Mobius DApp Store C# .NET SDK

The Mobius DApp Store .Net SDK makes it easy to integrate Mobius DApp Store MOBI payments into .NET Standard and .NET Core applications.


Install the nuget package into an existing .NET project.

$ dotnet add package mobius-client-dotnet

Production Server Setup

Your production server must use HTTPS and set the below header on the /auth endpoint:

Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *



When a user opens an app through the DApp Store it tells the app what Mobius account it should use for payment.

The application needs to ensure that the user actually owns the secret key to the Mobius account and that this isn't a replay attack from a user who captured a previous request and is replaying it.

This authentication is accomplished through the following process:

  • When the user opens an app in the DApp Store it requests a challenge from the application.
  • The challenge is a payment transaction of 1 XLM from and to the application account. It is never sent to the network - it is just used for authentication.
  • The application generates the challenge transaction on request, signs it with its own private key, and sends it to user.
  • The user receives the challenge transaction and verifies it is signed by the application's secret key by checking it against the application's published public key (that it receives through the DApp Store). Then the user signs the transaction with its own private key and sends it back to application along with its public key.
  • Application checks that challenge transaction is now signed by itself and the public key that was passed in. Time bounds are also checked to make sure this isn't a replay attack. If everything passes the server replies with a token the application can pass in to "login" with the specified public key and use it for payment (it would have previously given the app access to the public key by adding the app's public key as a signer).

Note: the challenge transaction also has time bounds to restrict the time window when it can be used.

Sample Server Implementation

Using .NET Core

namespace DotNetCore.API.Controllers
    public class AuthController : ControllerBase
        private IConfiguration Configuration;
        private string APP_KEY {get; set;}
        private string APP_DOMAIN {get; set;}

        public AuthController(IConfiguration configuration)
            this.Configuration = configuration;
            this.APP_KEY = Configuration.GetValue("APP_KEY", "string");
            this.APP_DOMAIN = Configuration.GetValue("APP_DOMAIN", "string");

        public ActionResult<string> Get()
            return new Mobius.Library.Auth.Challenge().Call(this.APP_KEY);

        public ActionResult<string> Post(
            [FromForm] TokenRequest request = null,
            [FromQuery] string xdr = null,
            [FromQuery] string public_key = null
            if (request.Xdr == null && xdr == null)
                return BadRequest("xdr cannot be null");

            if (request.PublicKey == null && public_key == null)
                return BadRequest("public_key cannot be null");

            xdr = xdr != null ? xdr : request.Xdr;
            public_key = public_key != null ? public_key : request.PublicKey;

                var token = new Auth.Token(this.APP_KEY, xdr, public_key);

                var key = new SymmetricSecurityKey(Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(this.APP_KEY));
                var creds = new SigningCredentials(key, SecurityAlgorithms.HmacSha256);

                Claim[] claims = new[]
                    new Claim(ClaimTypes.NameIdentifier, public_key),
                    new Claim("public_key", public_key ),
                    new Claim(JwtRegisteredClaimNames.Jti, token.Hash())

                var timebounds = token.TimeBounds();

                JwtSecurityToken payload = new JwtSecurityToken(
                    issuer: this.APP_DOMAIN,
                    audience: this.APP_DOMAIN,
                    claims: claims,
                    expires: DateTimeOffset.FromUnixTimeSeconds(timebounds.MaxTime).UtcDateTime,
                    signingCredentials: creds);

                string signedToken = new JwtSecurityTokenHandler().WriteToken(payload);

                return Ok(signedToken);
            catch (Exception ex)
                return StatusCode(401, ex.Message);



After the user completes the authentication process they have a token. They now pass it to the application to "login" which tells the application which Mobius account to withdraw MOBI from (the user public key) when a payment is needed. For a web application the token is generally passed in via a token request parameter. Upon opening the website/loading the application it checks that the token is valid (within time bounds etc) and the account in the token has added the app as a signer so it can withdraw MOBI from it.

Sample Payment Implementation

Using .NET Core

namespace DotNetCore.API.Controllers
    [Authorize(AuthenticationSchemes = JwtBearerDefaults.AuthenticationScheme)]
    public class ApiController : Controller
        private IConfiguration Configuration;
        private string APP_KEY {get; set;}
        public ApiController(IConfiguration configuration)
            this.Configuration = configuration;
            this.APP_KEY = Configuration.GetValue("APP_KEY", "string");

        public async Task<IActionResult> Charge([FromForm] PaymentRequest request)
            if (request.Amount <= 0) return BadRequest("Invalid Amount");

                string userPublicKey = User.Claims.FirstOrDefault().Value;
                App dapp = await new AppBuilder().Build(this.APP_KEY, userPublicKey);

                var response = await dapp.Charge(request.Amount, request.TargetAddress);

                return Ok(new {
                    status = "Ok",
                    tx_hash = response.Hash,
                    balance = dapp.UserBalance()
            catch (Exception ex)
                return StatusCode(500, ex.Message);
