A couple of years ago I used the Iota Python SDK in order to generate some addresses.
api = Iota(uri, seed)
api_response = api.get_new_addresses(index=index, count=30, security_level=3)
From there I chose one at a specific index, let's say
25, to which I transferred a certain amount from an exchange.
While now trying to migrate that wallet over to Chrysalis, after entering the seed in the Firefly app, it tells me that it can't find the balance.
I have two suspects for this cause:
- A non-zero index (maybe the app only checks the first address for the seed), or
- the higher
security_level. I think
security_level=2would be the default.
I think the non-zero index shouldn't really be an issue, but it may be, because the app is telling me pretty fast that the seed is incorrect, and I think it would take some more time to come up with the address at index 25.
How do I deal with this issue?
