Platform Architecture

Counterparty Platform Architecture

In the figure below you can see how all Counterparty platform components interact with each other.


aspire-server is the name for the combination of aspire-lib and aspire-cli. It serves as the reference client for Aspire , and implements support for the core Aspire protocol via a provided REST API and command line interface.


aspireblock provides additional services (required by counterwallet and potentially other services) beyond those offered in the API provided by aspire-server. It features a full-fledged JSON RPC-based API, and has an extensible architecture to support custom plugins.


Aspirewallet is a web wallet for gAsp(GASP) and Aspire(ASP). It is being actively developed and currently implements most Aspire features, such as:

  • Fully functional wallet for GASP, ASP, and user-created tokens
  • Peer-to-peer asset trading with algorithmic order matching (ASP, other assets)
  • Custom asset creation
  • Betting
  • Broadcasting data on the gAsp Blockchain
  • Multisig
