Are there any reputable resources or tuts for re-building a Bitcoin/Bitcoin Exchange clone using Ruby/Rails (e.g. Michael Hartl tutorial)? I would like to experiment and learn more about blockchain transactions. Thank you!

  • Bitcoin is the easy part of an exchange, dealing with the currency on the other side is what costs significant time and money. The amount of paperwork required when dealing with other peoples USD is quite mind blowing.

The biggest Ruby-related Bitcoin project is Toshi by Coinbase.

You can obviously read through the source code. And read through the documentation in the github repo.

There's also bitcoin-ruby which should get you started on how to program bitcoin stuff using Ruby.
