ZecWallet Fullnode is a z-Addr first, Sapling compatible wallet and full node for zcashd that runs on Linux, Windows and macOS.
Note: Zecwallet Fullnode will download the entire blockchain (about 36GB), and requires some familiarity with the command line. If you don't want to download the blockchain but prefer a Lite wallet, please check out Zecwallet Lite.

If you are on Debian/Ubuntu, please download the '.AppImage' package and just run it.
If you prefer to install a
.deb package, that is also available.
sudo apt install -f ./zecwallet_1.8.7_amd64.deb
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 needs a Zcash node running zcashd. If you already have a zcashd node running, ZecWallet will connect to it.
You need to manually start the zcashd node so that Zecwallet can connect to it. The first time you run zcashd, you need to:
- Create a zcash.conf file with at least:
server=1 rpcuser=<someusername> rpcpassword=<somepassword>
./fetch-params.shto get the Zcash params
./zcashd-wallet-toolto configure your seed phrase and set up your Orchard accounts.
All binaries needed are included in the distribution.
Compiling from source
ZecWallet is written in Electron/Typescript and can be build from source. 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.

git clone https://github.com/ZcashFoundation/zecwallet.git cd zecwallet yarn install yarn build
