Standard Installation

  1. Windows, Mac, Linux operating system - for client downloads visit curecoin releases

Installation for Linux from source

There are two CureCoin clients that you can choose: one with a nice graphical interface, and one that operates entirely in the command-line. The first is highly recommended and is a good choice for most users, but expert users may prefer the command-line (headless) client instead. The GUI client is known as "curecoin-qt" and the headless client is called "curecoind". Installing either one or both is extremely simple. Just follow these directions:

  • Install from source

    This involves downloading the source, meeting the dependencies, compiling the code, and then installing the resulting software.

    git clone


    1. sudo apt-get install qt4-qmake libqt4-dev libboost-dev libboost-system-dev libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-program-options-dev libboost-thread-dev libssl-dev libminiupnpc-dev libdb5.3++-dev dh-make build-essential
    2. From the main directory, run the following:
    3. qmake && make
    4. sudo make install Alternatively, don't run that command and just place the binary wherever you want.


    1. sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev libqrencode-dev libssl-dev libdb5.3-dev libdb5.3++-dev libminiupnpc-dev dh-make build-essential
    2. cd src/ && mkdir obj/ && make -f makefile.unix
    3. sudo make install Alternatively, don't run that command and just place the binary wherever you want.

    libdb4.8 should also work if libdb5.1 is too high a version for you. Newer versions of Linux will need libdb5.3++-dev
