Been experimenting with btcpayserver, pleased to see that it's actually not too hard to set up a full node with btc and lightning support, and pretty trivial to add things like donation pages, a *lot* of functionality under the hood. I'm also using it exclusively over Tor HS for now, i.e. no domains (which are always a bit annoying).

You can even donate using payjoin at the link on .. I tested it and it worked first time :)

LN next :)

One nice detail I wasn't aware of until I'd actually tried it out: when you pay with payjoin, btcpayserver actually creates a record of the non-coinjoin transaction in the invoice details, and then crosses it out and replaces it with the payjoin when that has been created and broadcast successfully.

I think it's a nice self-hosted donations option with good privacy and good usability; I added the link to this profile and my github profile too. v3 onions are kinda long though ...

Seems like Lightning donations are now working on this too. If you want to throw me a few sats, try:


I can send them back if you like (assuming I figure out how :) ).
