Bitcoin Wallet Address Generator

This is a simple Bitcoin wallet address generator coded in Python 3. It generates a Private Key in different formats (hex, wif and compressed wif) and corresponding Public Addresses, raw, P2WPKH addresses starting with prefix 1, P2SH addresses starting with prefix 3 as part of Segwit soft fork and Bech32 addresses with prefix bc1 P2WPKH and P2WSH.
