Support for Cardano in BTCpay Server

BTCpay Server is a really cool project, it’s an open source replacement for BitPay. It’s used in many sites, including some popular ones like, and it also integrates with quite a few popular commerce platforms like Wordpress, WooCommerce, Drupal, Magento and Shopify.

The core developers only support bitcoin development, but it’s made to allow third parties to provide support for other coins. Currently it supports a dozen or so including Litecoin, Dash and Monero.

I’d love to see Cardano support out of the box in BTCpay Server and would be happy to support the development of this depending on the estimated size of the job, which could be discussed here by anyone interested in the idea.

Their Alt coin FAQ covers the details of adding support for new coins.

Also it might be worth noting that all the supported alt coins (I think) are bitcoin forks except for Monero, so this may be the best one to look at for an existing integration example. Monero seems not to have needed to include support for NBitcoin and NBxplorer like the other coins have.

@Aranad I second that! I would love to be involved in this as well. At the moment, I don’t have anything to offer other than enthusiasm for this as I just discovered BTCpay Server today and have only begun digging through the documentation and code.

Will post an update once I learn more.

Well, if this ever gets off the ground I can state that standing up a BTCpay Server is pretty simple to do. I had the server up and running in short order. The hosting cost is about $9.32 per month so affordable too.

Go to and click on the ‘Donate BTC’ link to see the BTCpay Server is action.
