What wallet types are supported?

Which wallet types does Multichain support? And how do I configure Multichaind to use them?

I am particularly interested in HD wallets.

The internal wallet of multichaind is fairly straightforwards, and does not support HD. However you can use any external wallet or library to create HD keys/addresses. Anything compatible with bitcoin will work fine with MultiChain.

You might want to make life easier by setting up your blockchain for bitcoin-compatible address and private key versions – see the top of this: http://www.multichain.com/developers/address-key-format/

Also note that the permissioning in a MultiChain blockchain is per-address, so you'd need to decide how to handle that if you want to use many different HD-generated addresses.
