The bitcore-p2p module provides peer-to-peer networking capabilities for Bitcore, and includes Peer and Pool classes. A Message class is also exposed, in addition to several types of messages. Pool will maintain connection to several peers, Peers represents a node in the bitcoin network, and Message represents data sent to and from a Peer. For detailed technical information about the bitcoin protocol, please visit the Protocol Specification on the Bitcoin Wiki.


Peer-to-peer is implemented as a separate module.

For node projects:

npm install bitcore-p2p --save

Quick Start

var Peer = require('bitcore-p2p').Peer;
var peer = new Peer({host: ''});

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