bitcore-safe v7.3.1

A platform to build Safe and blockchain-based applications.


NPM Package Build Status

Infrastructure to build Safe and blockchain-based applications for the next generation of financial technology.

Note: If you're looking for the Bitcore-Safe Library please see:

Getting Started

Before you begin you'll need to have Node.js v4+ installed. There are several options for installation. One method is to use nvm to easily switch between different versions, or download directly from Node.js.

npm install -g bitcore-safe

Spin up a full node and join the network:

npm install -g bitcore-safe

You can then view the Insight block explorer at the default location: http://localhost:3001/insight, and your configuration file will be found in your home directory at ~/.bitcore.

Create a transaction:

var bitcore = require('bitcore-safe');
var transaction = new bitcore.Transaction();
var transaction.from(unspent).to(address, amount);
