Installation

Note: Zecwallet Fullnode will download the entire blockchain (about 26GB), and requires some familiarity with the command line. If you don't want to download the blockchain but prefer a Lite wallet, please check out Zecwallet Lite.

Head over to the releases page and grab the latest installers or binary. https://www.zecwallet.co

Linux

If you are on Debian/Ubuntu, please download the '.AppImage' package and just run it.

./Zecwallet.Fullnode-1.7.5.AppImage

If you prefer to install a

.deb
package, that is also available.
sudo apt install -f ./zecwallet_1.7.5_amd64.deb

Windows

Download and run the

.msi
installer and follow the prompts. Alternately, you can download the release binary, unzip it and double click on
zecwallet.exe
to start.

macOS

Double-click on the

.dmg
file to open it, and drag
Zecwallet Fullnode
on to the Applications link to install.

zcashd

ZecWallet needs a Zcash node running zcashd. If you already have a zcashd node running, ZecWallet will connect to it.

If you don't have one, ZecWallet will start its embedded zcashd node.

Additionally, if this is the first time you're running ZecWallet or a zcashd daemon, ZecWallet will download the Zcash params (~777 MB) and configure

zcash.conf
for you.

Compiling from source

ZecWallet is written in Electron/Javascript and can be build from source. Note that if you are compiling from source, you won't get the embedded zcashd by default. You can either run an external zcashd, or compile zcashd as well.
