I want to create a payment service where I want to be able to charge each client according to its invoice. I picked Electrum as my underlying wallet and pybitcontools as my Python interface.
I would like to assign for each invoice a separate address. However, using wallet GUI it requires a person doing so and would like to automate that. Sadly, I am unable to replicate the Electrum addresses and am a bit lost at what is going wrong
My current test code:
import bitcoin as btc electrum_master_public_key = 'xpub67xegn2C1yS...' for i in xrange( 5 ): print btc.pubkey_to_address( btc.bip32_descend( electrum_master_public_key, [0,i] ) )
All my generated addresses start with a 1 whereas Electrum's star with 3. Would appreciate if somebody would help me to link the two.
