Horizen Desktop GUI Wallet binary release 0.90.1

It includes Horizen 2.0.21 binaries.

This wallet is targeted at advanced users who understand the implications of running a full Zen node on
the local machine, maintaining a full local copy of the blockchain, maintaining and backing up the
Zen nodes's wallet.dat file etc! The wallet is not suitable for novice crypto-currency users!

SECURITY WARNING: Encryption of the wallet.dat file is not yet supported for Horizen. Using the wallet
on a system infected with malware may result in wallet data/funds being stolen. The
wallet.dat needs to be backed up regularly (not just once - e.g. after every 30-40
outgoing transactions) and it must also be backed up after creating a new Z address.

STABILITY WARNING: The GUI wallet is as yet considered experimental! It is known to exhibit occasional stability problems related to running a full Zen node.
Specifically if the locally running zend cannot start properly due to issues with the local blockchain, the GUI cannot start either!
Users need to be prepared to fix such problems manually as described in the troubleshooting guide.
Doing so requires command line skills.

AUTO-DEPRECATION WARNING: Wallet binary releases for Mac/Windows contain ZEN full node binaries. These have an auto-deprecation feature:
they are considered outdated after 16 weeks and stop working. So they need to be updated to a newer version before this term expires.
Users need to ensure they use an up-to-date version of the wallet (e.g. update the wallet every two months or so).

Installing the Horizen Desktop GUI Wallet on Windows

It requires a 64-bit Windows 7 or later version to run.

If the resulting checksum is not 494bda4af6c92f530bb16ff1fd867aebc531282e326bec5cda13f79bb510f3fe then

Some known issues and limitations

  1. If a system has a high resolution monitor with DPI scaling enabled, not all GUI elements scale alike.
    As a result the Wallet UI may feel inconvenient to use at scaling above 1.5x or even unusable at scaling above 3x.
    This problem will be fixed in future versions.
  2. Limitation: The list of transactions does not show all outgoing ones (specifically outgoing Z address
    transactions).

Some known issues and limitations

  1. Limitation: The list of transactions does not show all outgoing ones (specifically outgoing Z address
    transactions).
  2. Limitation: if two users exchange text messages via the messaging UI TAB and one of them has a system clock, substantially running slow or fast by more than 1 minute, it is possible that this user will see text messages appearing out of order.
  3. Limitation: if a messaging identity has been created (happens on first click on the messaging UI tab), then replacing the wallet.dat or changing the node configuration between mainnet and testnet will make the identity invalid. This will result in a wallet update error. To remove the error the directory ~/.HorizenSwingWalletUI/messaging may be manually renamed or deleted (when the wallet is stopped). CAUTION: all messaging history will be lost in this case!

Horizen Desktop GUI Wallet binary release 0.85.0 for Windows

This is a Horizen Desktop GUI Wallet binary release 0.85.0 for Windows.
It requires a 64-bit Windows 7 or later version to run. It includes Horizen 2.0.16 binaries.

This wallet is targeted at advanced users who understand the implications of running a full Zen node on
the local machine, maintaining a full local copy of the blockchain, maintaining and backing up the
Zen nodes's wallet.dat file etc! The wallet is not suitable for novice crypto-currency users!

SECURITY WARNING: Encryption of the wallet.dat file is not yet supported for Horizen. Using the wallet
on a system infected with malware may result in wallet data/funds being stolen. The
wallet.dat needs to be backed up regularly (not just once - e.g. after every 30-40
outgoing transactions) and it must also be backed up after creating a new Z address.

STABILITY WARNING: The GUI wallet is as yet considered experimental! It is known to exhibit occasional stability problems related to running a full Zen node.
Specifically if the locally running zend cannot start properly due to issues with the local blockchain, the GUI cannot start either!
Users need to be prepared to fix such problems manually as described in the troubleshooting guide.
Doing so requires command line skills.

AUTO-DEPRECATION WARNING: Wallet binary releases for Mac/Windows contain ZEN full node binaries. These have an auto-deprecation feature:
they are considered outdated after 16 weeks and stop working. So they need to be updated to a newer version before this term expires.
Users need to ensure they use an up-to-date version of the wallet (e.g. update the wallet every two months or so).

Installing the Horizen Desktop GUI Wallet on Windows

  1. Download the Wallet ZIP file
    HorizenDesktopGUIWallet_0.85.0.zip.

  2. Security check: You may decide to run a virus scan on it, before proceeding... In addition using a tool
    such as http://quickhash-gui.org/ you may calculate the its SHA256 checksum. The
    result should be:

facef7a71047851199689606a563fbe9b12c4dcfbdb369340dc388ae239af3c1  HorizenDesktopGUIWallet_0.85.0.zip

If the resulting checksum is not facef7a71047851199689606a563fbe9b12c4dcfbdb369340dc388ae239af3c1 then
something is wrong and you should discard the downloaded wallet!

  1. Unzip the Wallet ZIP file HorizenDesktopGUIWallet_0.85.0.zip in some directory that it will run from.

Running the Horizen Desktop GUI Wallet on Windows

Double click on HorizenDesktopGUIWallet.exe. On first run (only) the wallet will download the cryptographic keys
(1.6GB or so). In case of problems logs are written in %LOCALAPPDATA%\ZENCashSwingWalletUI\ for diagnostics.

Some known issues and limitations

  1. If a system has a high resolution monitor with DPI scaling enabled, not all GUI elements scale alike.
    As a result the Wallet UI may feel inconvenient to use at scaling above 1.5x or even unusable at scaling above 3x.
    This problem will be fixed in future versions.
  2. Limitation: The list of transactions does not show all outgoing ones (specifically outgoing Z address
    transactions).
