Bitcoin - Most popular Crypto Currency

  •        125

Bitcoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority or banks; managing transactions and the issuing of bitcoins is carried out collectively by the network. Bitcoin is open-source; its design is public, nobody owns or controls Bitcoin and everyone can take part. Through many of its unique properties, Bitcoin allows exciting uses that could not be covered by any previous payment system.

Zcash - Internet Money

  •    C++

Zcash is an implementation of the "Zerocash" protocol. Based on Bitcoin's code, it intends to offer a far higher standard of privacy through a sophisticated zero-knowledge proving scheme that preserves confidentiality of transaction metadata. Bitcoin and most cryptocurrencies expose your entire payment history to the public. Zcash is the first open, permissionless cryptocurrency that can fully protect the privacy of transactions using zero-knowledge cryptography.

crypto-whale-watching-app - Python Dash app that tracks whale activity in cryptocurrency markets.

  •    Python

Welcome! This is a Python-based Dash app meant to track whale activity in buy / sell walls on crypto-currency exchanges (presently just operational for GDAX, but more exchanges to come). This document aims to explain the purpose, functionality, and future of this project. Please do share this with your fellow coders / traders / crypto-aficionados, donate via the donation addresses included in the "Support Needed" section below, and contribute to the future of this project by calling out issues, requesting new features, and submitting pull requests to improve the app. If you want to use a hosted version of the app, check out this link here which has been graciously hosted by a member of the Ethereum community while we raise money via donations to migrate to AWS. If for any reason the page does not load properly, feel free to let us know via an issue, but more than likely it is because we are updating to the newest version of the codebase or performing maintenance.

webcoin - :globe_with_meridians::moneybag: SPV Bitcoin client for Node.js and the browser

  •    Javascript

Webcoin is a Bitcoin client that works in Node.js and the browser. In the browser, it uses WebRTC to make P2P connections rather than relying on a centralized server to get data (like all the other JS Bitcoin libraries). It's kind of like the Bitcoin equivalent of WebTorrent.I am currently making some major refactors to the codebase, and documenting all of it. Much of the code in this repo is being broken out into smaller modules, each with comprehensive tests and docs.

tinychain - A pocket-sized implementation of Bitcoin

  •    Python

Tinychain is a pocket-sized implementation of Bitcoin. Its goal is to be a compact, understandable, working incarnation of the Nakamoto consensus algorithm at the expense of advanced functionality, speed, and any real usefulness. I wrote it primarily to understand Bitcoin better, but hopefully it can serve as a jumping-off point for programmers who are interested in (but don't have intimate familiarity with) Bitcoin or cryptocurrency. At the very least, it can be a piñata for protocol developers who actually know what they're doing.

bitid - Bitcoin Authentication Open Protocol

  •    

Pure Bitcoin sites and applications shouldn’t have to rely on artificial identification methods such as usernames and passwords. BitID is an open protocol allowing simple and secure authentication using public-key cryptography.Classical password authentication is an insecure process that could be solved with public key cryptography. The problem however is that it theoretically offloads a lot of complexity and responsibility on the user. Managing private keys securely is complex. However this complexity is already being addressed in the Bitcoin ecosystem. So doing public key authentication is practically a free lunch to bitcoiners.

bitauth - Authenticate with web services utilizing the same strategy as Bitcoin.

  •    Javascript

BitAuth is a way to do secure, passwordless authentication using the cryptography in Bitcoin. Instead of using a shared secret, the client signs each request using a private key and the server checks to make sure the signature is valid and matches the public key.BitAuth uses the same technology in Bitcoin. A public private key pair is created using elliptic curve secp256k1. The public SIN (System identification number), like a bitcoin address, is the RIPEMD 160, SHA256 hash of the public key. See https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Identity_protocol_v1 for complete details.
