CLI Wallet is a desktop platform software programmed to run on Windows, Mac or Linux operating system using Command Line Interface.

Download CLI Wallet Software

You can find the binary distributions here.

Check the version of the software and make sure that it is marked with "Latest release" with "Verified" Symbol.

"Latest release" in green with "Verified" symbol

Within that version of release, scroll down and you will find a list of files that has the same version number of the latest release.

From here you will be able to choose the appropriate file for your chosen platform (ex. Linux, Windows, Mac). The binaries are provided in .zip files.

Install

Linux

Extract the .zip file

upzip qwertycoin-linux-v5.0.0.zip

Windows

Extract the .zip file

qwertycoin-win64-v5.0.0.zip

Mac

Syncing the Blockchain

Running qwertycoind will start the network daemon which will start downloading and verifying the Qwertycoin blockchain.

This can take sometime because qwertycoind must verify every block.

Syncing the Blockchain Using Checkpoints

You can sync the blockchain much faster by using checkpoints.

Setup

  • Right click this link and choose Save link as... to download the latest checkpoints.csv.

  • Place checkpoints.csv in the same folder as your Qwertycoind daemon

  • You can get Qwertycoind from here if you don't have it already: https://github.com/qwertycoin-org/qwertycoin/releases

  • Make sure you shut down any GUI wallets, or any other instances of Qwertycoind.

Usage

Linux, Apple

  • First, open a command prompt in the same directory as Qwertycoind.

  • You can use the cd command to change to this directory. For example, cd Downloads/qwertycoincoin-v3.0.1

  • Alternatively, your file manager may provide the ability to open a terminal in your current directory. Navigate to the folder with Qwertycoind in, and try right clicking, to see if you can open a terminal there:

  • Finally, type ./Qwertycoind --load-checkpoints checkpoints.csv in the terminal.

Windows

  • First, open a command prompt in the same directory as Qwertycoind.

  • This can easily be done by moving to the Qwertycoind directory in Windows Explorer, then typing cmd in the search bar and hitting enter:

  • Finally, type Qwertycoind.exe --load-checkpoints checkpoints.csv in the command prompt.

Expected Output

If you did the steps correctly, you should see something like this output.

2018-May-13 11:58:39.654478 INFO Welcome to Qwertycoind v3.0.1.1948 (HEAVY)
2018-May-13 11:58:39.654914 INFO Module folder: Qwertycoind
2018-May-13 11:58:39.655249 INFO Loading Checkpoints for faster initial sync...
2018-May-13 11:58:40.854979 INFO Loaded 90695 checkpoints from checkpoints.csv
  • Qwertycoind will then start syncing from checkpoints.

  • If you are using the CLI wallet, then you can just wait for it to finish syncing, and open your wallet.

  • If you are using a GUI wallet, let it finish syncing, close it down by typing exit in the window, then open your GUI wallet.

Using Simplewallet

With qwertycoind still running in the background or another terminal prompt, open simplewallet.

Linux/Mac

./simplewallet

Windows

Run the simplewallet.exe executable from the extracted folder.
