I am trying to create HD wallet for bitcoin.

I have developed an Ethereum wallet, but I am having a hard time making a Bitcoin wallet.

In my case, I am developing a server using Golang and Typescript.

Is there a best practice to make a bitcoin wallet using Typescript or Golang?

I'd appreciate it if you could let me know.

Paul Miller has created a number of modern typescript libraries to help with this:

I've also created a small gist to help you get started:

https://gist.github.com/aulneau/2f5aad7030e046fb6b557a3871231d72

High level overview:

  • we generate a mnemonic from scure-bip39
  • convert the mnemonic to a master seed (via same lib)
  • use scure-bip32 to create the hd node
  • define our paths (in this case, bip84)
  • generate nodes with the receive and change paths
  • derive children nodes
  • get the witness pubkey hash address for each node

Hope this helps!! let me know if you have any questions

  • Hi aulneau, while these links seem useful, this answer could get into the main question of the asker a bit more.
