Why Does Ethos Store Extended Public Keys?

Created by Ethos Support, Modified on Tue, 14 Feb, 2023 at 1:15 AM by Ethos Support

When you generate a wallet, there is a handshake with our server that sends the extended public key to us. As you may know, you can create seemingly infinite private and public key pairs.

The extended public key stored by Ethos allows us to generate addresses, track wallet balances, and support airdrops. This allows us to tie your keys to your Ethos account and prevent bad actors from using them on another Ethos accounts.
