I migrated my AE tokens from the ERC20 chain to the mainnet with the Airgap Vault app, and I didn’t touch them since the migration. I understand the Airgap Vault hides the private key, and that the 24-word BIP39 memonic is the backup in case I lose the device where my Airgap Vault is installed.
There are several reasons why I would like to have access to my existing AE account with other means than the Airgap Vault and Wallet, without having to move my tokens to another address.
First, as a Linux command line fan, I trust CLI wallets more than fancy GUI wallets, so I played around with aepp-cli-js and I like it. However, it’s not possible to import a BIP39 mnemonic into that wallet.
Second, I like to move around my tokens as little as possible. Of course I could move all my tokens from Airgap to a new wallet, but prefer to keep them where they are.
Third, I don’t like the idea that I’m dependent on one wallet manufacturer. Yes, I think there’s another GUI wallet available where you can import the BIP39 seed, but still, I prefer the CLI wallet.
It would be nice if aepp-cli-js offered an option to import the BIP39 mnemonic of an account.
