We are a team of experienced devs, also with experience and knowledge of Bitcoin, but with zero experience so far in Bitcoin/blockchain specific development.

We would like to host a Bitcoin wallet on our website and are exploring the development lift required from open source options. There will be frequent deposits/withdrawals, internal transactions and naturally security is of the highest priority.

Any advice on avenues to explore (and pitfalls to watch out for) as we assess options would be very helpful.


  • I've voted to keep this question open, because it is asking about an "actual problem with using Bitcoin", namely, how to accept payments on a website. I see some votes to close this question as a request for a service review or recommendation, but I digress: there is a difference between asking "How do I do XYZ?" and "What is the best XYZ service?".

1 Answer 1


With all due respect, the first answer that you received to this question is wholly inaccurate.

'Bitcoin Core' is a client (not a library or a wallet).

You're looking for something like 'BTCPayServer', which is a completely autonomous, self-hosted wallet solution that requires a server to spin and allows you to control every aspect of your interaction with the source code on a granular level with as much fine tuning as you desire.

Here's the site: https://btcpayserver.org/

There's a live demo for you to play with along with a wealth of documentation.

  • There is no other answer. I guess you are alluding to the comment by @Prayank.

  • Yes, apologies. Stackexchange won't let me add a comment to other comments until I hit the 50 point mark and this is still considered to be a "new" account.
