About BTCPay Server

Short excerpt from their project page:

BTCPay Server is an Open Source payment processor, written in C#, that conforms to the invoice API of Bitpay. This allows easy migration of your code base to your own, self-hosted payment processor.

This solution is for you if:

  • You are currently using Bitpay as a payment processor but are worried about their commitment to Bitcoin in the future
  • You want to be in control of your own funds Bitpay compliance team decided to reject your application
  • You want lower fees (we support Segwit)

To get a full overview check out their great documentation.

Supported cryptocurrencies

BTCPay supports a vast variety of cryptocurrencies:

  • BTC (Bitcoin)
  • LTC (Litecoin)
  • 2nd layer Lightning Network for instant micro-transactions (BTC + LTC)
  • some altcoins using full node integration
  • or most other major altcoins using Changelly for conversion

Compatible with BitPay API

BTCPay was created to be a alternative to 3rd party payment provider BitPay. Therefore BTCPay is invoice API compatible and you can use this payment plugin also with the official BitPay API and sites if you want. But the power of BTCPay is that you can become your own payment provider.
