Yesterday I got a notification to backup my wallet even though I had originally loaded in a BTC wallet from Muon so my key was safe. I ignored it and got the notification today, so I decided to back up the key anyway and found that the words were now different from what I had used previously.
I recorded the new words, and recovered my wallet using the old words. This not only worked, but the backup for the newly recovered wallet was still the same set of new words. I’ve loaded back in the set of words that is displayed rather than my original set in case it matters, but I’m curious why two sets are for the same wallet.
Did something change with how the backups are done and my first set of words is just an old format or is there a collision? Why did I get the notification to backup my wallet?
I was on the previous version of brave yesterday, but updated today and still had the same notification and difference in sets of words and was when I noticed the issue. Version 0.60.48 Chromium: 72.0.3626.121 (Official Build) (64-bit)
