With the steadily rising popularity of Bitcoin as a digital currency platform, the world has also seen a comparable rise in value and adoption worldwide.
Bitcoin has set a standard when it comes to finding that perfect balance between usage, features and compatibility that so many digital currency platforms try to achieve, and this is one important reason why so many enthusiasts across the globe has become immensely interested in Bitcoin development possibilities.
Many developers and companies have also attempted to create that perfect Bitcoin development platform.
Bitprim is an initiative that aims to create that perfect Bitcoin development platform, and eventually, to bring Bitcoin adoption to the mainstream by allowing developers and companies to use this platform to create their own Bitcoin solutions.
The scope for such a platform is immense, and with the inclusion of the right features into the platform, Bitprim aims to strike a balance between power, usability and support, enabling developers to leverage this platform to create Bitcoin solutions for multiple use case scenarios.
The Bitprim Platform
The Bitprim platform developers have taken into account the different features and characteristics that other popular platforms have implemented to good effect, and have tried to amass all these features and characteristics into one stable, robust and dynamic platform.
This way, they have tried to capture the essence of all the features and functionalities that developers are likely to value in an ideal Bitcoin development platform.
Any Bitcoin solution that gets developed from the ground up needs certain core components. There needs to be integrated support for the Bitcoin Core platform, as well as support for the decentralized full node library.
Other areas include support for mining operations, high-performance blockchain management, peer-to-peer support and database integration. Bitprim boasts of all these features, and much more.
When it comes to developers trying to develop their own Bitcoin solution, support for different interfaces is one key feature for any development platform to have.
Bitprim solves this problem by including multiple interface choices, so that developers can choose the interface option that they are most comfortable with, and have previous experience working with.
The base layer of the platform is the C++ interface, which is an improved, enhanced version of the regular Satoshi implementation. By implementing modular features into this interface, a lot of versatility has been added to the platform.
Building on this theme, Bitprim also provides developers with separate Python and Go interfaces. Both are built on the C platform, and extend the usability and functionality of the platform in a big way, owing to the popularity of these programming languages with developers around the world.
A large part of Bitcoin solutions that are being developed from scratch focus on Bitcoin mining scenarios, and this is where Bitprim shines, providing a plethora of features and options for those looking to integrate mining functionality while developing their solutions.
Complete RPC support is currently in full development, which means that solutions developed using the Bitprim platform can be fully compatible with other software solutions which make use of other forms of Bitcoin implementation. This can open up many possibilities regarding Bitcoin mining.
Versatile Database Solution
Bitcoin platforms usually work in their own integrated hash table-based database system. Bitprim has done something unique in their platform, and replaced this the more popular, more feature-rich SQL platform.
The platform uses a rudimentary SQLite implementation which is scheduled to be developed further. This can mean increased adoption, and the ability to run the platform on lower spec computers easily.
Getting Started With Bitprim
Getting started with the Bitprim project involves getting hold of the source code, and taking a look at the included documentation to start learning the system. Developers can have easy access to the source code, which has been hosted at GitHub.
With the potential to become a useful development platform for many different scenarios which involve using the Bitcoin platform, Bitprim is really a refreshing change which can help more developers connect with this exciting platform and build something that stands the test of time.
