Python wrapper for accessing BlockCypher API

Project description

Bitmast BlockCypher wrapper

A python wrapper for accessing BlockCypher API and selected bitcoin features

The Bitmast BlockCypher tool is a python implementation of the BlockCypher, https://www.blockcypher.com/quickstart/.

Motivation

The BlockCypher API while a very rich collection of blockchain tools and services does not readily fit the design model needed by Bitmast in deploying custom blockchain payment and other exchange services. To augment the work done by BlockCypher, Bitmast Digital Services designed and developed this wrapper which can be integrated to other python based frameworks or tools for developing applications for niche markets.

Dependencies

The wrapper requires blockcyher and bitcoinlib. The target Python language for current implmentation is Python 3.6.8

Build Status

Version: 1.0.1

Current development is version 1.0.1. This is considered the Alpha Edition.

Features

Support PayStack features includes:

  • Generate bitcoin or registered blockchain wallets and addresses
  • Generate HD wallet for bitcoin
  • Sign blockchain transactions locally to improve security of user's wallet
  • Generate private and public keys
  • Verify addresses for given a network
  • Create datastructures that can be used to parse blockchain API responses into native Python classes

Contributing
