I’ve imported my MetaMask seed phrase into XDEFI Wallet but all my balances are at 0, I have no assets in the “Owned” tab and the Ethereum public deposit address(es) generated after the import aren’t the same. What is the problem?

This can occur for two reasons:

1. You have not imported the right seed phrase (the one of your current MetaMask wallet) but another seed phrase

2. You have imported the right seed phrase but the account(s) you have in your MetaMask wallet have been manually imported via private key(s) and are not linked to your MetaMask wallet’s seedphrase & private key‌‌
