Point Core


Point Core is the original POINT client and it builds the backbone of the network. However, it downloads and stores the entire history of POINT transactions; depending on the speed of your computer and network connection, the synchronization process can take anywhere from a few hours to a day or more. Thankfully you only have to do this once.


The following are some helpful notes on how to run POINT on your native platform.


Unpack the files into a directory and run:

  • bin/32/point-qt (GUI, 32-bit) or bin/32/pointd (headless, 32-bit)
  • bin/64/point-qt (GUI, 64-bit) or bin/64/pointd (headless, 64-bit)


Unpack the files into a directory, and then run point-qt.exe.


Drag point-Qt to your applications folder, and then run point-Qt.
