Simple Bitcoin

Understanding the mechanics of Bitcoin using Python3, the accompanying source files to my blog post.

The files in this repo do just enough to allow you to generate an address, make a transaction and then submit that transaction to the Bitcoin blockchain.

  • bitcoin_address_utils.py contains code to generate a Bitcoin address
  • bitcoin_transaction_utils.py contains code to generate a signed Bitcoin transaction
  • bitcoin_p2p_message_utils.py contains code to submit a signed transaction to the Bitcoin blockchain, via the peer to peer network
You can’t perform that action at this time.
