CoreBitcoin is an implementation of Bitcoin protocol in Objective-C. It's already a useful toolkit, but does not yet provide full node implementation.
Due to "all or nothing" nature of blockchain, CoreBitcoin must perfectly match implementation of BitcoinQT ("Satoshi client"), including all its features, oddities and bugs. If you come across things that CoreBitcoin does differently from BitcoinQT, this might be a subtle bug in our implementation and should be investigated.
- EC keys and signatures for binary and Bitcoin text messages.
- Blockchain.info API to fetch unspent outputs and send signed transactions
- BIP32 hierarchical deterministic wallets
- Math on elliptic curves: big numbers, curve points, conversion between keys, numbers and points.
- Various cryptographic primitives: hash functions, ECC, encryption.
- P2P communication with other nodes
- Importing BitcoinQT, Electrum and Blockchain.info wallets
Add this to your Podfile:
pod 'CoreBitcoin', :podspec => 'https://raw.github.com/oleganza/CoreBitcoin/master/CoreBitcoin.podspec'
Run in Terminal:
$ pod install
If you'd like to use categories, include different header:
Clone this repository and build all libraries:
$ ./update_openssl.sh $ ./build_libraries.sh
Copy iOS or OS X framework located in binaries/iOS or binaries/OSX to your project.
There are also raw universal libraries (.a) with headers located in binaries/include, if you happen to need them for some reason. Frameworks and binary libraries have OpenSSL built-in. If you have different version of OpenSSL in your project, consider using CocoaPods or raw sources of CoreBitcoin.
- [done] 0.1 BTC for a CocoaPod. OpenSSL should be bundled automatically (or as a dependency). [@oleganza]
- [done] 0.5 BTC for building CoreBitcoin.a with headers and support for x86_64, armv7, armv7s, armv64. OpenSSL should be bundled inside. [@oleganza]
- [done] extra 0.5 BTC for building CoreBitcoin.framework with support for x86_64, armv7, armv7s, armv64. OpenSSL should be bundled inside. It's okay to have one framework for OS X and one for iOS. [@oleganza]
