Developer tools now available on


The BSV enterprise blockchain has seen a huge wave of development over the past two years, with popular applications now powering millions of daily transactions. However, there have been fair criticisms that compared to other blockchains, it is still quite difficult to grow on BSV.

Now, discontinued its first set of over 50 tools. All of them have been checked by BSV developers and are ready to use now. You can browse the tool library here.

What tools are available on

BSV development tools fall into several key categories.

  • API- Tools like Mattercloud, Blockchair, NOWNodes and WhatsonChain allow developers to instantly access on-chain data, perform various analytical queries, use block hosting to store websites and data on the blockchain.
  • Metrics – Coin Dance, BSVData, Bitcoin Blocks Live, and Coin Carbon Cap provide real-time data on the BSV blockchain. Historical prices, trading volumes and other useful data are available through these tools.
  • bitcoin script – Script is the native language of Bitcoin. Script Wiki is a list of opcodes, commands and functions. sCrypt is a high-level smart contract language for BSV.
  • BSV Libraries – In this section you will find a suite of development tools to create applications and games on BSV. For example, Gate2Chain is a development suite that lets you connect apps, websites, games, and other systems to the BSV blockchain. You’ll find apps that let you create in Rust, Java, Elixir, Python, Dart, and other languages.
  • Education – This is where developers can learn more about BSV and its true capabilities. From Bitcoin Wiki to BSV Academy to Dr. Craig Wright and Ryan X. Charles’ video series titled Theory of Bitcointhere is a wealth of information in this section.
  • Reading – These tools allow reading from the blockchain. For example, MetaShard allows easy access to data stored on the blockchain. It also allows users to store data on BSV.
  • Standards and protocols – BSV has an extremely well-developed library of technical standards and legal specifications. In this section, you can learn more about Travel Rule, Merkle Proofs, SPC Channels and much more.
  • Testing tools – Use PewPew to stress test applications, the BSV testnet faucet to provide tokens to testnet users running a stake pool or another node, or the Scaling Test Network (STN) to test large blocks and transaction volumes.
  • Tokens and smart contract – Issue tokens or create applications and smart contracts on protocols such as RUN, STAS, Bitcoin Computer, SensibleSV and Tokenized.
  • Transaction Libraries – Use the Minecraft javascript library to interact with miner APIs, Fileplay to post data or upload files to BSV, or the Merchant API to get policy and fee quotes before submitting transactions. This only scratches the surface of the tools in this section.
  • Wallet SDK – This is where you will connect the apps and tools you have created to popular BSV wallets such as Handcash, Moneybutton, Relaysia and others.

Patrick Prinz, Managing Director of the BSV Blockchain Association, had this to say about the tool suite:

“Usage of the BSV protocol is growing rapidly, and the number of transactions exceeds the total accumulated concurrency. And that while BSV still doesn’t make it particularly easy to start development on the protocol, in all honesty. The SDKs, the libraries and developer tools are stored in a fragmented manner and it is difficult to find the information required to get started.There are also tooling gaps where other blockchain ecosystems have done a better job.

He added, “While it’s important to remember that Bitcoin’s potential was only unleashed in early 2020 with the Genesis Update, we as an organization are committed to delivering newcomer developers and entrepreneurs a welcoming and information-rich onboarding experience. A central location for easy navigation of existing tools and libraries is a start. More services will follow over the coming weeks and months. We encourage everyone in the ecosystem to contribute. The web page will feature a ticketing system to process suggestions for additions and changes. I want to thank all contributors who have already provided feedback and helped with content.

The development of BSV continues at a breakneck pace

Developers should be aware that the race is on to develop on BSV. In fact, there are now millions of daily on-chain transactions driven by popular apps like CryptoFights and Peer Game. The games drive the majority of them, but that only scratches the surface of what BSV is capable of.

Why do so many developers choose BSV? It’s simple; once you get past the childish rhetoric about decentralization and the fall of governments that pervades much of the blockchain industry today. And once you start looking for a serious blockchain that scales endlessly, is capable of executing complex smart contracts, has extremely low fees (think $0.0005 per tx), and does it all today oday there is only one blockchain in town: Bitcoin SV.

BSV is the restored original Bitcoin protocol. The development we are witnessing today is only the beginning of what is to come. It’s time to get excited about building on Bitcoin!
