Bitcore P2P

NPM Package Build Status Coverage Status

bitcore-p2p adds Bitcoin protocol support for Bitcore.

See the main bitcore repo for more information.

Getting Started

npm install bitcore-p2p

In order to connect to the Bitcoin network, you'll need to know the IP address of at least one node of the network, or use Pool to discover peers using a DNS seed.

var Peer = require('bitcore-p2p').Peer;

var peer = new Peer({host: '127.0.0.1'});

peer.on('ready', function() {
  // peer info
  console.log(peer.version, peer.subversion, peer.bestHeight);
});
peer.on('disconnect', function() {
  console.log('connection closed');
});
peer.connect();

Then, you can get information from other peers by using:

// handle events
peer.on('inv', function(message) {
  // message.inventory[]
});
peer.on('tx', function(message) {
  // message.transaction
});

Take a look at the bitcore guide on the usage of the Peer class.
