Seed Phrase Backups

Casa does not use seed phrase backups in our storage systems for the following reasons:

  • While seed phrases reduce the threat of accidental loss, they increase the threat of theft since the seed phrases must also be secured.

  • Seed phrase backups double the number of sensitive items our customers have to manage and store. In a 3-of-5 system, this would mean 10 items to protect instead of 5.
