Tallycoin Connect is a light-weight piece of software that runs in the background on your node. When a visitor to tallycoin.app initiates a donation, our server sends a message to your node (via secure websocket connection) asking for a bitcoin address and a lightning invoice. If all goes well, our server passes those details on to the visitor (via secure TLS connection). The visitor’s browser then renders the QR code and displays the payment information. Our server will periodically ask your node whether payment was made in order to show the visitor that their donation was received.
