KYD Core


KYD Core is the original KYD client and it builds the backbone of the network. However, it downloads and stores the entire history of KYD 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 KYD on your native platform.


Unpack the files into a directory and run:

  • bin/32/kyd-qt (GUI, 32-bit) or bin/32/kydd (headless, 32-bit)
  • bin/64/kyd-qt (GUI, 64-bit) or bin/64/kydd (headless, 64-bit)


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


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