Good morning everyone! (Or evening depending on where you land in the world). I have what I think is a fairly technical question about hardware wallets. I know that many utilize the BIP39 protocol to generate a string of words that account for your seed phrase, but how does a hardware wallet and therefor that seed phrase then know to correlate with the multiple addresses you’ve sent BTC to on the wallet (assuming you didn’t move it all in one lump sum). The answer is probably easy, but I’m ignorant and figured I’d ask you professionals. Thanks!
