How to Import My Unisat Wallet to Xverse?

To import your Unisat wallet into Xverse, it is important to understand how Xverse handles Bitcoin and Ordinals compared to Unisat.

With Xverse, Bitcoin is stored under addresses starting with '3' (Nested SegWit), while Ordinals, Runes, and BRC-20 tokens are stored under the address starting with 'bc1p' (Taproot). This separation is intended to enhance the safety of your assets. Conversely, Unisat wallet stores both Bitcoin and Ordinals under the same address.


  • If you’re using a Native SegWit address (bc1q) with your Unisat wallet, you cannot import it into Xverse. Instead, please create a new Xverse wallet and transfer your assets directly from Unisat to Xverse.

  • If your Unisat wallet uses a Taproot address (bc1p) for both Bitcoin and Ordinals, you’ll need to move your Bitcoin to the Nested SegWit address (starting with ‘3’) after import for the funds to be correctly reflected and spendable.


Xverse wallet does not support the importing of wallets using WIF or HEX private keys and only 12/24 word seed phrases can be imported.

Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Import Your Seed Phrase:

    • During Xverse setup, enter your 12 or 24-word seed phrase.

    • This generates both a taproot 'bc1p' address and a separate '3' address for BTCImage

  2. Recover your Bitcoin from your Taproot address:
