    crypto-wallets

    Javascript/Node library for generating cryptocurrency addresses and private keys.

    Supported Currencies:

    • Bitcoin (BTC)
    • Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
    • Dogecoin (DOGE)
    • Ethereum (ETH)
    • IOTA (IOTA)
    • Litecoin (LTC)
    • Monero (XMR)
    • Namecoin (NMC)
    • Peercoin (PPC)
    • Tezos (XTZ)

    Usage

    Install crypto-wallets with npm install --save crypto-wallets

    Example: Generate Bitcoin Wallet

    var cw = require('crypto-wallets');
    var bitcoinWallet = cw.generateWallet('BTC');
    console.log("Address: " + bitcoinWallet.address);
    console.log("Private Key: " + bitcoinWallet.privateKey);
    

    Example: Generate Ethereum Wallet

    var cw = require('crypto-wallets');
    var ethWallet = cw.generateWallet('ETH');
    console.log("Address: " + ethWallet.address);
    console.log("Private Key: " + ethWallet.privateKey);
    

    Example: Generate Monero Wallet

    Note: Generating Monero (XMR) and IOTA (IOTA) wallets are both asynchronous and return a promise, unlike the other currencies.

    var cw = require('crypto-wallets');
    cw.generateWallet('XMR').then(function(moneroWallet){
        console.log("Address: " + moneroWallet.address);
        console.log("Private Key: " + moneroWallet.privateKey);
    });
    

    CLI - Command Line Interface

    crypto-wallets can also be used in the command line.

    Commands:

    generate <currency> [number] [--save <file>]

    Generates and prints wallets in given currency. If [number] is not given, it defaults to 1. If the optional --save flag is provided, the generated wallets will be saved to the specified file in CSV format.

    >crypto-wallets verify btc foo bar
