HempPAY desktop wallet for THC ($THC) runs on Linux, Windows and macOS. This is experimental software under active development!

Screenshot 1 Screenshot 2


HempPAY contacts a few different external websites to get various bits of data. * for price data API * for address utilities + explorer links

This means your IP address is known to these servers. Enable Tor setting in HempPAY to prevent this, or better yet, use TAILS:


Head over to the releases page and grab the latest installers or binary.


HempPay needs a THC full node running. If you already have a full node running, this wallet will connect to it.

If you don't have one, HempPay will start its embedded THC full node.

Additionally, if this is the first time you're running HempPAY or a THC full node daemon, HempPAY will download Sprout + Sapling params (1.6GB) and configure THC.conf for you.

Pass --no-embedded to disable the embedded komodod and force HempPAY to connect to an external node.

Compiling from source

HempPAY is written in C++ 14, and can be compiled with g++/clang++/visual c++. It also depends on Qt5, which you can get from here. Note that if you are compiling from source, you won't get the embedded komodod by default. You can either run an external komodod, or compile komodod as well.

Building on Linux

sudo apt-get install qt5-default qt5-qmake libqt5websockets5-dev
git clone
cd HempPAY
qmake CONFIG+=debug
make -j$(nproc)


Building on Windows

You need Visual Studio 2017 (The free C++ Community Edition works just fine).

From the VS Tools command prompt

git clone
cd HempPAY
c:\Qt5\bin\qmake.exe -spec win32-msvc CONFIG+=debug


To create the Visual Studio project files so you can compile and run from Visual Studio:

c:\Qt5\bin\qmake.exe -tp vc CONFIG+=debug

Building on macOS

You need to install the Xcode app or the Xcode command line tools first, and then install Qt.

git clone
cd HempPAY
qmake CONFIG+=debug


Emulating the embedded node

In binary releases, HempPAY will use node binaries in the current directory to sync a node from scratch. It does not attempt to download them, it bundles them. To simulate this from a developer setup, you can symlink these four files in your Git repo:

    ln -s ../komodo/src/komodod
    ln -s ../komodo/src/komodo-cli

The above assumes HempPAY and komodo git repos are in the same directory. File names on Windows will need to be tweaked.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
