High-Level Features

This library supports

  • Output descriptors including embedded Miniscripts
  • Parsing and serializing descriptors to a human-readable string format
  • Compilation of abstract spending policies to Miniscript (enabled by the compiler flag)
  • Semantic analysis of Miniscripts and spending policies, with user-defined public key types
  • Encoding and decoding Miniscript as Bitcoin Script, given key types that are convertible to bitcoin::PublicKey
  • Determining satisfiability, and optimal witnesses, for a given descriptor; completing an unsigned elements::TxIn with appropriate data
  • Determining the specific keys, hash preimages and timelocks used to spend coins in a given Bitcoin transaction
