ArrowWallet is a private transaction, Sapling compatible wallet and full node for arrowd that runs on Linux, Windows and macOS.


Head over to the releases page and grab the latest installers or binary.


If you are on Debian/Ubuntu, please download the .deb package and install it.

sudo dpkg -i linux-deb-zecwallet-v0.6.11.deb
sudo apt install -f

Or you can download and run the binaries directly.

tar -xvf zecwallet-v0.6.11.tar.gz


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.


Double-click on the .dmg file to open it, and drag zecwallet on to the Applications link to install.


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 (~1.7 GB) and configure zcash.conf for you.

Pass --no-embedded to disable the embedded zcashd and force ZecWallet to connect to an external node.

Compiling from source

ZecWallet is written in C++ 14, and can be compiled with g++/clang++/visual c++. It also depends on Qt5, which you can get from here. 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.

See detailed build instructions on the wiki

Building on Linux

git clone
cd zecwallet
/path/to/qt5/bin/qmake CONFIG+=debug
make -j$(nproc)


Building on Windows

You need Visual Studio 2017 (The free C++ Community Edition works just fine).

From the VS Tools command prompt

git clone
cd zecwallet
c:\Qt5\bin\qmake.exe -spec win32-msvc CONFIG+=debug


To create the Visual Studio project files so you can compile and run from Visual Studio:

c:\Qt5\bin\qmake.exe -tp vc CONFIG+=debug

Building on macOS

You need to install the Xcode app or the Xcode command line tools first, and then install Qt.

git clone
cd zecwallet
/path/to/qt5/bin/qmake CONFIG+=debug
