The private key is the important key, since it is required to access the bitcoins and the other keys can be generated from it. The public key hash is the Bitcoin address you see published. I used the following code snippet  to generate a private key in WIF format and an address. The private key is simply a random bit number. Finally, the private key is encoded in Base58Check to generate the WIF encoding used to enter a private key into Bitcoin client software.
Inside a transaction A transaction is the basic operation in the Bitcoin system. You might expect that a transaction simply moves some bitcoins from one address to another address, but it's more complicated than that. A Bitcoin transaction moves bitcoins between one or more inputs and outputs. Each input is a transaction and address supplying bitcoins. Each output is an address receiving bitcoin, along with the amount of bitcoins going to that address. A sample Bitcoin transaction. Transaction C spends.
The diagram above shows a sample transaction "C". In this transaction,. Note that arrows are references to the previous outputs, so are backwards to the flow of bitcoins. For the outputs,. The leftover. Note that the. Each input used must be entirely spent in a transaction. If an address received bitcoins in a transaction and you just want to spend 1 bitcoin, the transaction must spend all The solution is to use a second output for change , which returns the 99 leftover bitcoins back to you.
Transactions can also include fees. If there are any bitcoins left over after adding up the inputs and subtracting the outputs, the remainder is a fee paid to the miner. The fee isn't strictly required, but transactions without a fee will be a low priority for miners and may not be processed for days or may be discarded entirely.
Manually creating a transaction For my experiment I used a simple transaction with one input and one output, which is shown below. I started by bying bitcoins from Coinbase and putting 0. Thus, the destination address will receive 0. Structure of the example Bitcoin transaction. Following the specification , the unsigned transaction can be assembled fairly easily, as shown below.
There is one input, which is using output 0 the first output from transaction 81b4c Note that this transaction hash is inconveniently reversed in the transaction. The output amount is 0. The cryptographic parts - scriptSig and scriptPubKey - are more complex and will be discussed later.
It's just a matter of packing the data into binary. Signing the transaction is the hard part, as you'll see next. How Bitcoin transactions are signed The following diagram gives a simplified view of how transactions are signed and linked together. The contents of the transaction including the hash of the previous transaction are hashed and signed with B's private key.
In addition, B's public key is included in the transaction. By performing several steps, anyone can verify that the transaction is authorized by B. First, B's public key must correspond to B's address in the previous transaction, proving the public key is valid. The address can easily be derived from the public key, as explained earlier. Next, B's signature of the transaction can be verified using the B's public key in the transaction. These steps ensure that the transaction is valid and authorized by B.
One unexpected part of Bitcoin is that B's public key isn't made public until it is used in a transaction. With this system, bitcoins are passed from address to address through a chain of transactions. Each step in the chain can be verified to ensure that bitcoins are being spent validly.
Note that transactions can have multiple inputs and outputs in general, so the chain branches out into a tree. How Bitcoin transactions are chained together. In fact, there is a small program inside each transaction that gets executed to decide if a transaction is valid. This program is written in Script , the stack-based Bitcoin scripting language. Complex redemption conditions can be expressed in this language. For instance, an escrow system can require two out of three specific users must sign the transaction to spend it.
Or various types of contracts can be set up. It includes arithmetic, bitwise operations, string operations, conditionals, and stack manipulation. In order to ensure that scripts terminate, the language does not contain any looping operations. As a consequence, it is not Turing-complete. In practice, however, only a few types of transactions are supported.
The script in the old transaction is called scriptPubKey and the script in the new transaction is called scriptSig. To verify a transaction, the scriptSig executed followed by the scriptPubKey. If the script completes successfully, the transaction is valid and the Bitcoin can be spent.
Otherwise, the transaction is invalid. The point of this is that the scriptPubKey in the old transaction defines the conditions for spending the bitcoins. The scriptSig in the new transaction must provide the data to satisfy the conditions. In a standard transaction, the scriptSig pushes the signature generated from the private key to the stack, followed by the public key. Next, the scriptPubKey from the source transaction is executed to verify the public key and then verify the signature.
This proves that the public key is valid. This proves that the signature is valid. Signing the transaction I found signing the transaction to be the hardest part of using Bitcoin manually, with a process that is surprisingly difficult and error-prone.
The basic idea is to use the ECDSA elliptic curve algorithm and the private key to generate a digital signature of the transaction, but the details are tricky. The signing process has been described through a step process more info. Click the thumbnail below for a detailed diagram of the process. The biggest complication is the signature appears in the middle of the transaction, which raises the question of how to sign the transaction before you have the signature.
To avoid this problem, the scriptPubKey script is copied from the source transaction into the spending transaction i. Then the signature is turned into code in the Script language, creating the scriptSig script that is embedded in the transaction. It appears that using the previous transaction's scriptPubKey during signing is for historical reasons rather than any logical reason.
One step that tripped me up is the hash type. Before signing, the transaction has a hash type constant temporarily appended. After signing, this hash type is removed from the end of the transaction and appended to the scriptSig. Another annoying thing about the Bitcoin protocol is that the signature and public key are both bit elliptic curve values, but they are represented in totally different ways: the signature is encoded with DER encoding but the public key is represented as plain bytes.
Update Feb : An important side-effect of the signature changing every time is that if you re-sign a transaction, the transaction's hash will change. This is known as Transaction Malleability. There are also ways that third parties can modify transactions in trivial ways that change the hash but not the meaning of the transaction. Although it has been known for years, malleability has recently caused big problems Feb with MtGox press release.
With these complications it took me a long time to get the signature to work. Eventually, though, I got all the bugs out of my signing code and succesfully signed a transaction. Here's the code snippet I used. This proves I am allowed to spend these bitcoins, making the transaction valid. Note that this script is executed at some arbitrary time in the future when the bitcoins are spent. The effect is that only the owner of the private key for this address can spend the bitcoins, so that address is in effect the owner.
The final transaction is shown below. This combines the scriptSig and scriptPubKey above with the unsigned transaction described earlier. I had heard about elliptic curves before in the context of solving Fermat's Last Theorem, so I was curious about what they are. The mathematics of elliptic curves is interesting, so I'll take a detour and give a quick overview. The name elliptic curve is confusing: elliptic curves are not ellipses, do not look anything like ellipses, and they have very little to do with ellipses.
Due to the special nature of elliptic curves, addition defined in this way works "normally" and forms a group. With addition defined, you can define integer multiplication: e. What makes elliptic curves useful cryptographically is that it's fast to do integer multiplication, but division basically requires brute force. In elliptic curve cryptography, the secret number would be the private key and the point Q on the curve would be the public key.
In cryptography, instead of using real-valued points on the curve, the coordinates are integers modulo a prime. Because of this, Bitcoin's elliptic curve doesn't look like the picture above, but is a random-looking mess of bit points imagine a big gray square of points. The Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm ECDSA takes a message hash, and then does some straightforward elliptic curve arithmetic using the message, the private key, and a random number  to generate a new point on the curve that gives a signature.
Anyone who has the public key, the message, and the signature can do some simple elliptic curve arithmetic to verify that the signature is valid. Thus, only the person with the private key can sign a message, but anyone with the public key can verify the message. For more on elliptic curves, see the references . Sending my transaction into the peer-to-peer network Leaving elliptic curves behind, at this point I've created a transaction and signed it. The next step is to send it into the peer-to-peer network, where it will be picked up by miners and incorporated into a block.
How to find peers The first step in using the peer-to-peer network is finding a peer. The list of peers changes every few seconds, whenever someone runs a client. Once a node is connected to a peer node, they share new peers by exchanging addr messages whenever a new peer is discovered. Thus, new peers rapidly spread through the system. There's a chicken-and-egg problem, though, of how to find the first peer. Bitcoin clients solve this problem with several methods.
Several reliable peers are registered in DNS under the name bitseed. By doing a nslookup, a client gets the IP addresses of these peers, and hopefully one of them will work. If that doesn't work, a seed list of peers is hardcoded into the client. Peers enter and leave the network when ordinary users start and stop Bitcoin clients, so there is a lot of turnover in clients. The clients I use are unlikely to be operational right now, so you'll need to find new peers if you want to do experiments.
You may need to try a bunch to find one that works. Talking to peers Once I had the address of a working peer, the next step was to send my transaction into the peer-to-peer network. I opened a TCP connection to an arbitrary peer on port , started sending messages, and received messages in turn. The Bitcoin peer-to-peer protocol is pretty forgiving; peers would keep communicating even if I totally messed up requests. Important note: as a few people pointed out, if you want to experiment you should use the Bitcoin Testnet , which lets you experiment with "fake" bitcoins, since it's easy to lose your valuable bitcoins if you mess up on the real network.
For example, if you forget the change address in a transaction, excess bitcoins will go to the miners as a fee. The protocol consists of about 24 different message types. Each message is a fairly straightforward binary blob containing an ASCII command name and a binary payload appropriate to the command. The protocol is well-documented on the Bitcoin wiki. The first step when connecting to a peer is to establish the connection by exchanging version messages.
First I send a version message with my protocol version number  , address, and a few other things. The peer sends its version message back. After this, nodes are supposed to acknowledge the version message with a verack message. As I mentioned, the protocol is forgiving - everything works fine even if I skip the verack. Generating the version message isn't totally trivial since it has a bunch of fields, but it can be created with a few lines of Python.
Sending a transaction: tx I sent the transaction into the peer-to-peer network with the stripped-down Python script below. The script sends a version message, receives and ignores the peer's version and verack messages, and then sends the transaction as a tx message. The hex string is the transaction that I created earlier. The following screenshot shows how sending my transaction appears in the Wireshark network analysis program . I wrote Python scripts to process Bitcoin network traffic, but to keep things simple I'll just use Wireshark here.
The "tx" message type is visible in the ASCII dump, followed on the next line by the start of my transaction 01 A transaction uploaded to Bitcoin, as seen in Wireshark. To monitor the progress of my transaction, I had a socket opened to another random peer. Five seconds after sending my transaction, the other peer sent me a tx message with the hash of the transaction I just sent.
Thus, it took just a few seconds for my transaction to get passed around the peer-to-peer network, or at least part of it. Victory: my transaction is mined After sending my transaction into the peer-to-peer network, I needed to wait for it to be mined before I could claim victory.
Ten minutes later my script received an inv message with a new block see Wireshark trace below. Checking this block showed that it contained my transaction, proving my transaction worked. I could also verify the success of this transaction by looking in my Bitcoin wallet and by checking online.
Thus, after a lot of effort, I had successfully created a transaction manually and had it accepted by the system. Needless to say, my first few transaction attempts weren't successful - my faulty transactions vanished into the network, never to be seen again. My transaction was mined by the large GHash. IO mining pool, into block with hash a27b1d6eb8ceceeda3b3ecee. The hash is reversed in inv message above: ee Note that the hash starts with a large number of zeros - finding such a literally one in a quintillion value is what makes mining so difficult.
This particular block contains transactions, of which my transaction is just one. For mining this block, the miners received the reward of 25 bitcoins, and total fees of 0. I paid a fee of 0. The mining process is very interesting, but I'll leave that for a future article. Bitcoin mining normally uses special-purpose ASIC hardware, designed to compute hashes at high speed. Photo credit: Gastev , CC:by Conclusion Using the raw Bitcoin protocol turned out to be harder than I expected, but I learned a lot about bitcoins along the way, and I hope you did too.
My code is purely for demonstration - if you actually want to use bitcoins through Python, use a real library  rather than my code. Notes and references  The original Bitcoin client is Bitcoin-qt. In case you're wondering why qt , the client uses the common Qt UI framework. Alternatively you can use wallet software that doesn't participate in the peer-to-peer network, such as Electrum or MultiBit.
Or you can use an online wallet such as Blockchain. The true identity of Satoshi Nakamoto is unknown, although there are many theories. It's not a problem with my shift key - the "official" style is to capitalize Bitcoin when referring to the system, and lower-case bitcoins when referring to the currency units.
For a rant on how messed up it is, see Criticisms of Bitcoin's raw txn format. Type sendrawtransaction a1b2c3d This has the advantage of providing information in the debug log if the transaction is rejected. If you just want to experiment with the Bitcoin network, this is much, much easier than my manual approach. See discussion. Using one round of SHA is subject to a length extension attack , which explains why double-hashing is used. It is similar to base 64 encoding, except it omits the O, 0, I, and l characters to avoid ambiguity in printed text.
A 4-byte checksum guards against errors, since using an erroneous bitcoin address will cause the bitcoins to be lost forever. You will also need the ecdsa cryptography library. The answer is brute force - I ran the address generation script overnight and collected some good addresses. These addresses made it much easier to recognize my transactions in my testing.
There are scripts and websites that will generate these "vanity" addresses for you. This recent Reddit discussion of fees is also interesting. I find it very confusing though, since it doesn't distinguish between the address and the public key. One interesting type is the 2-of-3 escrow transaction, where two out of three parties must sign the transaction to release the bitcoins. Bitrated is one site that provides these. Some miners will accept non-standard transactions directly, though. For discussion, see Why TxPrev.
PkScript is inserted into TxCopy during signature check? Sony used a constant instead of a random number in the PlayStation 3, allowing the private key to be determined. In an incident related to Bitcoin, a weakness in the random number generator allowed bitcoins to be stolen from Android clients.
This is why the keys in Bitcoin are bit keys. Three Fermat trails to elliptic curves includes a discussion of how Fermat's Last Theorem was solved with elliptic curves. I'm using version somewhat arbitrarily.
For more information on finding Bitcoin peers, see How Bitcoin clients find each other or Satoshi client node discovery. Email This BlogThis! Good article. I did this exercise myself for largely the same purpose. In addition, I also wanted to see how multisig transactions would work for an escrow service and at the time no wallets had implemented them.
It took a long time and lots of debugging to make the rather simple transactions work :. In note 1, I'd suggest you replace Armory with Electrum -- Armory actually does participate, as it runs an instance of bitcoind in the background. Regards, TomazZ. Read your article with great enthusiasm.
Excellent explanations of some of the very nuanced parts of the network that only the core developers seem to understand. FYI that random number generator you are using for making the private keys in the very first gist is not secure enough for crypto. Electrum uses python ecdsa which uses os. Great article. Do you also have a Dogecoin address?
I'd like to donate, but currently don't have an accessible Bitcoin wallet with enough balance. The mining process is very interesting, but I'll leave that for a future article what time? I waiting for this. Very nice. Small comment: you only mention the old uncompressed format for public keys. There is a much shorter one, namely 0x02 or 0x03 followed by only the X coordinate, 0x03 in case of odd y and 0x02 in case of even.
This encoding is preferred because it takes less space in the blockchain and network. Thanks everyone for the comments. Much dogecoin donation. Very generous. So thanks. And thank you everyone for the Bitcoin donations too. It's all going for wells in Africa. Ken, how many transactions are in a typical block? I'm wondering about the relative value of the new bitcoins created via mining a block vs. Ken, Such a great article, and I love that you included the code.
Still, I'm having trouble getting through the python. I imported ecdsa just fine, but I still can't 'compile' my way through lines like return utils. Even keyUtils etc bring up errors both in python 2. Hi John! Conclusion: the fee per transaction is small but not trivial, and the mining cost per block is insanely large. Great article, it was a very clear explanation for a newbie like me. Donation sent to the cause, also very nice initiative :.
Good Job on the article. I went through the same process of building a tx from scratch, but you've gone the extra mile and documented it nicely. Excellent article! I am a bitcoin enthusiast who go interested in this field exactly three days ago! It was the MtGox collapse that triggered my interest. And right now, bitcoin protocol research is taking all my time. Anyway, I have couple of questions which I hope you would be able to answer.
What bitcoin protocol message goes out on the wire when a miner successfully solves a block and releases it into the wild? Assuming I have the entire block chain on my laptop. I know CPU mining is not economical any more. But can I still try it as a long shot lottery? DragonSonix DragonSonix 41 2 2 bronze badges. For the record, there is a default C implementation of Cryptonight in Monero, so you'd need to port the asm only once the rest works.
Ive been thinking of doing the same thing. Ive tried compiling xmr-stak-power which almost worked but got an error. Ive been trying to get a cluster going to emulate a different architecture to see if i can still mine a decent amount of monero. But no luck yet as things become tedious.
There is a site that will translate any code into assembly online. Google 'compile explorer'. Or 'online compiler assembly translater'. I would get this done but I dont know where to start or finish with this. Add a comment. Active Oldest Votes. Improve this answer. Whilst much of the crypto specific code is implemented in C, a huge amount of that code is byte order dependent. There is actually very little written in asm, that is not the hurdle to a PPC port, it's the endianess in the crypto math.
Could you give an example to look at please? Also every hash algorithm keccak etc are x little endian. You don't have a line number in your link. I'm asking for some example of code that's little endian only, not types which are little endian. Show 6 more comments. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.

It would also save you a lot of money in warranty repairs for Nvidia and other developers! Cryptocreeping should void the warrenty! Have a card that has the alterted firmware have a statement at boot that says this card has been used for cryptocreeping and has no warranty, has limited display, and may be unreliable due to extreme use.
Nvidia engeneers are very smart! I am certain they could setup detection within the card that would detect these calculations and also prevent homebrew firmware upgrades by using a secret hash. And you just keep piling on more stupid. Bricking a device is illegal and goes against various legislation about the usability of bought and paid for devices under US Law. And then the posters who have literally no clue jump on the fail train.
Yes, but that list is small, and there can be workarounds to use CUDA through mainstay APIs but in a controlled fashion rather than just directly. Yes it would mean developers would have to get off their lazy butts and patch the games. Your argument against this is pointless. If you used UNIX like systems, you'd know. When Windows NT first introduced the HAL, developers nearly went thermonuclear meltdown over the fact they would have to develop to a stricter API access layer and would have to program to an actual SDK, but the gaming industry swallowed it's pride, took the spiked steel knuckled punch on the chin, bled for a while, and trudged onward with a shattered jaw that eventually healed between the release of Windows and Windows XP.
By limiting access, it forces developers to use an Nvidia supplied SDK under license. This also means the developers would have to know what they can and can't use the SDK for. If mining breaks the Terms of Service, then Nvidia can reserve the right to shut down development using their technology.
Also some of those facts are not correct. Mining actually wears out cards faster by running them at full capacity for endless hours. Bricking a device is not legal, but cutting of functions to a device for unintended usage is not bricking it. If you don't like it, there is another company that does support blockchain and while their drivers are a load of horse manure for gamers, they are more in tune with miners. You might want to go seek their assistance.
Don't a lot of miners use servers? How hard would it be to prevent new cards to work on servers? I am not an engineer, but I am certain that there are several options that the developers are just not interested in examining since selling to miners assures short term maximum profit as opposed to long term sustainability of the gaming industry.

If this were true, the warranties on cards made that have no display functionality would be longer not shorter than that of video cards gamers use! Display cards have a three year warranty. Non Display cards made for mining have only a one year warranty.

Sora said: Cards have no writable region of nvram for user mode storage Same as above, maybe 12 cents now for each card. You literally beg to be looked down upon because you're so damn ignorant. James Powell said: Also some of those facts are not correct. No, your understanding is what is incorrect. False: mining cards are operated at lower clocks and utilise only a portion of the gpu compared to video gaming; which utilises the alu's, rops, filter units, tesselation and geometric engines.
Video gaming is more intense on the entire card than mining is to a single region. Miners intentionally underclock to reduce stress on the chip, and the cuda driver automatically uses a P2 state which reduces the memory clock rate. Removing advertised functionality is illegal. I don't have to not like it, its not going to happen. Sora said: You literally beg to be looked down upon because you're so damn ignorant.
Once again, condescension and name calling is not an argument, nor is it constructive. Sora said: False: mining cards are operated at lower clocks and utilise only a portion of the gpu compared to video gaming; which utilises the alu's, rops, filter units, tesselation and geometric engines. Then why are warrenties on these cards only one year compared to display cards? Sora said: Miners intentionally underclock to reduce stress on the chip, and the cuda driver automatically uses a P2 state which reduces the memory clock rate.
How would you or anyone know this? It seems to be that the opposite would be true, if someone is trying to maximize their influence on the blockchain to make as much PEDOcoins as possible, it would be logical that they would ramp up calculations as much as possible.
Cryptocreeps are in it for all of the money they can get. If a card is damaged in the process of their greed as long as it still functions they will be happy to sell that damaged worn out card in the second hand market. These NOBEL free market cryptocreeps are not concerned about the gaming industry or any consequences of their "Currency.
Sora said: Removing advertised functionality is illegal. I am speaking about future cards. What you are thinking of is mining hobbyists just in it for a quick buck, these guys don't have the funds to go out and harvest gpu's online so they get what they can and crank up to max.
Sora said: What you are thinking of is mining hobbyists just in it for a quick buck, these guys don't have the funds to go out and harvest gpu's online so they get what they can and crank up to max. Again, how could you know this? Have you visited each of the big number crunchers? Have you inspected their systems? As blockchain get more and more crowded is is only logical that each miner would crank their system to the max to maximize their return!
Nobody but that does not live in fantasy-land believes that PEDOcoin technology will last in the long haul. Nobody uses it. It is only a matter of time before the governments step in. Currencies are created by governments. At best, its closest neighbor is PayPal.
A way of transferring real currencies between individuals. Sora said: I like cryptocurrencies because of all of the pretty and illicit images I can buy on the darkweb. I can make up quotes just like you did. Why not use logic instead of pettiness to defend your arguments. I'll repeat myself. Sora said: I find it interesting that everyone who see's the flaws in ignorant posts are suddenly a greedy cryptominer.
Fortunately for me not once have defeated my logic. Apparently all you have is sneering and name calling. The only ones I have mentioned as suspected greedy cryptocreeps are those who dismiss everything I say as ignorant, treat me with contempt, cherry pick arguments, spout lies, and defend the status quo.
Just like you. You have no logic to address. Every point you have attempted to make is not grounded in reality.

You can't "detect crypto mining activities" as they are just 1's and 0's fed via an API which is an advertised capability of the card.
