bitsim is the controller for the your bitcoin simulation environment. bitsim consists of:

  1. Bitcoin simulation node Docker image
  2. Node module for interacting with the simulation container


NOTE: Bitsim node is a modified version of a "regtest mode" which supports mainnet address format and mainnet magic bytes. This allows more seamless plug and play testing environment for applications.
