Python library for working with the NANO cryptocurrency protocol

Project description


  • Solve and verify proof-of-work
  • Create and deserialize legacy and universal blocks
  • Account generation from seed using the same algorithm as the original NANO wallet and NanoVault
  • Functions for converting between different NANO denominations
  • High performance cryptographic operations using C extensions (signing and verifying blocks, and solving block proof-of-work) * Proof-of-work solving supports SSE2, SSSE3, SSE4.1 and AVX instruction sets for improved performance. The best supported implementation is selected at runtime with a fallback implementation with universal compatibility.
  • Backed by automated tests
  • Compatible with Python 3.4 and up
  • Licensed under the very permissive Creative Commons Zero license


An online copy of the documentation can be found at [Read the Docs](

You can also build the documentation yourself by running python build_sphinx.


The script comes with a few additional commands besides installation:

  • build_sphinx * Build the documentation in build/sphinx/html.
  • test * Run tests using pytest
  • speed * Run a benchmark testing the performance of various cryptographic operations used in the library.
