Dash Payment Processor
Please Note: Documentation is a work in progress but actively maintained while the project is undergoing development.
This is a Dash payment processor that can be run within your infrastructure to enable Dash payments as part of your customers' checkout experience. It is not customer facing, but rather a REST API that can be called by your backend server to handle Dash payments similar to how PayPal works. The entire process is made up up three components.
The payment processor (This application)
The payment processor is a Node.js application that runs alongside bitcore-node-dash as a service. The primary responsibilities of the processor is to record payment requests, calculate current Dash valuations from various fiat currencies, manage payment address, and to notify your application when a payment has been made.
Insight-API-Dash (Internal Dependency)
Insight-API-Dash is a blockchain explorer which acts a service to bitcore-node-dash. It is used to query the block chain, primarily to look for payments.
Bitcore-Node-Dash (Internal Dependency)
Bitcore-Node-Dash is a wrapper to the Dash Core Daemon and is used to allow for direct interaction between various services and the Dash Blockchain.
Download / Install / Run
To download and install the payment processor:
npm install -g bitcore-node-dash bitcore-node-dash create mynode -d ~/.bitcore/data cd mynode bitcore-node-dash install insight-api-dash bitcore-node-dash install dash-payment-processor
After you have configured a database (see below), you can run the server by issuing the command:
Test using Mocha
npm install -g mocha npm test
The payment processor stores persistent data in a MySQL database. The schema is located in the
You'll need to create a database configuration file from a template. From the root of the project run:
cd config/ ; cp DBConfig-template.js DBConfig.js ; cd -
DBConfig.js and supply your database credentials.
Application-level configuration, such as logging and external API endpoints is all maintained in
This application interacts with a local instance of Insight-API-Dash.
You are responsible for seeding the application with your Master Address Seed. This can be in BIP32 format, or Electrum format. Place the seed value in AppConfig.js.
Developer documentation and endpoint specifications for clients can be found in the wiki.
