Satoshi Portal Releases Bitcoin-related Dockerfiles at

After much anticipation, Satoshi Portal has finally open-sourced the first part of its custom bitcoin infrastructure. Francis Pouliot, CEO of Satoshi Portal, just released a public repository of bitcoin-related dockerfiles and configurations.

The files can be found at SatoshiPortal’s GitHub page under SatoshiPortal/dockers. You can also find them online at

Pouliot announced the news in a blog post, saying:

“I’m very excited to have finally open-sourced the first part of Satoshi Portal’s custom Bitcoin infrastructure: our repository of Bitcoin-related dockerfiles and configurations upon which our web applications are built and they are the building blocks of our Cyphernode project (more on that in my next post!) Because we love Docker and Bitcoin so much, we decided dockerize all the Bitcoin projects! This includes Bitcoin Core and Lightning Nodes, as well as various utilities like OpenTimestamps and PyCoin.”

What exactly does it mean when you “dockerize” something? Dockerizing an application – like bitcoin’s code – is the process of converting an application to run within a Docker container. Dockerizing can be straightforward or complicated, depending on the application you’re working with.

Docker is a technology that allows developers to build and deploy scalable web applications. A docker container image is a lightweight, standalone, executable software package including everything you need to run an application.

Satoshi Portal uses the dockerfiles for its Bitcoin Outlet financial services application. The dockerfiles are also used by Bylls. In other words, all bitcoin dockerfile applications currently involve sending and receiving bitcoins commercially via the mainnet.

Thanks to the Satoshi Portal dockerfiles, developers can save time and effort while benefiting from the existing best practices without reinventing the wheel.

“We ourselves tried to create the least now code possible, using the best standards and open-source software, and with security-by-default because we are running bitcoin exchange applications that are an obvious high-value target for attackers,” explains Pouliot of Satoshi Portal.

By creating and releasing Docker containers of useful and popular bitcoin open source projects, Satoshi Portal’s team hopes to make it easier for developers to build applications on top of bitcoin. Satoshi Portal is also encouraging developers to reach out for any special requests about dockerizing applications in the future.

Ultimately, Satoshi Portal’s commitment to dockerizing bitcoin files shows the value of an open source community when it comes to pooling resources and collaboration. You can view the dockerized bitcoin files today at
