# BitcoinLib


Want to interact with the Bitcoin network through a DIY app? Look no further, this library 
is about doing it with [Elixir]( in a very abstract way. It 
keeps the cryptography jargon to a minimum, while sticking to the 
[Bitcoin glossary](

The easiest way to start is to try the [wallet operations livebook](

## Donations

This library is being built in the wild according to these principles

- Free to use
- Developer friendly
- Modular

Arguably, the most important part is that it is `unbiased`.

If you want to keep it that way, and want to promote its active development, please send donations
here: `bc1qs0hd8wws09jm68fg4ymnsdvxdjggsg3jg09xh4`

That address, along with the private key that goes with it have both been created using the current lib.
The same will apply for very transaction created to spend said funds.

Thank you!

## How to use

First, make sure you've got [elixir set up]( and that you
[know the language's basics](

Then, create a project and add the dependency in `mix.exs`.

def deps do
    {:bitcoinlib, "~> 0.4.3"}

Finally, head to the [private key creation]( 
documentation to get started.

## Technicalities

### This lib can

- Generate entropy with dice rolls
- Create private keys
- Derive public keys from private keys
- Handle Hierarchical Deterministic (HD) Wallets, including
  - Seed Phrases
  - Derivation Paths
- Serialize/Deserialize Private Keys (`xprv`, `yprv`, `zprv`)
- Serialize/Deserialize Public Keys  (`xpub`, `ypub`, `zpub`)
- Generate Addresses
- Sign P2PKH transactions

#### Mid term goals

- Sign Transactions (PSBT)
- Taproot support

### Supported address types

| Address Type          | Description             | Starts With  | Supported     |
| P2PKH                 | Pay to Primary Key Hash | `1`          | ✅            |
| P2WPKH-nested-in-P2SH | Nested Segwit           | `3`          | ✅            |
| P2WPKH                | Native Segwit           | `bc1q`       | ✅            |
| P2TR                  | Taproot                 | `bc1p`       | Eventually... |
