Add Bitcoin-S to your project


You can try out Bitcoin-S in a REPL in a matter of seconds. Run the provided "try bitcoin-s" script, which has no dependencies other than an installed JDK. The script downloads and installs Coursier and uses it to fetch the Ammonite REPL and the latest version of Bitcoin-S. It then drops you into immediately into a REPL session.

$ curl -s | bash
Welcome the Bitcoin-S REPL, powered by Ammonite
Check out our documentation and examples at
@ val priv = ECPrivateKey()
@ val pub = priv.publicKey
@ val spk = P2WPKHWitnessSPKV0(pub)
@ val address = Bech32Address(spk, MainNet)
@ address.value # Tada! You've just made a Bech32 address

Getting prebuilt JARs

If you want to add Bitcoin-S to your project, follow the instructions for your build tool


Add this to your build.sbt:

libraryDependencies +="org.bitcoin-s" % "bitcoin-s-secp256k1jni" % "@STABLE_VERSION@"

libraryDependencies += "org.bitcoin-s" %% "bitcoin-s-core" % "@STABLE_VERSION@"

libraryDependencies += "org.bitcoin-s" %% "bitcoin-s-bitcoind-rpc" % "@STABLE_VERSION@"

libraryDependencies += "org.bitcoin-s" %% "bitcoin-s-eclair-rpc" % "@STABLE_VERSION@"

libraryDependencies += "org.bitcoin-s" %% "bitcoin-s-testkit" % "@STABLE_VERSION@"

libraryDependencies += "org.bitcoin-s" %% "bitcoin-s-zmq" % "@STABLE_VERSION@"
val isUnstable = "@UNSTABLE_VERSION" != "@STABLE_VERSION@"
if (isUnstable) {
### Nightly builds

You can also run on the bleeding edge of Bitcoin-S, by
adding a snapshot build to your `build.sbt`. The most
recent snapshot published is `@UNSTABLE_VERSION@`.

To fetch snapshots, you will need to add the correct
resolver in your `build.sbt`:

resolvers += Resolver.sonatypeRepo("snapshots")
${List.fill(3)("`").mkString /* Hacky solution to get around nesting backticks */ }




Building JARs yourself

If you want to build Bitcoin-S JARs yourself, you need to use the sbt build tool. Once you have sbt installed, run sbt publishLocal. This places the required JAR files in your .ivy2/local folder. On Linux, this is located at $HOME/.ivy2/local/ by default.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
