Wallet RPC Mode

Zano command-line wallet application (simplewallet) can be run in RPC server mode. In this mode it can be controlled by RPC calls via HTTP. This makes possible to use it as a back end for an arbitrary service.

In order to start the wallet in RPC server mode, a user needs the following:

  1. Run zanod (the daemon application).

  2. Run simplewallet with the following options:

simplewallet --wallet-file PATH_TO_WALLET_FILE --password PASSWORD --rpc-bind-ip RPC_IP --rpc-bind-port RPC_PORT --daemon-address DEAMON_ADDR:DAEMON_PORT


  • PATH_TO_WALLET_FILE — path to an existing wallet file (should be created beforehand using --generate-new-wallet);
  • PASSWORD — wallet’s password;
  • RPC_IP — IP address to bind RPC server to ( will be used if not specified);
  • RPC_PORT — TCP port for RPC server;
  • DEAMON_ADDR:DAEMON_PORT — daemon address and port (may be omitted if the daemon is running on the same machine with the default settings);

All examples below are given in assumption that the wallet application is running in RPC server mode and listening at
