BitSV: Bitcoin made easy.¶
BitSV is so easy to use:
>>> import bitsv >>> my_key = bitsv.Key('YourPrivateKeyGoesHere') # Defaults to "main" network >>> my_key.get_balance() 10000000 # satoshis >>> # Can include a long list of tuples as outputs >>> outputs = [ >>> # Donate to AustEcon! (Currency conversion via api) >>> ('1PdvVPTzXmo4cSs68HctLUxAdW917UZtC8', 0.10, 'usd'), # $USD 0.10 as bsv >>> ('1PdvVPTzXmo4cSs68HctLUxAdW917UZtC8', 0.0001, 'bsv') >>> ] >>> my_key.send(outputs) 'dec895d1aa0e820984c5748984ba36854163ec3d6847c94e82a921765c5b23e1'

Here you will find everything you need to know about the development of BitSV and the community surrounding it.
Up ahead is BitSV’s API and a few notes about design decisions. Beware the pedantry, or lack thereof.
Well done! There will be more soon, but right now you have nothing left to see. Remember, a watched pot never boils.
