Get public key

Retrieves BIP32 extended public derived by given BIP32 path. User is presented with a description of the requested key and asked to confirm the export.

const result = await TrezorConnect.getPublicKey(params);

Params

**Optional common params**

Exporting single public key

  • pathrequired string | Array<number> minimum length is 1. read more
  • coin - optional string determines network definition specified in coins.json file. Coin shortcut, name or label can be used. If coin is not set API will try to get network definition from path.
  • crossChainoptional boolean Advanced feature. Use it only if you are know what you are doing. Allows to generate address between chains. For example Bitcoin path on Litecoin network will display cross chain address in Litecoin format.

Exporting bundle of public keys

  • bundle - Array of Objects with path, coin and crossChain fields

Example

Return public key of fifth bitcoin account:

TrezorConnect.getPublicKey({
    path: "m/49'/0'/4'",
    coin: 'btc',
});

Return a bundle of public keys for multiple bitcoin accounts:

TrezorConnect.getPublicKey({
    bundle: [
        { path: "m/49'/0'/0'" }, // account 1
        { path: "m/49'/0'/1'" }, // account 2
        { path: "m/49'/0'/2'" }, // account 3
    ],
});

Result

Result with only one public key

{
    success: true,
    payload: {
        path: Array<number>, // hardended path
        serializedPath: string, // serialized path
        xpub: string,        // xpub in legacy format
        xpubSegwit?: string, // optional for segwit accounts: xpub in segwit format
        chainCode: string,   // BIP32 serialization format
        childNum: number,    // BIP32 serialization format
        publicKey: string,   // BIP32 serialization format
        fingerprint: number, // BIP32 serialization format
        depth: number,       // BIP32 serialization format
    }
}

Result with bundle of public keys

{
    success: true,
    payload: [
        { path, serializedPath, xpub, xpubSegwit?, chainCode, childNum, publicKey, fingerprint, depth }, // account 1
        { path, serializedPath, xpub, xpubSegwit?, chainCode, childNum, publicKey, fingerprint, depth }, // account 2
        { path, serializedPath, xpub, xpubSegwit?, chainCode, childNum, publicKey, fingerprint, depth }  // account 3
    ]
}

Error

{
    success: false,
    payload: {
        error: string // error message
    }
