A python library for bitcoin cryptography

btclib is a python3 type annotated library intended for teaching and demonstration of the elliptic curve cryptography used in bitcoin, originally developed for the Bitcoin and Blockchain Technology course at University of Milano-Bicocca and Politecnico di Milano.

The major focus of this new v2019.6.12 release is the documentation, now automatically generated and available at Hopefully this will help introducing new users and devs to the library and existing users/devs to deal with any refactoring.

The major new feature is Bitcoin message signing with compact encoding.

The library adopts the MIT licence: as such it can be used with no real constraints. We encourage students, researchers, and devs to test it and contribute to its development.
