Project Description

This package allows performing commands such as listing the current balance and sending coins to the Satoshi (original) client from Python. The communication with the client happens over JSON-RPC.

Not actively maintained

bitcoin-python is not actively maintained. I don’t have the mental bandwidth to maintain it and good alternatives have sprung up over time.

I’d suggest python-bitcoinlib ( https://github.com/petertodd/python-bitcoinlib ) as is the ultimate python bitcoin library. It offers not only RPC access but also a Python version of almost every bitcoin data structure.

The RPC is can be used through bitcoin.rpc.Proxy, see for example https://github.com/petertodd/python-bitcoinlib/blob/master/examples/make-bootstrap-rpc.py.

If anyone wants to take up the maintainer role for bitcoin-python, let me know.
