Hierarchal Deterministic Wallet

Given the current choices of wallet software, I’d like to implement a hierarchical deterministic wallet. However, my knowledge on cryptography is basic. I think there are plenty of reference for making one, but little explanation.

Would anyone else like to weigh in their thoughts?

I’d looked for hd wallets based on ed25519 in the past. Im not aware of an existing implementation that is used by many. But I did find Ed25519 and hierarchical deterministic wallet - Cryptography Stack Exchange and GitHub - orogvany/BIP32-Ed25519-java: BIP32-Ed25519 HD wallets for java

I believe that this would be a valuable project scuti… and i’d be interested in helping if I could, but I’ve never tried and therefore cannot say Im capable of implementing/working with the ed25519 curve. In my own ugly coding style, i have implemented secp256k1 and bip32 in the past, so i can wrap my head around those… but ed25519 is a different animal.

There have been discussions in the past on the tech forums… like Proposition d'un modèle de portefeuilles "HD" - Nodes - Duniter Forum
