tibc

A tiny blockchain implementation in Python

Features

  • Simple but complete implementation of a blockchain
  • Implementation of proof of work.

How to use

from tibc import Blockchain

block_one_transactions = {"sender": "Alice", "receiver": "Bob", "amount": "50"}
block_two_transactions = {"sender": "Bob", "receiver": "Cole", "amount": "25"}
block_three_transactions = {"sender": "Alice", "receiver": "Cole", "amount": "35"}
fake_transactions = {"sender": "Bob", "receiver": "Cole, Alice", "amount": "25"}

blockchain = Blockchain()
blockchain.print_blocks()

blockchain.add_block(block_one_transactions)
blockchain.add_block(block_two_transactions)
blockchain.add_block(block_three_transactions)
blockchain.print_blocks()
blockchain.validate_chain() # returns true

blockchain.chain[2].transactions = fake_transactions
blockchain.validate_chain() # returns false, since the contents are changed
