Basic key derivation from mnemonic seed phrase
BIP39 is used to generate mnemonic seed words and derive a binary seed from them.
A basic client can simply use an
0 to derive a single key. For more advanced use-cases you can increment
account, allowing generation of practically infinite keys from the 5-level path with hardened derivation.
Other types of clients can still get fancy and use other derivation paths for their own other purposes.
