I exported my Keplr/Trust wallet’s word seed phrase into MetaMask and noticed it gave me a different address. Why?

  • MetaMask and Keplr wallets don't share the same derivation path, so using the exact seed phrase for both wallets doesn't work because both wallets have different methods to generate unique addresses. MetaMask is designed for Ethereum-based chains, while Keplr is optimized for Cosmos-based chains.
  • If you use your Keplr Wallet’s derived EVM address to participate in protocols’ airdrops on the EVM, you wouldn’t be able to claim your airdrops.
