BTCPay Server To Install Within Minutes Now, Thanks To Its New Interface

Nicolas Dorier, the creator of BTCPay Server, an open-source Bitcoin (BTC) payment processor server, announced on Tuesday the availability of a web interface for quick and easy installation of the client, with just a few clicks, which includes the configuration of a complete node of Bitcoin (BTC) and LND, a Lightning Network client.

Nicolas Dorier admits that, until now, installing BTCPay client was sluggish and complicated

Until now, BTCPay Server, which allows a business to receive payments in Bitcoin (BTC), was available on the Microsoft Azure platform, Microsoft’s cloud computing platform.

“Since I started using BTCPay in February 2018, assuming the role of a non-technical person, I found the installation process intimidating. I learn quickly, but the fact that a merchant had to use the terminal and a command line was not good user experience. I spent a good amount of time at Reddit trying to explain to merchants the concepts of privacy and resistance to censorship. The only thing I couldn’t discuss was that BTCPay was harder to install and took longer than other options,” admitted Nicolas Doriel.

The new installation process, Doriel says, only requires downloading the installation Wizard to install BTCPay. Then you need to create an account on LunaNode, which is the platform that hosts the payment processor and copy-paste the Application Programming Interface (API). The speed of BTCPay synchronization depends on the hosting plan chosen by the client. The cheapest plan, of only $8.80 per month, allows the synchronization to complete within four days, tops.

Dorier points out that, along with the installation of the BTCPay, a complete Bitcoin (BTC) node is configured automatically but in a way that is transparent to the user. Also included in the installation of BTCPay is the implementation of Lightning Network, although it is optional.

Lightning Network Makes Bitcoin (BTC) Payments Faster And Cheaper – Here Are 4 Platforms That Support It

iDue to the increase in transactions and the congestion of the Bitcoin (BTC) network, Lightning Network was developed, a technology that allows you to use BTC as a cryptocurrency payment method instantly and at lower fees. Here you can see the best 4 platforms that have integrated this technology – OpenNode, GloBee, BTCPay, and CoinGate.


The Open Node cryptocurrency payments processor allows payments to be made with the Lightning network. This platform, launched last May, announced that its system “is designed for companies of all sizes and shapes.”

All out tools and features are built around the idea that using Bitcoin (BTC) should be easy and empowering for both merchants and customers alike.

Open Node Lightning Network platform

This platform is developed by, a company dedicated to Bitcoin (BTC) technology and ecosystem, based in Los Angeles, USA.

Via its website, points out that its work aims to “close the gap between BTC and the general public through the development of applications that focus on people and their daily lives.”


Another platform that allows payments through Lightning Network is GloBee, a global provider of cryptocurrency payments that enables you to accept or send payments in Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), or Ethereum (ETH), among others.

Also, GloBee payments platform can be integrated into websites through WooCommerce, Magenta, OpenCart, and other services, which extends the reach of Lighting Network and can increase cryptocurrency adoption.


BTCpay, an alternative open source project to BitPay, also enabled the option to make payments with Lightning Network last March, as well as CoinGate, which stated that “this technology will eventually make Bitcoin (BTC) faster, lighter and more efficient.”

Lightning Network is a network that operates outside of Bitcoin (BTC) main blockchain and processes transactions through payment channels created between its nodes. As a result, transactions are made immediately and with minimal fees, opening up the possibility that BTC can be adopted as a payment method on a global scale.
