Bitcoin is the only focus of the project and its core developers. However, opt in integrations are present for several altcoins:
BGold (BTG) (also known as Bitcoin Gold)
BPlus (XBC) (also known as Bitcoin Plus)
Altcoins are maintained by their respective communities.
For more information, check Altcoin FAQ page.
The steps for having a coin added are:
Create your own docker image (Example for BTC)
Create a docker-compose fragment (Example for BTC)
Add your CryptoDefinition (Example for BTC)
When testing your coin, DO NOT USE
build.sh, since it uses a pre-built docker image.
Instead, install .NET Core 2.1 SDK and run:
BTCPAYGEN_CRYPTO1="EXAMPLE-COIN"BTCPAYGEN_SUBNAME="test"cd docker-compose-generator/srcdotnet run
This will generate your docker-compose in the
Generated folder, which you can then run and test.
Note: BTCPay developers do not implement alternative coins on request. Adding a new coin explicitly depends on the community and developers of those coins. Furthermore, BTCPay developers do not spend excessive time testing nor maintaining the altcoins. If you're submitting a PR for a new coin, make sure that your image works. If the altcoin integration is not actively maintained it will be removed from BTCPay.
