Communicate with bitcoind via JSON-RPC
node-bitcoin is a simple wrapper for the Bitcoin client's JSON-RPC API.
The API is equivalent to the API document here.
The methods are exposed as lower camelcase methods on the
object, or you may call the API directly using the
This module uses callbacks, which is the prevalent way to work with asynchronous functions in Node.js. If you'd like to instead use promises, then please see the bitcoin-promise module.
npm install bitcoin
// all config options are optionalvar client =host: 'localhost'port: 8332user: 'username'pass: 'password'timeout: 30000;
var batch = ;for var i = 0; i < 10; ++ibatch;client;
If you're using this to connect to bitcoind across a network it is highly
recommended to enable
ssl, otherwise an attacker may intercept your RPC credentials
resulting in theft of your bitcoins.
ssl by setting the configuration option to
option (verifies the server certificate) will also be enabled by default. It is
highly recommended to specify the
sslCa as well, even if your bitcoind has
a certificate signed by an actual CA, to ensure you are connecting
to your own bitcoind.
