Atomic Wallet is a non-custodial multicurrency wallet for mobile and desktop devices. Staking and cashback features make Atomic Wallet really appealing for investors at first glance. But Atomic Wallet experienced a massive $100 million exploit in mid-June 2023. The hack affected more than 5,000 accounts. Who knows how many other exploits Atomic Wallet hides?

  • Litecoin (P2PKH - Legacy): m/44'/60'/0'

Non-standard derivation paths

Atomic Wallet creates a non-standard derivation path for certain coins (Ethereum, Arbitrum, Binance Smart Chain, Avalanche, Polygon, and Ethereum Classic). In such cases, you must transfer private keys using the following steps:

1. Copy the Ethereum private key from Atomic Wallet.

step 1

2. Open your Coin Wallet account and select the missing coin.

step 2

3. Go to the "Transfer private key" page.

step 3

4. Enter the copied private key, click "Continue," and confirm the transfer.

step 4

Repeat the above steps for the other missing coins with non-standard derivation paths.
