Bindings for the NeoScrypt proof-of-work algorithm

Project description


  • src/ || neoscrypt source files (C)
  • scripts/ || ie. cross-compiling scripts to create .so, .dylib or dll
  • tests/ || python neoscrypt testfile

This Software needs compile (gcc, mingw ...)

Install from git

Compiling and installing as PythonModule (python2/python3)::

bash:~/: sudo python3 -m pip install git+
bash:~/: git clone git+
bash:~/: cd python-neoscrypt
bash:~/: python-neoscrypt/: sudo python3 install

Pypi Version install will be available ::

bash:~/: pip install neoscrypt


NeoScrypt is a strong memory intensive key derivation function.

  • Compile time definitions: --DNEOSCRYPT_SHA256 enables optional SHA-256
  • support (Scrypt compatibility); --DNEOSCRYPT_BLAKE256 enables optional
  • BLAKE-256 support; --DNEOSCRYPT_OPT enables FastKDF performance
  • optimisations; --DNEOSCRYPT_ASM enables 32-bit and 64-bit assembly
  • optimisations; --DNEOSCRYPT_MINER_4WAY enables 4-way mining per thread (requires -DNEOSCRYPT_ASM).
