Hi all,

I need to add some Bitcoin functionality to OT (to enable low-trust servers, since the current crop of servers seems to get hacked every 2 months...)

I do NOT want the full Bitcoin functionality, I just need to be able to do a few basic things, and it would be nice to just link Bitcoin into OT as a library.

Requirements:

1) Should be able to create my own Bitcoin addresses (for receiving payments.)
2) Should be able to check the balance at a specific address.
3) Should be able to send a Bitcoin payment from one of my addresses (to a target address.)

CAN ONE OF YOU PLEASE PROVIDE ME SUCH A LIBRARY? Preferably I just link the library and make a few function calls -- and that's it!

Presumably the code would be a subset of the existing Bitcoin client.

-----------------------------------

One more thing:  I do NOT need this through the RPC JSON interface, which I already have working. Rather, I need this to be C code that I can link directly to my existing C code, without having to also separately run the Bitcoin client.

Please show me some sample code, or point me in the right direction.

As a reward for this, I will provide open-source low-trust servers, which you can use without having to worry about hackers and thieves (like happened recently at MtGox and MyBitcoin.)

Check out genjix's libbitcoin: https://gitorious.org/libbitcoin

It's not complete yet, but I believe he's making quick progress.  It may actually have everything you need now.

I've been watching open transactions with interest -- very interesting work and very complementary to Bitcoin.   Thank you.

What genjix is doing is very impressive so far...this could be "the" library.
