Frequently Asked Questions

Where is my private key?

Your private key is generated on a .bit file in your local directory. If you put funds on it, please back it up.

How do I connect to a remote node?

Use the environment variables below to change the node information

RPC_HOST=127.0.0.1 RPC_USER=root RPC_PASS=bitcoin PEER_HOST=127.0.0.1 pewpew fire 1Jpgfg9fFNKVVGxYgUhuKhdbxTSKBUnVf4

How do I change the number of transactions I'm sending?

Specify the number after the address

pewpew fire 1Jpgfg9fFNKVVGxYgUhuKhdbxTSKBUnVf4 20

How do I change the amount of satoshis I'm sending?

Specify the --satoshis flag

pewpew fire --satoshis 600 1Jpgfg9fFNKVVGxYgUhuKhdbxTSKBUnVf4

Why are my transactions getting rejected?

Probably because the fee is too low, try sending a lower satoshi amount.

Disclamer: This is new and experimental code, don't send a lot of money without testing first

TODO

  • UTXO calculation could be much better, should calculate optimal size
  • Add RPC_PORT env variable
  • P2P
