Full Description

A very simplistic Stripe card payment handler for auto-magically exchanging GBP/BTC for ScottCoins. ScottCoins are Scott Logic's permissioned blockchain currency (more accurately/legally tokens), predominantly used for buying Monster Munch from the tuck shop.

To run your own copy, you'll need to create a "hot" wallet (just a wallet with funds in it you'd be happy to potentially lose) and have a Stripe account.

Now create a configuration file -

{
  "mnemonic": "some random collection of words",
  "secretKey": "sk_test_abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz",
  "publishableKey": "pk_test_abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz",
  "bws": "https://bws.bitpay.com/bws/api"
}

The mnemonic should match the backup phrase from your hot wallet, obviously keep this secret. The secretKey can be found in your Stripe account settings, again keep it secret. The publishableKey can be found in the same place but as the name suggests is less secret. Finally bws is the URL the bitcore-wallet-client should connect to (we point it at our ScottCoin insance), not necessarily secret.

Now run up the docker image with the configuration file mounted at /app/config.json and publish the port behind some form of HTTPS offload. N.B. HTTPS is required to ensure the secret doesn't become un-secret which would allow someone to plunder your hot wallet funds.
