Prerequisites

Skills

  • You need to be comfortable with object oriented as well as functional programming.

  • A basic grasp of C# is helpful, but we feel the code will be legible to developers familiar with Java and other C-based languages.

  • No mathematical knowledge is required. We will not cover cryptography beyond the bare minimum you need to know to make a secure service.

  • You don’t need to have deep knowledge of Bitcoin.

Tools

Tip: If disk space is an issue, consider running Bitcoin Core in pruning mode. It is practically the same as a full node (including security), except it throws away some of the old history.
