Notes

BLOC-electron-wallet relies on BLOC-service to manage wallet container & rpc communication.

Release installer & packaged archives includes a ready to use BLOC-service binary, which is unmodified copy BLOC release archive.

On first launch, BLOC-electron-wallet will try to detect location/path of bundled BLOC-service binary, but if autodetection failed, you can manually set path to the BLOC-service binary on the Settings screen.

If you don't trust the bundled BLOC-service file, you can compare the checksum (sha256sum) against one from the official release, or simply download and use the binary from official BLOC release, which is available here: https://github.com/furiousteam/BLOC/releases. Then, make sure to update your BLOC-service path setting.
