Testing in a Browser

Note: This method should only be used for development purposes. When running DigiByteGo in a normal browser environment, browser extensions and other malicious code might have access to internal data and private keys.

Clone the repo and open the directory:

git clone Foundation/digibytego.git
cd digibytego

Ensure you have Node installed, then install and start DigiByteGo:

npm run apply:digibytego
npm start

Visit localhost:8100 to view the app.

A watch task is also available to rebuild components of the app as changes are made. This task can be run in a separate process – while the server started by npm start is running – to quickly test changes.

npm run watch

Testing on Real Devices

It's recommended that all final testing be done on a real device – both to assess performance and to enable features that are unavailable to the emulator (e.g. a device camera).


Follow the Cordova Android Platform Guide to set up your development environment.

When your developement enviroment is ready, run the start:android npm package script.

npm run apply:digibytego
npm run start:android


Follow the Cordova iOS Platform Guide to set up your development environment.

When your developement enviroment is ready, run the start:ios npm package script.

npm run apply:digibytego
npm run start:ios

Desktop (Linux, macOS, and Windows)

The desktop version of DigiByteGo currently uses NW.js, an app runtime based on Chromium. To get started, first install NW.js on your system from the NW.js website.

When NW.js is installed, run the start:desktop npm package script.

npm run apply:digibytego
npm run start:desktop

Build DigiByteGo App Bundles

Before building the release version for a platform, run the clean-all command to delete any untracked files in your current working directory. (Be sure to stash any uncommited changes you've made.) This guarantees consistency across builds for the current state of this repository.

The final commands build the production version of the app, and bundle it with the release version of the platform being built.


npm run clean-all
npm run apply:digibytego
npm run final:android


npm run clean-all
npm run apply:digibytego
npm run final:ios

Windows Phone

  • Install Visual Studio 2013 (or newer)
  • Run make wp8-prod

Desktop (Linux, macOS, and Windows)

npm run clean-all
npm run apply:digibytego
npm run final:desktop

Google Chrome App

cd chrome-app/

npm run apply:digibytego

On success, the Chrome extension will be located at: browser-extensions/chrome/digibytego-chrome-extension. To install it go to chrome://extensions/ in your browser and ensure you have the 'developer mode' option enabled in the settings. Then click on "Load unpacked chrome extension" and choose the directory mentioned above.


Enable External Services

To enable external services, set the DigiByte Go_EXTERNAL_SERVICES_CONFIG_LOCATION or DigiByte Foundation_EXTERNAL_SERVICES_CONFIG_LOCATION environment variable to the location of your configuration before running the apply task.

DigiByte Go_EXTERNAL_SERVICES_CONFIG_LOCATION="~/.digibytego/externalServices.json" npm run apply:digibytego
# or
DigiByte Foundation_EXTERNAL_SERVICES_CONFIG_LOCATION="~/.DigiByte Foundation/externalServices.json" npm run apply:DigiByte Foundation

About DigiByteGo


DigiByteGo implements a multisig wallet using p2sh addresses. It supports multiple wallets, each with its own configuration, such as 3-of-5 (3 required signatures from 5 participant peers) or 2-of-3. To create a multisig wallet shared between multiple participants, DigiByteGo requires the extended public keys of all the wallet participants. Those public keys are then incorporated into the wallet configuration and combined to generate a payment address where funds can be sent into the wallet. Conversely, each participant manages their own private key and that private key is never transmitted anywhere.

To unlock a payment and spend the wallet's funds, a quorum of participant signatures must be collected and assembled in the transaction. The funds cannot be spent without at least the minimum number of signatures required by the wallet configuration (2-of-3, 3-of-5, 6-of-6, etc.). Once a transaction proposal is created, the proposal is distributed among the wallet participants for each to sign the transaction locally. Finally, when the transaction is signed, the last signing participant will broadcast the transaction to the DigiByte network.

DigiByteGo also implements BIP32 to generate new addresses for peers. The public key that each participant contributes to the wallet is a BIP32 extended public key. As additional public keys are needed for wallet operations (to produce new addresses to receive payments into the wallet, for example) new public keys can be derived from the participants' original extended public keys. Once again, it's important to stress that each participant keeps their own private keys locally - private keys are not shared - and are used to sign transaction proposals to make payments from the shared wallet.

For more information regarding how addresses are generated using this procedure, see: Structure for Deterministic P2SH Multisignature Wallets.

DigiByteGo Backups and Recovery

Since v1.2 DigiByteGo uses BIP39 mnemonics for backing up wallets. The BIP44 standard is used for wallet address derivation. Multisig wallets use P2SH addresses, while non-multisig wallets use P2PKH.

Information about backup and recovery procedures is available at: Foundation/digibytego/blob/master/

Previous versions of DigiByteGo used files as backups. See the following section.

It is possible to recover funds from a DigiByteGo Wallet without using DigiByteGo or the Wallet Service, check the [DigiByteGo Recovery Tool]( Foundation/digibytego-recovery).

Wallet Export Format

DigiByteGo encrypts the backup with the Stanford JS Crypto Library. To extract the private key of your wallet you can use, copy the backup to 'ciphertext' and enter your password. The resulting JSON will have a key named: xPrivKey, that is the extended private key of your wallet. That information is enough to sign any transaction from your wallet, so be careful when handling it!

The backup also contains the key publicKeyRing that holds the extended public keys of the DigiByte Goers. Depending on the key derivationStrategy, addresses are derived using BIP44 or BIP45. Wallets created in DigiByteGo v1.2 and forward always use BIP44, all previous wallets use BIP45. Also note that since DigiByteGo version v1.2, non-multisig wallets use address types Pay-to-PublicKeyHash (P2PKH) while multisig wallets still use Pay-to-ScriptHash (P2SH) (key addressType at the backup):

| DigiByteGo Version | Wallet Type | Derivation Strategy | Address Type | |---|---|---|---|---| | <1.2 | All | BIP45 | P2SH | | >=1.2 | Non-multisig | BIP44 | P2PKH | | >=1.2 | Multisig | BIP44 | P2SH | | >=1.5 | Multisig Hardware wallets | BIP44 (root m/48') | P2SH |

Using a tool like Bitcore PlayGround all wallet addresses can be generated. (TIP: Use the Address section for P2PKH address type wallets and Multisig Address for P2SH address type wallets). For multisig addresses, the required number of signatures (key m on the export) is also needed to recreate the addresses.

BIP45 note: All addresses generated at BWS with BIP45 use the 'shared cosigner index' (2147483647) so DigiByteGo address indexes look like: m/45'/2147483647/0/x for main addresses and m/45'/2147483647/1/y for change addresses.

Since version 1.5, DigiByteGo uses the root m/48' for hardware multisignature wallets. This was coordinated with Ledger and Trezor teams. While the derivation path format is still similar to BIP44, the root was in order to indicate that these wallets are not discoverable by scanning addresses for funds. Address generation for multisignature wallets requires the other DigiByte Goers extended public keys.

Bitcore Wallet Service

DigiByteGo depends on Bitcore Wallet Service (BWS) for blockchain information, networking and DigiByte Goer synchronization. A BWS instance can be setup and operational within minutes or you can use a public instance like https://bws.DigiByte Switching between BWS instances is very simple and can be done with a click from within DigiByteGo. BWS also allows DigiByteGo to interoperate with other wallets like [Bitcore Wallet CLI] (
