Counterparty Platform Architecture

In the figure below you can see how all Counterparty platform components interact with each other.

counterparty-server

counterparty-server is the name for the combination of counterparty-lib and counterparty-cli. It serves as the reference client for Counterparty, and implements support for the core Counterparty protocol via a provided REST API and command line interface.

counterblock

counterblock provides additional services (required by counterwallet and potentially other services) beyond those offered in the API provided by counterparty-server. It features a full-fledged JSON RPC-based API, and has an extensible architecture to support custom plugins.

Counterwallet

Counterwallet is a web wallet for Bitcoin (BTC) and Counterparty (XCP). It is being actively developed and currently implements most Counterparty features, such as:

  • Fully functional wallet for BTC, XCP, and user-created tokens
  • Peer-to-peer asset trading with algorithmic order matching (XCP, other assets)
  • Custom asset creation
  • Betting
  • Broadcasting data on the Bitcoin Blockchain
  • Multisig
  • Offline (Armory) transactions

armory_utxsvr

A service used by counterblock with Counterwallet to support Offline Armory transactions. This service requires Armory itself.
