There are many other ways to get involved with the project. Check our contribution guidelines. To get the big-picture of the project development, visit our evolving roadmap. We organize different types of community calls several times a month. Subscribe to our calendar and feel free to join our calls to discuss development, design, documentation and more.

🧑‍💻 Developing

To begin developing locally, visit our local development guide. There are also several video-tutorials:

How to build

While the documentation advises using docker-compose, you may want to build BTCPay Server yourself.

First, install .NET Core SDK v3.1 as specified by the Microsoft website.

On Powershell:


On linux:


How to run

Use the run scripts to run BTCPay Server, this example shows how to print the available command-line arguments of BTCPay Server.

On Powershell:

.\run.ps1 --help

On linux:

./run.sh --help

How to debug

If you want to debug, use Visual Studio Code or Visual Studio 2019.

You need to run the development time docker-compose as described in the test guide.

You can then run the debugger by using the Launch Profile Docker-Regtest on either Visual Studio Code or Visual Studio 2017.

If you need to debug ledger wallet interaction, install the development time certificate with:

# Install development time certificate in the trust store
dotnet dev-certs https --trust

Then use the Docker-Regtest-https debug profile.

Other dependencies

For more information, see the documentation: How to deploy a BTCPay Server instance.


BTCPay Server has two APIs:

The Greenfield API is our brand-new API which is still in development. Once complete, it will allow you to run BTCPay Server headlessly. The Legacy API, is fully compatible with BitPay's API. It has limited features, but allows instant migration from BitPay.
