Download Linux (Ubuntu 16.04+) CLI Wallet
Right click the file and select Properties
Copy the file name
Open a terminal in this directory & validate the authenticity of the file by running a checksum (XXX represents your version):
(Results should match release notes from Download page)
If checksums match, decompress & extract the .tar.bz2 file:
tar -xvjf zano-linux-x64-release-devtools-v18.104.22.168[336fac2].tar.bz2
- Delete your original .tar.bz2 file
- Move the Zano folder to a location of your choice
- Within the Zano directory, open a terminal and run the daemon to start the node and download the blockchain:
Wait for the blockchain to download and sync. This may take quite a few hours, depending on your download speed. And leave the daemon running! We’ll need that to create our new wallet.
Once sync is complete, open another terminal in the Zano directory with the simplewalletbinary—that's our CLI wallet executable. Give command:
Replace “name” with your new wallet’s name, e.g.,:
When asked, enter a password for your wallet. You should use a password generator, found in password managers such as KeePass.
- To open your new wallet, give the following command in the same terminal (again, substituting "name"):
./simplewallet --wallet-file name.wallet
- Enter your password, when prompted. Notice that the wallet displays your receive address after “Opened wallet.” You will use this to fund your new wallet.
- Now we must get our wallet’s seed phrase, as well as set an additional password for the seed itself. Give the command:
- Again, when prompted provide a password for the seed phrase you’re about to get. Confirm the password, and be sure to save both it and your seed phrase!!
You've successfully installed your new Zano Wallet!
