Mycelium supports multiple accounts that are linked to a single master seed. Here are the derivation paths for the multiple accounts:

  • Bitcoin:
    • Bech32 - SegWit native: m/84'/0'/i'
    • P2SH - SegWit compatible: m/49'/0'/i'
    • P2PKH - Legacy: m/44'/0'/i'
  • Ethereum: m/44'/60'/i'/0/0

The account number should go in place of "i" (e.g., m/84'/0'/1' for the second account, m/84'/0'/2' for the third account).
