Payment.skey and stake.skey from command line

Hi Cardanians,

Hoping someone can shed some light on how the signing keys for payment and stake addresses are derived from private key? Reading the documentation for cardano-address, the verification keys payment.vkey and stake.vkey are derived as:

$ cardano-address key child 1852H/1815H/0H/0/0 < root.xsk | cardano-address key public --with-chain-code > payment.xvk

cardano-address key child 1852H/1815H/0H/2/0 < root.xsk | cardano-address key public --with-chain-code > stake.xvk

I’m having trouble finding the explicit derivation of the signing keys from here. Thanks in advance for any help :slight_smile:

i hope it’s work for you . @alex-2045
