Dashcore P2P

NPM Package Build Status

dashcore-p2p adds Dash protocol support for Dashcore.

See the main dashcore-lib repo for more information.

Getting Started

npm install @dashevo/dashcore-p2p

In order to connect to the Dash network, you'll need to know the IP address of at least one node of the network, or use Pool to discover peers using a DNS seed.

var Peer = require('@dashevo/dashcore-p2p').Peer;

var peer = new Peer({host: ''});

peer.on('ready', function() {
  // peer info
  console.log(peer.version, peer.subversion, peer.bestHeight);
peer.on('disconnect', function() {
  console.log('connection closed');

Then, you can get information from other peers by using:

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

Take a look at the bitcore guide on the usage of the Peer class.
