This page lists IRC channels for discussing Bitcoin-related topics. Please read: Bitcoin IRC Channel Guidelines before joining.

Prior to late May 2021, most of these channels were on the Freenode network. Due to an Ownership dispute over Freenode, several have moved to Libera.chat, with a few others planning to move by early June. If you join a channel at the Freenode address listed below and don't find any activity within a reasonable amount of time, try the same channel on Libera or ask for help in #bitcoin on Libera.
