Informations about the package bitcoin-lib


PHP libraries implementing bitcoin key functions, as well as BIP32 and electrum.


NB: This library is outdated, and no longer maintained. BC breaks will not be accepted for this reason. For a newer library, please see

The library intends to expose a lot of general functionality which isn't available using the RPC (like deterministic addresses).

It also allows you to reduce the number of queries that are made to bitcoind, such as createrawtransaction/signrawtransaction/decoderawtransaction. As such, such, use of bitcoin RPC functionality can be kept to a minimum.


If this library powers your project and you're feeling tipsy, buy me lunch some day! 1sCVtkEhQmvp3D4K22Pw9xhFPTDWFh8SZ
