We build payment solutions based on bitcoin (BTC) and the Lightning Network.


What it is

  • A full bitcoin (core) node
  • A lightning node
  • A BTC payment processor (BTCPay Server)
  • A black box (literaly)
  • Support community and updates
  • Upgradable (easy to (dis)assemble and swap parts in the future)
  • Expandable: more and more software packages will be available
  • Contributing a percentage of the profits back to the BTCPay Server project

What it is not

  • It’s not a Raspberry Pi
  • It’s not calling home: any update/installation of additional software components requires an active action from the user on the admin interface
  • It’s not making choices for you (you’re free to run whatever you want on the hardware in addition or instead of the privded software)
  • It’s not black box (figuratively)
  • It’s not pre-synced (we believe it’s a break in the chain of trust)


  • A free Ethernet port on your router/switch (wifi dongle NOT included)
  • A free electrical socket
  • Configure a port forward on your router – we can assist you in doing this and with your help we will build a knownledge base to help other users

21 numbered “first batch” units will be available for pre-order on Oct. 31st 2018 for a shipping expected between the last week of November and the first week of December.
