# Perl6 Bitcoin Client

This is a client for accessing the Bitcoin [REST API](https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/blob/master/doc/REST-interface.md)

A Bitcoin Full Node with activated REST-API is needed.

To activate the API set the flag *rest* to **1** in
[bitcoin.conf](https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Running_Bitcoin) and open the port **8332**.

For more info on how to setup a Bitcoin Full Node visit [this page](http://blog.brakmic.com/running-a-full-bitcoin-node-on-raspberry-pi-3/).
