This version of YecWallet brings fastsync support.

When you first start YecWallet, you can select the "fastsync" option (checked by default) to improve initial sync speed.

About fastsync

Fastsync is a feature that speeds up initial block synchronization by relying on PoW to verify block integrity instead of checking every single transaction. This mode is useful if you are:

  1. Don't have a wallet yet or
  2. Plan to import private keys into ycashd at a later stage.

Depending on your CPU and network speed, fastsync can improve the initial sync time by 25% - 33%

This is the release of Ycash v2.0.5. This release fixes some issues encountered during restarts.

All users should upgrade to this version as soon possible, well in advance of the Ycash/Zcash chain fork on July 18, 2019.

Reindex Required

If you are upgrading from Ycash 1.0, a reindex is required:

YecWallet users: When you run YecWallet v2.0.5 for the first time, a reindex will be scheduled automatically:

  1. Start YecWallet v.2.0.5.
  2. There will be two error dialogs. You can dismiss them.
  3. Quit YecWallet v.2.0.5.
  4. Start YecWallet v.2.0.5. The reindex will begin automatically.

ycashd users: Invoke ycashd with the -reindex flag.

Note to all Ycash users who also run a Zcash full node: You can avoid the reindex by copying over the "blocks" and "chainstate" directories from Zcash:

  1. Quit ZecWallet/ycashd/YecWallet/ycashd.
  2. Delete the "blocks" directory and "chainstate" directory from the ".ycash" directory.
  3. Copy over "blocks" directory and "chainstate" directory from the ".zcash" directory to the ".ycash" directory.

General Installation Instructions

YecWallet

For most users, YecWallet is the easiest way to join the Ycash network. (YecWallet will configure an embedded ycashd for you.)

Mac users: Download the macOS-binaries-ycash-v2.0.5.zip file below, unzip it, double-click the macOS-yecwallet-v2.0.5.dmg file, drag YecWallet to the Applications folder, and then double-click on YecWallet to start.

Windows users: Download the Windows-binaries-ycash-v2.0.5.zip file below, unzip it, and then double-click on YecWallet to start.

Linux users: Download the linux-binaries-ycash-v2.0.5.tar.gz file below, run tar -xvf linux-binaries-ycash-v1.0.tar.gz from the command line, and the run ./ycash-v2.0.5/yecwallet from the command line to start.

ycashd

Advanced users can choose to configure ycashd directly, and then optionally use YecWallet.

You will need the Zcash parameters in the ~/.zcash-params folders before you start. Create a ~/.ycash/ycash.conf file with configuration options. Common options are:

server=1
addnode=mainnet.ycash.xyz
addnode=main2.ycash.xyz
rpcuser=<user>
rpcpassword=<password>

(Be sure to replace <user> and <password> with your chosen username and password. For important security considerations about this username and password, see the related configuration guide for Zcash.)

In general, users configuring ycash.conf with less common options should be familiar with configuration guide for Zcash, which contains important security considerations.

YecWallet will try to connect to a running ycashd node. If it can't find one, it will launch its embedded ycashd node. If you want to prevent YecWallet from ever launching it's embedded ycashd, start YecWallet with the --no-embedded option.
