A few days ago, BitPay made a new announcement and announced an online application to showcase Bitcore’s possibilities and capabilities, called Bitcore Playground. The Bitcoin learning curve for [future] developers will be lowered with Bitcore Playground, as the application serves as an interactive guide to using the Bitcoin[JS] library.
While there are a lot of existing and recently announced Bitcoin-related projects out there, it never hurts to spark even more innovation in the digital currency sphere. Making things easier for [aspiring] developers is a great way for getting more people involved with Bitcoin and other currencies. One could even go as far as calling Bitcore Playground an online Swiss army knife for both developers and interested parties alike.
Bitcore Playground offers a ton of features and functionality which are all becoming ever more important in the Bitcoin space. Multisignature addresses, hierarchical deterministic keys and even a tutorial on generating a Bitcoin address from a private or public key are just some of the available examples offered by Bitcore Playground.
As you would come to expect from such a vast “sandbox” for development, every feature, method and aspect comes with detailed instructions and explanations. Especially the documentation regarding handling Bitcoin payments and the five most common Bitcoin scripts is a definite must read for not just developers, but also Bitcoin enthusiasts.
