I saw 2 rust implementations of Bitcoin.

Parity Bitcoin: https://github.com/paritytech/parity-bitcoin

Rust-Bitcoin: https://github.com/apoelstra/rust-bitcoin

They are not updated for some time now. Are there any other up-to-date and viable rust implementations?

    github.com/rust-bitcoin/rust-bitcoin looks actively developed. Jul 22 at 23:34
  • Parity bitcoin has last commit on Aug 24, 2020. Rust bitcoin has last commit on Oct 12, 2018. I believe there are changes in Bitcoin after that right?

    I'm not sure what you're looking at but (a) rust-bitcoin had a commit (and a release!) yesterday and (b) "changes in Bitcoin" isn't very well-defined; in general, just because some changes are implemented in one piece of software doesn't mean they need to be incorporated everywhere. Almost everything is opt-in, so if you don't make use of a feature, you generally don't care about it (this is true for consensus changes, p2p protocol changes, wallet standards, ...). Jul 23 at 1:36

    Oh, you're looking at apoelstra's fork whose master branch is outdated. That's not the right place to look; use the project repository github.com/rust-bitcoin/rust-bitcoin Jul 23 at 1:39

    This should probably be in github.com/igorbarinov/awesome-bitcoin or en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Software rather than here. Jul 23 at 10:08
