ZENCash Desktop GUI Wallet binary release 0.84.2 for Linux

The release provides a DEB package for Debian/Ubuntu and similar Linux systems. Hash may be verified as:

3260ee6ae4acfd16141543fc1fb0fc878b17c3deb70ac39c2ed30f083eee5757  *zencash-desktop-gui-wallet_0.84.2_all.deb

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 block-chain, maintaining and backing up the Zen node'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 ZENCash. 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.

Installing the ZENCash Desktop GUI Wallet on Linux

The easiest installation procedure is not to download the DEB package from here but to instead follow the instructions to use the ZENCash APT respotiroy..
