TurtleCoin Build Branches
To use TurtleCoin, you'll need a way to connect to the network, and a wallet to hold your funds. This software includes those things for you, you can compile it yourself, or you can download the ones that we have compiled for you.

Getting Started Fast
Everyone starts somewhere. If you're new or returning, you'll probably want to get in sync with the network so you can use your funds. Syncing from your own node is faster than syncing from a remote node. Here are some handy links to get you there as soon as possible.
- Use checkpoints - Checkpoints help your node sync faster, learn more or download here
- Learn things - Syncing will take time, to help pass that time learning how to use TRTL
- Backup your keys - You can generate a wallet right inside the software, or use this generator that will make a printable physical paper wallet to put in a safe place for later.
