Verify Receive Address
It is essential to be sure you control a bitcoin address before you use it to receive funds and verifying multisig receive addresses is slightly more complicated than single-key setups.
In order to securely receive funds, you must verify a given receive address on at least a quorum (
m-of-n) of your trusted displays.
In the default case, this means you would check on both your Cobo Vault and your Coldcard.
This is both annoying – the two devices should be kept in different physical locations – and in the case of Coldcard mildly frustrating as they don’t currently support address exploration with an airgap.
Once you have verified your address on a quorum of devices, it is safe to give that address out to a payee. Advanced users can mitigate some of these issues by following these steps.
