NOTICE: End of work notice

Due to lack of time, support, and resources, the Coinpunk project is currently not under active development. See the announcement.

Instead of using this code, I suggest building a new wallet based on our work improving the excellent new version of BitcoinJS. Coinpunk was a product of it's time, and since then many improvements to the Bitcoin code ecosystem have happened.

Coinpunk

Run your own Bitcoin wallet service.

Coinpunk is a web application that allows anyone to run their own self-hosted Bitcoin wallet service that is accessible from your web browser anywhere in the world. It's free, open source, and you can install it on your server right now.

Who uses Coinpunk

Coinpunk is aimed at developers, power users, and sysadmins interested in running their own web-based Bitcoin wallet.

Coinpunk is also used to power coinpunk.com, the first fully open source web-based wallet service.

Highlights

The latest version is a major rewrite that uses hybrid-wallets: encryption is done in the browser via a client-side application, which can be run separately from the server. This makes it much harder for hackers to steal Bitcoins by breaking into servers.

Coinpunk is in beta. It is set to testnet by default, and it is recommended that only developers and testers only use it at this time (especially in production).

  • Fast, lightweight, efficient
  • Responsive design - works well on mobile devices
  • Easily create new accounts
  • Send and receive bitcoins
  • Detailed reports on transactions
  • Ability to create and name new receive addresses ("Website Donations", "Bake Sale", etc)
  • Built with Node.js and HTML5
  • Standards compliant, easy to upgrade - Uses bitcoind via the JSON RPC

Get Started

See the Install Guide, or the OSX Install Guide.

Coinpunk is for Advanced Users

If you've never worked on your own server before, and don't know how to do things like backup your database, I strongly recommend using a desktop client or hosted wallet provider like coinpunk.com instead. Coinpunk tries to be simple as possible, but like Gitlab, it does require a lot of knowledge to be run properly.
