Python Bitcoins for Humans.

Project description

Bitcoins is an MIT licensed cryptocurrency library, written in Python, for human beings.

Nothing is complicated when it’s in Python. Not even cryptocurrencies.

>>> bitcoins.get_difficulty()

For now, this library is only a wrapper to BlockExplorer’s stats API. This might change as the project matures.


  • Getting the current difficulty as a multiple of the minimum difficulty (highest target)


To install bitcoins, simply:

$ pip install bitcoins

Or, if you have to:

$ easy_install bitcoins

But, you probably shouldn’t do that.
