key”?
