Our team maintains bdk which is the core library, while also maintaining a number of other related open source projects like:

  • BDK CLI - A CLI wallet library and REPL tool to demo and test the BDK library
  • BDK FFI - A foreign language bindings generator for BDK (experimental)
  • BDK Documentation - Our open source documentation

Open source is fundamental to this project and we would love to connect with you.

Most of our communication happens on the BDK discord server, come say hi!
