Address path (BIP32) defines how to derive private and public keys of a wallet from a binary master seed (m) and an ordered set of indices.

BIP32 derivation path:

m / 0' / 0' /k'

BIP32 extended private key represents the extended private key derived from the derivation path.

Trezor and BIP32 address path[edit]

Trezor uses BIP44, which is based on BIP32. BIP44 dictates the derivation path:

m / purpose' / coin_type' / account' / change / address_index
