SilentDragon desktop wallet for HUSH ($HUSH) runs on Linux, Windows and macOS. This is experimental software under active development!



SilentDragon contacts a few different external websites to get various bits of data. * for price data API * for explorer links * for address utilities

This means your IP address is known to these servers. Enable Tor setting in SilentDragon to prevent this, or better yet, use TAILS:


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


SilentDragon needs a Hush full node running hushd. If you already have a hushd node running, SilentDragon will connect to it.

If you don't have one, SilentDragon will start its embedded hushd node.

Additionally, if this is the first time you're running SilentDragon or a hushd daemon, SilentDragon will find Sapling params (~50 MB) and configure HUSH3.conf for you.

Pass --no-embedded to disable the embedded hushd and force SilentDragon to connect to an external node.

Compiling from source

SilentDragon 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 hushd by default. You can either run an external hushd, or compile hushd as well.

Building on Linux

sudo apt-get install qt5-default qt5-qmake libqt5websockets5-dev qtcreator
git clone
cd SilentDragon

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 SilentDragon
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 SilentDragon
qmake CONFIG+=debug


Emulating the embedded node

In binary releases, SilentDragon will use node binaries in the current directory to sync a node from scratch. It does not attempt to download them, it bundles them. To simulate this from a developer setup, you can symlink these four files in your Git repo:

    ln -s ../hush3/src/hushd
    ln -s ../hush3/src/komodod
    ln -s ../hush3/src/komodo-cli

The above assumes silentdragon and hush3 git repos are in the same directory. File names on Windows will need to be tweaked.
