Does Multichain support BIP32, BIP39 and BIP44?

 


BIP-0032: https://github.com/bitcoin/bips/blob/master/bip-0032.mediawiki

Quote

This document describes hierarchical determinstic wallets (or "HD Wallets"): wallets which can be shared partially or entirely with different systems, each with or without the ability to spend coins. 


BIP-0039: https://github.com/bitcoin/bips/blob/master/bip-0039.mediawiki

Quote

This BIP describes the implementation of a mnemonic code or mnemonic sentence -- a group of easy to remember words -- for the generation of deterministic wallets.


BIP-0044: https://github.com/bitcoin/bips/blob/master/bip-0044.mediawiki

Quote

This BIP defines a logical hierarchy for deterministic wallets based on an algorithm described in BIP-0032 (BIP32 from now on) and purpose scheme described in BIP-0043 (BIP43 from now on).

No, I'm afraid the wallet built into MultiChain does not support any HD scheme. However you are welcome to use an external wallet with MultiChain, under the 'External key management' pattern:

Bear in mind however that you need to consider how the multiple addresses generated by an HD wallet will be treated in terms of on-chain per-address permissions.
