Introduction

The TrustVault API is a GraphQL based API for interacting with TrustVault wallets.

TrustVault is the entry point for securely managing your customers’ or clients’ wallets. In brief you will be able to create BIP32 compatible wallets for Bitcoin, Ethereum (and ERC20) and Binance Chain. You will then be able to:

  • View the balance of your assets
  • Send Assets to anyone (or whitelisted addresses only)
  • View history of transactions (export to CSV also)
  • Create Bitcoin receive addresses and view transactions on each address
  • Enforce whitelist withdrawal to your exchanges by signing up to the Exchange Service
  • Many more exciting features coming soon 🎉

Introduction to API Access

There are fundamentally two models which are supported.

  1. The API client uses their registered iPhone device to sign all transactions or policy changes.
    API User with phone

  2. The API client controls the Instruction Key and does not need the iOS device.
    API User with own key

Method 1: Using an Iphone device with the TrustVault App

For API users that:

  • Do not want to custody the Instruction Key (as the key is kept in the secure enclave of the iOS device)
  • Want a manual process of viewing and signing off on each transaction (eg CEO views and approves outbound transactions)
  • Do not need to automatically process many transactions per second
  • Want a faster development flow

Only the API Onboarding Tutorial is relevant to this type of API user. The public postman collection is all that is needed to develop all of TrustVault’s features

Method 2: Client holds their own Instruction Key

For API users that:

  • Want a completely automated flow with no manual steps
  • Confident in securing their private Instruction Key
  • Are confident and able to integrate our JavaScript SDK or can reproduce all of the encoding logic themselves (each blockchain has their own logic for transaction creation).
