FAQ

  • What is a Satoshi?

    • Satoshi is to Bitcoin as pennies are to the dollar. Except that there are 100,000,000 Satoshi in one Bitcoin.
  • Why do I need a module when I can just divide or multiply by 100,000,000?

    • See here - Floating point errors are a problem. So satoshi-bitcoin uses a tiny bignum library (big.js) to ensure accurate conversions!
