Welcome to BitcoinKit
The BitcoinKit library is a Swift implementation of the Bitcoin protocol, supporting both of BCH and BTC. Our mission is improving the mobile ecosystem for Bitcoin developers.
It allows maintaining a wallet and sending/receiving transactions without needing a full blockchain node. It comes with a simple wallet app showing how to use it.
Release notes are here.
- Encoding/decoding addresses: base58, Cashaddr, P2PKH, P2SH, WIF format.
- Transaction building blocks: inputs, outputs, scripts.
- EC keys and signatures.
- BIP32, BIP44 hierarchical deterministic wallets.
- BIP39 implementation.
- SPV features are under construction. The following functions cannot work well sometimes.
- Send/receive transactions.
- See current balance in a wallet.
// from Testnet Cashaddr let cashaddrTest = try AddressFactory.create("bchtest:pr6m7j9njldwwzlg9v7v53unlr4jkmx6eyvwc0uz5t") // from Mainnet Cashaddr let cashaddrMain = try AddressFactory.create("bitcoincash:qpjdpjrm5zvp2al5u4uzmp36t9m0ll7gd525rss978") // from Base58 format let address = try AddressFactory.create("1AC4gh14wwZPULVPCdxUkgqbtPvC92PQPN")
Creating new wallet
let privateKey = PrivateKey(network: .testnet) // You can choose .mainnet or .testnet let wallet = Wallet(privateKey: privateKey)
Import wallet from WIF
let wallet = try Wallet(wif: "92pMamV6jNyEq9pDpY4f6nBy9KpV2cfJT4L5zDUYiGqyQHJfF1K")
Hierarchical Deterministic Wallet
// Generate mnemonic let mnemonic = try Mnemonic.generate() // Generate seed from the mnemonic let seed = Mnemonic.seed(mnemonic: mnemonic) let wallet = HDWallet(seed: seed, network: .testnet)
let mnemonic = try Mnemonic.generate() let seed = Mnemonic.seed(mnemonic: mnemonic) let privateKey = HDPrivateKey(seed: seed, network: .testnet) // m/0' let m0prv = try! privateKey.derived(at: 0, hardened: true) // m/0'/1 let m01prv = try! m0prv.derived(at: 1) // m/0'/1/2' let m012prv = try! m01prv.derived(at: 2, hardened: true)
HD Wallet Key derivation
let keychain = HDKeychain(seed: seed, network: .mainnet) let privateKey = try! keychain.derivedKey(path: "m/44'/1'/0'/0/0")
let extendedKey = privateKey.extended()
let blockStore = try! SQLiteBlockStore.default() let blockChain = BlockChain(network: .testnet, blockStore: blockStore) let peerGroup = PeerGroup(blockChain: blockChain) let peerGroup.delegate = self let peerGroup.start()

CocoaPods is a dependency manager for Cocoa projects. You can install it with the following command:
$ gem install cocoapods
CocoaPods 1.5.0+ is required to build BitcoinKit.
To integrate BitcoinKit into your Xcode project using CocoaPods, specify it in your
source 'https://github.com/CocoaPods/Specs.git' platform :ios, '10.0' use_frameworks! target '<Your Target Name>' do pod 'BitcoinKit' end
Then, run the following command:
$ pod install
Carthage is a decentralized dependency manager that builds your dependencies and provides you with binary frameworks.
You can install Carthage with Homebrew using the following command:
$ brew update $ brew install carthage
To integrate BitcoinKit into your Xcode project using Carthage, specify it in your
carthage update to build the framework and drag the built
BitcoinKit.framework into your Xcode project.
Swift Package Manager
BitcoinKit is available through Swift Package Manager. To install it, simply add the following lines to dependencies of your Package.swift:
.package(url: "https://github.com/yenom/BitcoinKit.git", .upToNextMinor(from: "0.1.0"))
Note that following data types and features are currently not supported on Linux platform.
- SQLite based BlockStore
