Withdraw from Wallet - Self-Managed Multisig Hot (Advanced)

Overview

You build withdrawals from self-managed multisignature hot wallets by submitting transaction details to BitGo. BitGo uses the data you pass to construct an unsigned transaction that wallet co-signers can sign and wallet admins can approve. Once the transaction is half signed and approved, you send it to BitGo for final signing and broadcasting to the blockchain.

If you don't need this level of granular control for your withdrawals, see the integration guide for the simple flow.

Prerequisites

1. Build Transaction

Build the transaction by specifying the transaction details and sending them to BitGo. The following example is shows the minimum required parameters for sending bitcoin.

Endpoint: Build a Transaction

  • cURL
  • JavaScript
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 export COIN="<ASSET_ID>" export WALLET_ID="<YOUR_WALLET_ID>" export ACCESS_TOKEN="<YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN>" export ADDRESS="<DESTINATION_ADDRESS>" export AMOUNT="<AMOUNT_IN_BASE_UNITS>" curl -X POST \ https://app.bitgo-test.com/api/v2/$COIN/wallet/$WALLET_ID/tx/build \ -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \ -H "Authorization: Bearer $ACCESS_TOKEN" \ -d '{ "recipients": [ { "amount": "'"$AMOUNT"'", "address": "'"$ADDRESS"'", } ] }'

Note: If you're building transactions for a UTXO asset in quick succession, BitGo recommends reserving unspents by passing the reservation and expireTime parameters. Reserving unspents avoids errors by ensuring the UTXO aren't included in subsequent builds.

Step Result

BitGo uses the data you pass to build an unsigned transaction. The following example builds a withdrawal of 10,000 sats of TBTC.

3. Send Transaction

Using the txHex returned in the prior step, send the half-signed transaction to BitGo.

Step Result

If your withdrawal doesn't require approval, BitGo applies the final signature using the BitGo key and broadcasts the transaction to the blockchain. If you Create Wallet Policies to require approvals on withdrawals, the transaction remains in a pending-approval status until a wallet admin approves it.

4. Approve Transaction (Optional)

Note: If you configure an approval requirement for withdrawals, you can't approve your own transactions - another admin must always approve them.

Step Result

Once approved, BitGo rebuilds the half-signed transaction, applying the most up-to-date fees. BitGo then applies the final signature using the BitGo key and broadcasts the transaction to the blockchain.
