Does the Project have a Skype and IRC chat channel?


There are two experimental channels:

  1. General - for general Counterparty chat:

  2. Technical - for developers:

Because one of the Skype channels has reached the maximum number of users, Gitter is recommended for new users.


Skype is our primary form of communication. We operate a general chat channel, and a developer-specific chat channel. Gitter and Skype channels are generally more active than IRC. To get added to either of the Skype channels, add “xnovaxcp” or “prezzy_dent” to your Skype and ask to be invited.


For IRC, join #xcp on Freenode (
To connect, download and start up your IRC client (such as mirc on Windows or Xchat on Windows/Linux).
