Relation between wallet and papet wallet?


#1

I know it was discussed here before but i did not understood completely…
To make paper wallet i need a desctop wallet(dw).
For this(dw) i get 12 word recovery phrase.
Then i can create paper wallet (pw).
For this (pw) i get a 27 word recovery phrase(rp
)
My question is does the paper wallet recover also the (dw) which it was created.?
I think not but i saw posts sugesting this so can someone clarify?

Hello,

the paper wallet has nothing to do with any other wallet you did create. It’s not a backup, a new one with a new address.

You only need Daedalus to create a paper wallet. After installing Daedalus you can create a wallet within Daedalus and thus get a recovery phrase for that Daedalus SOFTWARE wallet. OR/and you can create a paper wallet and thus get a recovery phrase for that Daedalus PAPER wallet. See the instructions for a paper wallet here: https://iohk.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360011495333 (iohk.zendesk.com is linked form the support portal on https://daedaluswallet.io/)

Because from what i read before i had some doubt if the paper wallet had some master key that would also restore the desktop wallet it was created in,although it didn t make sense ,i just wanted to clarify the litle doubt i had.
THANKS

If you’re still not totally clear on what a paper wallet is we created a post last month on Clio.one on this very topic with some illustrative pictures to boot:
