Jade supports the creation of child BIP39 recovery phrases using the BIP85 specification.

A child recovery phrase is created from an index number and the wallet stored on Jade, allowing you to derive wallets from a parent or "master" wallet. From a single seed phrase, BIP85 can be used to derive seed phrases to "child" wallets. You can use these child wallets in different contexts (ex. mobile hot wallet, starter wallet for spouse/mom/dad/whoever).
