Before diving deeper, it’s important to explain what “HD Wallets” are.

Rainbow creates “HD Wallets” which stands for hierarchical deterministic wallet. Your wallet has a cryptographic secret phrase that can be used to generate a primary wallet and an infinite number of sub-wallets.

When you create multiple wallets in Rainbow, you're actually generating sub-wallets using the same secret phrase!

It’s important to note that restoring those additional wallets will restore from the order they were created. If you have multiple wallets, or say wallets that were empty, you’ll want to continue to create a new wallet until all of your wallets appear.
