Sign Transactions

Overview

For self-managed wallets, after initiating a transaction, BitGo constructs an unsigned transaction. When wallet co-signers begin signing the transaction, it becomes a partially-signed transaction. Once all required co-signers sign the transaction, it becomes a half-signed transaction. A transaction is fully signed after you send it to Bitgo and BitGo signs, using the BitGo key.

Note: For custodial wallets, BitGo is responsible for all keys and signatures. There's no client integration for signing transactions from custodial wallets.

  • Multisig Cold
  • Multisig Hot
  • TSS

Wallet co-signers sign transactions using the BitGo Offline Vault Console (OVC). There's no client integration for signing transactions from self-managed cold wallets.

Prerequisites

  • Multisig Cold
  • Multisig or TSS Hot

Steps

  • Multisig
  • TSS

If transacting from a self-managed cold wallet, co-signers must sign the transaction using the OVC.

If transacting from a self-managed hot wallet, review the following:

  • SDK
  • SDK (external-signing mode)
  • API

Step Result

The following is a half-signed transaction that's sent to BitGo for final signing:

1 2 3 4 5 { "txInfo": { "txHex": "01000000000101d58f82d996dd872012675adadf4606734906b25a413f6e2ee535c0c10aef96020000000000ffffffff028de888000000000017a914c91aa24f65827eecec775037d886f2952b73cbe48740420f000000000017a9149304d18497b9bfe9532778a0f06d9fff3b3befaf870500473044022023d7210ba6d8bbd7a28b8af226f40f7235caab79156f93f9c9969fc459ea7f73022050fbdca788fba3de686b66b3501853695ff9d6f375867470207d233b099576e001000069522103d4788cda52f91c1f6c82eb91491ca76108c9c5f0839bc4f02eccc55fedb3311c210391bcef9dcc89570a79ba3c7514e65cd48e766a8868eca2769fa9242fdcc796662102ef3c5ebac4b54df70dea1bb2655126368be10ca0462382fcb730e55cddd2dd6a53aec8b11400" } }
