Pygcointools

Python library for Gcoin signatures and transactions

Usage:

Import

from gcoin import *

Generate private key

priv = sha256('some big long brainwallet password')

Get public key from private key

pub = privtopub(priv)

Get address from public key

addr = pubtoaddr(pub)

Sign raw transaction

To sign a raw transaction, call signall to get the signed transaction. The first parameter is the raw transaction and the second parameter is the private key.

tx = signall(tx, priv)

Generate multisig address

To generate an m of n multisig address, call mk_multisig_script to get the redemption script first. Then pass the redemption script to scriptaddr to get the multisignature address.

The first parameter of mk_multisig_script is a list of public keys and the second parameter is the number of signatures required.

script = mk_multisig_script([pub1, pub2, ..., pubn], m)
maddr = scriptaddr(script)

Sign raw multisig transaction

Signing a multisig transaction just simply calls signall_multisig. The first parameter of signall_multisig is the original raw transaction. The second parameter is the redemption script derived from mk_multisig_script. The last parameter is a list of private keys that you want to sign.

tx = signall_multisig(tx, script, [priv1, priv2, ..., privn])
