Simple wallet for Cryptocurrencies

Project description


A simple wallet for cryptocurrencies that can:

  • Create, import, export accounts
  • Sign transactions


The interactive tool cryptux is meant to be simple:

$ cryptux
usage: cryptux [-h] [-t {BITCOIN}]

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -t {BITCOIN}, --coin-type {BITCOIN}
                        coin type to generate account address for

At the moment of writing, only Bitcoin is supported. Ethereum account support is coming soon.

Developer Guide

Before trying to run tools/cryptux locally, make sure it uses local libraries by running:

python develop

It’s highly recommended that you use the package virtualenvwrapper.

To test the changes without publishing to PyPI, force pip to install from local dir:

pip install -e /path/to/cryptux

Publishing to test PyPI can be done via this command:

python sdist upload -r testpypi

Use flake8 to detect PEP8 violations and format code nicely using yapf -i, do check the project YAPF.


There are 3 ways to generate a Bitcoin address with cryptux:

  • Generate from private key in HEX
  • Generate from private key in WIF format
  • Generate private key offline and derive account address

A sample session would go like this:

$ cryptux -t BITCOIN
Private key format (WIF/HEX/NEW): new
Network type (MAINNET/TESTNET): mainnet
Public key format (COMPRESSED/UNCOMPRESSED): compressed
Remember to protect the Private Key!
Private Key in HEX: 7161B2F99B4F0DB740C27A35B55FDDAE0FD90A8C23789291106667D29F1859F6
Private Key in WIF: L127LBiTmhFXoXsz1qymwNrbsmk1s71kBycoi5VH3i22tDekzYY1
Network type: MAINNET
Public key format: COMPRESSED
Generated Bitcoin address: 193GxFgNCtpvsYPnWErEvXNETgGiJ7HG5F
