    Trying to create a new wallet using the airdrop seed and its coming back with the following message:

    Input error: unidentifiable word xxxx

    Invalid seed specified. Must be a hexadecimal value that is at least 128 bits and at most 512 bits

    Can someone shed some light?

    Make sure all of the words are on a single line separated by spaces. Even though they are printed out on multiple lines for readbility, they must be entered on a single line.

    I've been having a similar issue, however mine is saying unidentifiable word "brazillian". How is this an unidentifiable word if it was output from the DCRaddrgen?

    I think i may have fixed it similar to your issue by pasting into notepad, turning off wordpress, and scrolling carefully to ensure the spacing as made. Will update shortly.

    Mine keeps reporting that the value needs to be in hex and the hex seed does not work either :(

    @BlackFire you are importing the words, not the hex.

    Maybe you should check your spelling. It is certainly not brazillian with two "l".

    On the paper where you wrote it down when you created your airdrop address.

    I'd suggest double checking your words have no typos by comparing them to the words in the list at the following page:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PGP_word_list

    As you can see, it is "Brazilian" with one l versus the two.

    And B not b ("brazillian") ;)

    If I remember well I had only one uppercase word in my seed. Not sure if it is always like that or just coincidence.

    Case shouldn't matter when decoding the PGP wordlist encoding. If it does, that's a bug.
