My name is Chris Troutner and I am an active developer in the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) cryptocurency space. I spent two years developing the REST API for interacting with the BCH blockchain, and the BITBOX JavaScript library for creating BCH blockchain-based apps.

In March 2020, I left and founded the Permissionless Software Foundation. The PSF is attempting to become the first decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) on the Bitcoin Cash network. PSF is a community of JavaScript developers exploring the intersection of open source, Bitcoin Cash and tokens, and the grey market. We build tools around cryptocurrency, tokens, privacy, and group communication. is the flagship product for the PSF. It's a cloud-based Blockchain-as-a-service subscription service. The organization maintains the bch-api REST API, and provides paid subscription access to the cloud infrastructure that powers it. It also maintains the bch-js JavaScript library. These tools can be used to build blockchain apps like is based on the open source bch-wallet-starter Gatsby Starter. We encourage businesses that want to build BCH Blockchain apps to build off of our 100% open source, MIT-licensed web wallet and plugins.

I'm always available to help developers explore the Bitcoin Cash space. You can find me on Twitter,, and you can reach me on Telegram.
