is there a wallet/app out there that would do the following, or would it require bespoke script development?

  • Automatically send a btc transaction to a btc address at fixed time intervals eg every second
  • Sending address would always be the same, as would receiving address, ie always from address a to address b
  • Amount would potentially be varied

Thanks for any help.

    At first glance, this sounds like potentially poor practice (address reuse, spamming of the blockchain, etc.). Are you at liberty to describe the underlying goal? – Christopher Gurnee May 10 '15 at 21:50

    This sounds like something you could do with Bitcoin's API and a few lines of Python, but I'm not sure what the point would be. – Nick ODell May 10 '15 at 23:52
  • Thanks both. Was thinking of a skill based game where the person who sends most transactions to address A by block X wins. There would be a min amount threshold, so would not be spam. – JBwell May 11 '15 at 7:19

    Sounds like you are looking for micropayment channels or Strawpay or AmikoPay or Lightning Network. Using the blockchain like you describe doesn't make sense and won't scale to even 1 player playing your game. – Jannes May 11 '15 at 9:12
  • Thanks. Do you mean that it would not be worth it for a player to send multiple low value transactions to the blockchain because of the transaction fees eating up a good percent of the total transaction amount? Or something else? – JBwell May 11 '15 at 9:53
