The tinfoil hat / OCD guide to withdrawals from Coinbase Pro to Trezor via Electrum

Had occasion to do a small, but non-trivial withdraw from Coinbase Pro to Trezor via Electrum. Since the “How do I withdraw” question is asked almost daily, I went ahead and documented my (OCD) steps. If you wanted to, you could reduce the steps to probably less than 5, but this covers most situations. I suppose you could start adding a faraday cage if you wanted to dial it up to eleven.


  1. Pair your Trezor to a GPG verified up-to-date copy of Electrum
  2. In Electrum create a receive request
  3. In your notebook, write the first 6 and last 6 characters of the address
  4. Click the eyeball icon to show this address on your Trezor
  5. Verify the first 6 and last 6 from your notebook on the Trezor LCD
  6. Click the copy icon in Electrum to move the address to the clipboard
  7. On the address tab, click CTRL-F to start a search and paste the address
  8. Enable “show details” for the address with a right-click
  9. From details box, copy the Address, Pubkey, and derivation to notepad
  10. Verify the first 6 and last 6 from your notebook with what was pasted in notepad
  11. Log into Coinbase Pro and generate a BTC (only) statement for a current time period
  12. Log into your email and find the last “available balance increase” msg from CB
  13. Review your statement and write down what the BTC balance was 24 hrs before the msg
  14. Go to CB Pro address book and add the address recorded in notepad
  15. Verify the first 6 and last 6 from your notebook with what was just done
  16. Begin a BTC withdraw from Coinbase Pro
  17. Use the entry you made in your CB Pro address book for the withdraw
  18. The address may truncate, right click on it and select “inspect” to view the HTML
  19. In the raw HTML you should see the untruncated address.
  20. Verify the first 6 and last 6 from your notebook with the address in HTML
  21. Use the amount you recorded earlier from your statement. Round down for fees.
  22. Copy the suggested fee into notepad with your other records
  23. Calculate the amount of fees suggested and deliberate if this is what you want.
  24. Begin the withdraw to advance to the confirmation screen
  25. In the confirmation screen ensure that the “Total” is less than the amt recorded earlier
  26. Verify the amount is what you requested
  27. Verify the first 6 and last 6 from your notebook with the address in the confirmation
  28. Verify the fee is what was suggested previously
  29. Accept the confirmation to commit the withdraw
  30. Get a beer an wait for a while
  31. Check electrum to see if any TXNs have started for your wallet
  32. If no network activity is registered on that address check the CB records
  33. From “Portfolio” click “Withdraws”
  34. Check to see if your withdraw is in the withdraw log
  35. If it is, click the withdraw to get specifics
  36. If it is not check your email and SMS for alerts
  37. If your balance is reduced but your withdraw is absent, open a ticket
