  • You can use the exact same method used to generate Bitcoin addresses. There is one parameter to change, as far as I know, and that is the part of the "path" that identifies the type of cryptocurrency the address is for. – Dave Scotese May 25 '18 at 17:47

You can use the following library to generate bitcoin address using Swfit on IOS

Please note that the legacy bitcoin cash and bitcoin address is the same the only difference is the network.

if you're looking for cashAddr (qq address) format, take a look on these open source libraries:

https://github.com/bitcoincashjs/cashaddrjs (javascript) https://cashaddr.bitcoincash.org/ https://github.com/schancel/cashaddr-converter

Original cashAddr algorithm (C++)

https://github.com/Bitcoin-ABC/bitcoin-abc/blob/master/src/cashaddr.cpp

it's pretty easy to read and understand, you can translate it to any language.
