A simple class for making calls to Multichain's API using PHP.

Forked from EasyBitcoin-PHP, Copyright (c) 2013 Andrew LeCody https://github.com/aceat64/EasyMultiChain-PHP

Getting Started

  1. Include multichain-api.php into your PHP script:

  2. Initialize MultiChain connection/object:

    $MultiChain = new MultiChain('username','password','localhost','2286');

    Check, if initialization worked (i.e. curl is installed)

    if (!$MultiChain->initOK) {

    If you wish to make an SSL connection you can set an optional CA certificate or leave blank

  3. Make calls to multichaind as methods for your object. Examples:


    If you called 'getinfo()' at least once, the major version of multichaind is set as integer in $this->versionMajor

    $res = $MultiChain->getinfo();
    if ($MultiChain->versionMajor == 2) {
      // code, which is for new versions only ...

Additional Info

  • When a call fails for any reason, it will return false and put the error message in $MultiChain->error

  • The HTTP status code can be found in $MultiChain->status and will either be a valid HTTP status code or will be 0 if cURL was unable to connect.

  • The full response (not usually needed) is stored in $MultiChain->response while the raw JSON is stored in $MultiChain->raw_response
