For those of you who are new to the crypto space we want to give you a brief explanation of what cryptocurrencies are. We also want to give you a short description of what a QR code is and how it relates to crypto.

For the more experienced crypto user we have a quick start guide below on how to use and integrate our Bitcoin QR code generator API.

What is a cryptocurrency?

Cryptocurrencies are virtual or digital currencies designed to work as a decentralized medium of exchange. Crypto is shot for cryptography and is how it secures and verifies transactions.

The amazing math behind crypto is also how it controls the creation of new crypto coins or tokens like Bitcoin for example.

Bitcoins are like digital gold in many ways and just like gold it requires work to "extract" and cannot be created. It must be "mined" via mathematical means.

Bitcoin is the first decentralized peer-to-peer payment network that is powered by its users with no central authority or middlemen.

What is a QR code?

QR codes (quick response code) are made up of squares that are arranged inside a square grid usually on a white background for better contrast when scanning. These codes can be read by devices such as a camera. The data read in these patterns are present horizontal and vertically.

These matrix type barcodes were created in Japan back in 1994 for the Japanese automotive industry. QR codes are simply machine-readable labels via optical scanning which contains information about just about anything you want.

Smart Phone Scanning QR Code

Most QR codes today contain information about a website URL (uniform resource locator), URI (uniform resource identifier), address, email, etc. There are four types of standardized encodings used when generating QR codes (alphanumeric, byte or binary, numeric and kanji).

How does the Bitcoin QR code generator work?

Converting a cryptocurrency wallet sending or receiving address into a QR code format is an easy way of making or receiving payments. Many cryptocurrency wallets and apps support the scanning of QR codes.

You can create your wallet QR code for scanning by entering a public wallet address into the field above and pressing the generate your QR code button. Once generated you can download it and save it for use on a website or send it to your friends.

Why use a Bitcoin QR code generator?

Today's projects in the cryptocurrency space have a pretty good incentive to facilitate crypto payments for their users. QR codes helps make this process simple and reliable. All you need is a quick scan from your smart phones camera to acquire the sending or receiving address.

Bitcoin wallet addresses as well as other types of cryptocurrencies are made up of a series of letters and numbers that can be longer than 34 characters. This makes it very inconvenient to have to enter manually by hand each time you need to send or request a payment. So by using our app that long address can be turned into a QR code ready to scan quickly and easily.

Where can I get my Bitcoin address?

Depending on the type of cryptocurrency wallet you have the way to obtain an address can be different for each one. If you don't yet have a wallet then a good place to start with getting your first Bitcoin wallet address is at bitcoin.org, they even have an easy step by step wizard to help select a wallet to store your Bitcoin.

How do I make a QR code for my Bitcoin address?

  1. First select the type of cryptocurrency you would like a QR code for. e.g. Bitcoin
  2. Enter your wallet address into the field marked "Wallet address".
  3. Press the generate your QR code button.
  4. Your QR code is now ready for scanning or download.

Does your app have an API (application programming interface) that I can use?

Yes. Using our API, you can create QR code images yourself. We tried to make the API rather straightforward, even for beginners. Here is a list of some of the important features.

Below are some simple (X)HTML examples of how to use the API with your website or app. For more detailed documentation you can visit our API and widgets page.

Try the API out and create an image.

Bitcoin QR Code API Example

Sample API crypto QR code output of URL above.

Now just replace the example Bitcoin address with your own or change the crypto style to represent the type of cryptocurrency you need to generate a QR code for.

Then you can use the API on your website or app by using the API's URL as the image location. Check out the following (X)HTML markup example.

<img src="https://www.bitcoinqrcodemaker.com/api/?style=bitcoin&amp;address=1M5m1DuGw4Wyq1Nf8sfoKRM6uA4oREzpCX" height="300" width="300" alt="Bitcoin QR Code" />

300 pixels by 300 pixels is the default base QR code size but in the above example you can adjust the image size smaller if needed while still maintaining the image resolution. Just be sure to make both the height and width the same dimensions.

Here are the style names with (X)HTML markup examples and corresponding image outputs for all the current crypto QR code generator styles available.
