THIS IS OBSOLETE
Do not use this, it is here just for historical reasons
This is SatoshiLabs fork of Bitpay's Bitcore that uses Bitcoin 0.15.0. It has a limited segwit support. We also have separate branches for some Bitcoin forks (UASF, 2x, Gold, Cash).
We (SatoshiLabs) are not promising to keep these forks "alive", updated and maintained, long-term. For that reason, they are not pushed into NPM, just on github.
However, right now, we are actively using these in production on https://wallet.trezor.io .
What is also added is support for new smart fees;
/utils/estimatesmartfee?nbBlocks=2&mode=economical returns the new smart fees. Similarly, estimatesmartfee (with
int bool parameters) is added to the bitcore websocket API.
We do not version Bitcore here, either for mainnet or for the forks; we are using https://github.com/satoshilabs/bitcore-deb to build debian packages, which are versioned, for all the coins. So this repo might seem a little chaotic, but we are pinning commit hashes for various altcoins in the bitcore-deb repo.
Bitpay's Bitcore has diverged from our code with their recent rewrites and refactors (for example, added bcoin for transaction parsing); we do not plan to merge the big refactors back here. (see https://github.com/bitpay/bitcore )
Following is original Bitcore readme.
Infrastructure to build Bitcoin and blockchain-based applications for the next generation of financial technology.
Note: If you're looking for the Bitcore Library please see: https://github.com/bitpay/bitcore-lib
Before you begin you'll need to have Node.js v4 or v0.12 installed. There are several options for installation. One method is to use nvm to easily switch between different versions, or download directly from Node.js.
npm install -g bitcore
Spin up a full node and join the network:
npm install -g bitcore bitcored
You can then view the Insight block explorer at the default location:
http://localhost:3001/insight, and your configuration file will be found in your home directory at
Create a transaction:
var bitcore = require('bitcore'); var transaction = new bitcore.Transaction(); var transaction.from(unspent).to(address, amount); transaction.sign(privateKey);
