Hello, building on a question previously asked (along with a further request for clarification that I think is missed due it not populating as a new open question), I’ll author the query as a new question.If a wallet is lost (hardware physically lost, software corrputed or not supported by new OS, or whatever scenario you can imagine), and the manufacturer/supplier of that wallet no longer exists to provide a new replacement hardware/software wallet, can that recovery seed phrase be used with a different provider\’s wallet to regain access to the bitcoins within, or are those bitcoins lost forever? Thank you!

Hey Kevin,
I think I’ve already answered this. Yes you can. For example, if your TREZOR is destroyed and the company goes bust you can still import the seed into Electrum.
