Rust Bitcoin Library

This is a library for which supports the Bitcoin network protocol and associated primitives. It is designed for Rust programs built to work with the Bitcoin network.

It is also written entirely in Rust to illustrate the benefits of strong type safety, including ownership and lifetime, for financial and/or cryptographic software.

File defines types for hashes used throughout the library. These types are needed in order to avoid mixing data of the same hash format (like SHA256d) but of different meaning (transaction id, block hash etc).
