Dash Payment Service

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 service (This application)

The payment service is a Node.js application that runs alongside bitcore-node-dash. The primary responsibilities of the service 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 this payment service:

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-service

After you have configured a database (see below), you can run the server by issuing the command:

bitcore-node-dash start


Test using Mocha

npm install -g mocha

npm test


The service stores persistent data in a MySQL database. The schema is located in the resources/ folder.


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 -

Then, open DBConfig.js and supply your database credentials.


Application-level configuration, such as logging and external API endpoints is all maintained in config/AppConfig.js


This application interacts with a local instance of Insight-API-Dash.

Wallet Seed

You are respnsible 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.

Technical Docs

Developer documentation and endpoint specifications for clients can be found in the wiki.
