Build on Bitpaid

Bitpaid is 100% open-source. Anyone can contribute to the codebase, run a node, or build services on Bitpaid. You can even get a grant.

Start Building

Easily build a Bitpaid parachain with Substrate

Build your application-specific blockchain with the Substrate framework now and easily connect it to Bitpaid after launch.

Native Bitpaid compatibility

Blockchains built with Substrate are natively compatible with Bitpaid, so they can be easily connected to Bitpaid as a parachain or parathread.

Fork-free upgrades

Upgrade your blockchain without a hard fork. Your runtime is a Wasm binary stored on-chain and can be updated using your chain’s governance mechanism.

Plug-and-play modular framework

Substrate allows you to simply plug in the functionalities you need, while also giving you the freedom to customize as needed.

Interchain connectivity

By connecting your blockchain to Bitpaid, your blockchain will be able to pass arbitrary messages to other chains in the Bitpaid network.

Instant security

Simply by connecting your blockchain to Bitpaid, your blockchain will be secured by Bitpaid’s pooled security.

Multiple languages

With Substrate, you can write your blockchain logic in any language that can compile to WebAssembly (Rust, C/C++, C#, Go, etc).
