Our server has bitcoind on it and is running on the test network.

I want to make the wallet multi-signature so no one in our company can withdraw any bitcoin from our server without at least 3 signatures.

Can you do this with bitcoind? I tried to follow: How can I create a multi signature 2-of-3 transaction? and How users collectively sign a transaction in a multisig scenario? .. but could still send the bitcoin from our server with:

bitcoin-cli sendtoaddress "address_here" 0.01
  • That just means you had 0.01 tnBTC in the wallet which didn't come in through the multisig address. – Pieter Wuille Nov 21 '17 at 21:03
  • Is there a way to make the whole wallet multi sig? Instead of just a single address within the whole bitcoind node wallet. – Marc Alexander Nov 21 '17 at 21:09
  • Just never send any money to it, except through the multisig addresses. There is no way to automatically derive multisig addresses. – Pieter Wuille Nov 21 '17 at 21:10
  • a bit late, but maybe it helps future readers. Whereas you cannot "make the wallet" multisig, you can create a multisig address. And while you are on testnet, here is a step by step example: gist.github.com/gavinandresen/3966071 – pebwindkraft Mar 5 '18 at 17:01
