BTCPay Server Adds CoinJoin Plugin

Features of the Plugin
The new plugin includes several features that enable merchants to take full advantage of this privacy-enhancing tool for Bitcoin transactions. It comes with a payment batching in CoinJoin feature which allows users to pay addresses directly within a single transaction, saving block space and enhancing privacy compared to making payments in two steps. Furthermore, it also offers a coin selection interface that lets merchants spend coins based on their gained anonymity scores.
CoinJoins with Coordinator or Own Coordinator
Merchants can choose to use a coordinator provided by zkSNACKs when performing a CoinJoin transaction, or they can spin up their own coordinators using the Wasabi Wallet’s WabiSabi CoinJoint protocol for free. If users run their own coordinator, there is an optional revenue sharing option available that donates part of the proceeds received from transactions to HRF and OpenSats foundations.
Dashboard To Assess Level Of Privacy
The dashboard included in the BTCPay Server Plugin gives users insight into the level of privacy of their wallets as well as details on current and past CoinJoint transactions they have participated in. This allows them to gain more control over coin selection both in and out of these transactions.
