Why do I need my 12-word recovery phrase ?
Your Bancor Wallet recovery is made up of 12 randomly selected words. These words and their order are unique to each wallet.
Users have the option to use their recovery phrase on every supported interface to access their Bancor Wallet. The recovery phrase can be used externally to the Bancor web app at all times, even during Bancor Network downtime.
Losing your recovery phrase can result in losing access to your wallet. We suggest that you save your recovery phrase in a secure way and use it only with secure services you know and trust.
