Sphere by Horizen is envisioned as a launching point for Horizen services. Version 1.0.0-beta hosts wallet functions with the following features:

  • Full client with both transparent, private transactions

  • Lite client with transparent transactions

  • The wallet is deterministic, meaning if you lose your account, you can restore cryptocurrency funds through a user-friendly process involving a unique 24-word phrase

  • Secure messaging with full client version

  • Ability to switch between a full or light client

  • Ability to run a full node

  • More features coming soon!

Supported Operating Systems

For beta launch, we are currently only supporting 64 bit x86 CPUs. 32 bit and ARM64 support may be considered in future releases.

  • Windows 10 64 bit

  • macOS Sierra and above 64 bit

  • Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS 64 bit

  • Linux Mint 19 Tara 64 bit

  • Debian 9 64 bit

Recommended system specifications for running in full mode.

  • Available memory 4GB (RAM + swap).

  • Intel Haswell architecture CPUs (or AMD equivalent) and newer.

  • Due to the size of the blockchain at this point we would recommend keeping a minimum of 30GB of storage space free. This requirement will increase over time with blockchain growth.

Installation instructions

  • All installers are available here https://github.com/ZencashOfficial/Sphere_by_Horizen/releases/latest

  • For Windows, download and run the .exe installer package and follow the standard windows installation procedure.

  • For macOS, download and run the latest standard macOS package

    macOS packages have the ".dmg" file extension.

    Please install as you would any other non-app store macOS package by launching the file (double click) and moving the app to your Applications folder via the installer window.

  • For Linux we supply both .deb packages for Debian systems and also a standalone AppImage to support other Linux based distributions.

    ".deb" images can be opened and installed via a graphical package manager should you have one installed.

    You may also install via the terminal for example.

    $ sudo dpkg -i example_file_name.deb
    

    AppImage files are self-contained and can be launched by firstly making the AppImage file executable via

    $ chmod a+x example_file_name*.AppImage
    

    And then run

    $ ./example_file_name*.AppImage
