What is BIP32?
The BIP32 specification standardizes:
- Master key derivation from a random seed
- Public derivation — a method for deriving more public keys from a single HD public key (e.g. to create a “watch-only” wallet)
- “Hardened” derivation — a derivation method which requires the HD private key (for use cases where child keys may be shared)
- encoding/decoding of HD public keys and HD private keys
