BitcoinJS SDK

In order to broadcast a transaction on Bitcoin, first install the BitcoinJS SDK. You can find the full documentation here: https://github.com/bitcoinjs/bitcoinjs-lib

Here a code sample to encode a transaction to pass to Transaction Broadcast via the Dfns TypeScript SDK:

import { networks, payments, Psbt } from 'bitcoinjs-lib'
import axios from 'axios'

const walletId = 'wa-6lbfv-9esgj-88s80c0qsih0a393'
const wallet = await dfnsClient.wallets.getWallet({ walletId })
const publicKey = Buffer.from(wallet.signingKey.publicKey, 'hex')

const network = networks.testnet
const { address } = payments.p2wpkh({
  pubkey: publicKey,
  network,
})

const txid = '87872516c6e93f136fc6c493c7172596b11c695e27889de7532abffcac2a4b5e'
const n = 1
const utxo = (
  await axios.post(BITCOIN_NODE_URL, {
    jsonrpc: "2.0",
    id: "gettxout",
    method: "gettxout",
    params: [txid, n, false],
  })
).data.result

const balance = utxo.balance * 100000000
const amount = 1;
const fee = 150;

const psbt = new Psbt({ network })
psbt.addInput({
  hash: txid,
  index: n,
  witnessUtxo: {
    script: Buffer.from(utxo.scriptPubKey.hex, 'hex'),
    value: balance,
  },
})

psbt.addOutput({
  address: 'tb1q5s9xtdr07dk98ud0hr34ufdycz70exte2kehm2',
  value: amount,
});

psbt.addOutput({
  address,
  value: balance - amount - fee,
})

const res = await dfnsClient.wallets.broadcastTransaction({
  walletId,
  body: { kind: 'Psbt', psbt: `0x${psbt.toHex()}` },
})
