Bitcoinhub is a community driven news aggregator for Bitcoin. It is based on the idea of Hacker News, with similar functionality and simplicity. is the demonstration site for a broker platform for Submarine Swaps using the Lightning Network, which was documented in an article series on my blog. The purpose was to show how to integrate Bitcoin and the Lightning Network using Go. It acts as a starting point to experiment with and learn more about it in a fun environment. Forking the repository on GitHub and adding new features to the broker platform is encouraged.


Bit is a Bitcoin library written in Python and was designed from the beginning to feel intuitive, be effortless to use, and have readable source code. It was initially developed by Ofek Lev in 2016. It has since become popular and found new contributors, among which is the excellent Teran McKinney and me. I have been working on adding new features to Bit since 2017. Notable features include: Multi-signature, Segwit, transaction batching, and Mark Erhardt’s Branch-and-Bound coin selection.
