newbie question here. I am trying to learn to interact with the Bitcoin blockchain and I want to use the native SCRIPT language.
I already downloaded the entire node and synced on an AWS Linux Ubuntu but I did it using Bitcore.io. I can see it's using Node.js and I can see no option of using the bitcoin CLI. The best tutorials out there are in for Bitcoin's native language.
Do I have to re-download the entire chain from bitcoin.org in order to the native command line?
I want to use all the features, not just a 'light' option like BitcoinJ.
Any suggestion appreciated.
