@ledgerhq/hw-app-btc

Ledger Hardware Wallet BTC JavaScript bindings. Also supports many altcoins.

API

Table of Contents

Btc

Bitcoin API.

Parameters

  • transport Transport
  • scrambleKey (optional, default "BTC")

Examples

import Btc from "@ledgerhq/hw-app-btc";
const btc = new Btc(transport)

getWalletPublicKey

Parameters
  • path string a BIP 32 path

  • opts {verify: boolean?, format: AddressFormat?}?

  • options an object with optional these fields:- verify (boolean) will ask user to confirm the address on the device

    • format ("legacy" | "p2sh" | "bech32" | "cashaddr") to use different bitcoin address formatter.NB The normal usage is to use:- legacy format with 44' paths

    • p2sh format with 49' paths

    • bech32 format with 173' paths

    • cashaddr in case of Bitcoin Cash

Examples
btc.getWalletPublicKey("44'/0'/0'/0/0").then(o => o.bitcoinAddress)
btc.getWalletPublicKey("49'/0'/0'/0/0", { format: "p2sh" }).then(o => o.bitcoinAddress)

Returns Promise<{publicKey: string, bitcoinAddress: string, chainCode: string}>

signMessageNew

You can sign a message according to the Bitcoin Signature format and retrieve v, r, s given the message and the BIP 32 path of the account to sign.

Parameters
Examples
btc.signMessageNew_async("44'/60'/0'/0'/0", Buffer.from("test").toString("hex")).then(function(result) {
var v = result['v'] + 27 + 4;
var signature = Buffer.from(v.toString(16) + result['r'] + result['s'], 'hex').toString('base64');
console.log("Signature : " + signature);
}).catch(function(ex) {console.log(ex);});

Returns Promise<{v: number, r: string, s: string}>

createPaymentTransactionNew

To sign a transaction involving standard (P2PKH) inputs, call createTransaction with the following parameters

Parameters
  • arg CreateTransactionArg
  • inputs is an array of [ transaction, output_index, optional redeem script, optional sequence ] where- transaction is the previously computed transaction object for this UTXO
    • output_index is the output in the transaction used as input for this UTXO (counting from 0)
    • redeem script is the optional redeem script to use when consuming a Segregated Witness input
    • sequence is the sequence number to use for this input (when using RBF), or non present
  • associatedKeysets is an array of BIP 32 paths pointing to the path to the private key used for each UTXO
  • changePath is an optional BIP 32 path pointing to the path to the public key used to compute the change address
  • outputScriptHex is the hexadecimal serialized outputs of the transaction to sign
  • lockTime is the optional lockTime of the transaction to sign, or default (0)
  • sigHashType is the hash type of the transaction to sign, or default (all)
  • segwit is an optional boolean indicating wether to use segwit or not
  • initialTimestamp is an optional timestamp of the function call to use for coins that necessitate timestamps only, (not the one that the tx will include)
  • additionals list of additionnal options- "bech32" for spending native segwit outputs
    • "abc" for bch
    • "gold" for btg
    • "bipxxx" for using BIPxxx
    • "sapling" to indicate a zec transaction is supporting sapling (to be set over block 419200)
  • expiryHeight is an optional Buffer for zec overwinter / sapling Txs
  • useTrustedInputForSegwit trust inputs for segwit transactions
Examples
btc.createTransaction({
inputs: [ [tx1, 1] ],
associatedKeysets: ["0'/0/0"],
outputScriptHex: "01905f0100000000001976a91472a5d75c8d2d0565b656a5232703b167d50d5a2b88ac"
}).then(res => ...);

Returns Promise<string> the signed transaction ready to be broadcast

signP2SHTransaction

To obtain the signature of multisignature (P2SH) inputs, call signP2SHTransaction_async with the folowing parameters

Parameters
  • arg SignP2SHTransactionArg
  • inputs is an array of [ transaction, output_index, redeem script, optional sequence ] where- transaction is the previously computed transaction object for this UTXO
    • output_index is the output in the transaction used as input for this UTXO (counting from 0)
    • redeem script is the mandatory redeem script associated to the current P2SH input
    • sequence is the sequence number to use for this input (when using RBF), or non present
  • associatedKeysets is an array of BIP 32 paths pointing to the path to the private key used for each UTXO
  • outputScriptHex is the hexadecimal serialized outputs of the transaction to sign
  • lockTime is the optional lockTime of the transaction to sign, or default (0)
  • sigHashType is the hash type of the transaction to sign, or default (all)
Examples
btc.signP2SHTransaction({
inputs: [ [tx, 1, "52210289b4a3ad52a919abd2bdd6920d8a6879b1e788c38aa76f0440a6f32a9f1996d02103a3393b1439d1693b063482c04bd40142db97bdf139eedd1b51ffb7070a37eac321030b9a409a1e476b0d5d17b804fcdb81cf30f9b99c6f3ae1178206e08bc500639853ae"] ],
