This release contains some minor bug fixes and it simplifies the setup process by shipping the Tor anonymity network, removing the need to manually install it.

How To Install?

1. Get The Requirements

  1. Git: https://git-scm.com/downloads
  2. .NET Core 2.1 SDK: https://www.microsoft.com/net/download (Note, you can disable .NET's telemetry by typing export DOTNET_CLI_TELEMETRY_OPTOUT=1 on Linux and OSX or set DOTNET_CLI_TELEMETRY_OPTOUT=1 on Windows.)

2. Get Wasabi

Open terminal/command line and type the following command:

git clone https://github.com/zkSNACKs/WalletWasabi.git --recursive

How To Update?

Open terminal/command line from your your WalletWasabi folder and type the following command:

git pull && git submodule update --init --recursive 

How To Run?

Open terminal/command line from your your WalletWasabi/WalletWasabi.Gui folder and type the following command:

dotnet run

Notes

  • Configuration, wallet and similar files can be found in %appdata%\WalletWasabi folder on Windows and in ~/.walletwasabi folder on Linux/OSX.
  • Note, OSX is NOT supported at this point, we are currently working on fixing the bugs we have in that platform. You may follow our progress here: AvaloniaUI/Avalonia#1789
  • If you already have Tor, and it is running, then Wasabi will try to use that first, if not, then Wasabi will use its built-in Tor. If your Tor is out of date, then you'll get many error messages. Make sure it's not out of date: Check Tor version: tor --version. If it's not at least 0.3.2.2, then see this writeup on how to update it, or just stop your own Tor and let Wasabi use its built-in, up-to-date one.

Release Notes

  • This Beta Release is stable.
  • We plan the 1.0 Release for October 31.
  • In the Beta Release you must build Wasabi from source code. You will not have to do it from the 1.0 Release.
  • OSX is not supported in the Beta Release. While Wasabi already works on OSX, we deemed our OSX GUI to be unstable, therefore not recommended. OSX users will be able to use a stable Wasabi from the 1.0 Release. You can follow our OSX stabilization work here: AvaloniaUI/Avalonia#1789
  • In the Beta Release a mixing round is triggered in every 24h or every time when 100 mixing participants reached. The difference of the 1.0 Release is that, a mixing round will be triggered in every 7 days.
  • The mixing round denomination of the Beta Release will be 0.01 BTC at first and we will gradually increase it to 0.1 BTC until the 1.0 Release. At which point we will keep it there. We decided to do this based on your feedbacks.
  • Read more about the software: Wasabi: Privacy Focused Bitcoin Wallet for Desktop
  • Get familiar with the trustless ZeroLink protocol, that Wasabi implements: https://github.com/nopara73/ZeroLink/
  • To get familiar with the history of Wasabi, watch nopara73's presentation on the Building on Bitcoin conference.
  • If you get stuck during this guide, please check out a this demo video.

Note that: until the stable version is out, it is not advised to use HiddenWallet on the mainnet. Note, bugs are not related to coin loss. Your coins are safe, HiddenWallet will not accidentally send wrong amount, or sign an invalid mixing transaction. Rather bugs, like slow UI responses, get stuck at syncing, or get your coins accidentally banned from mixing can happen.

Binaries

Binaries are provided for Windows x64 and Linux x64. If you are using a different operating system you need to build the project by yourself from source code. Click here for instructions.

Instructions

Windows

  1. Download and unzip the downloaded archive.
  2. Run "HiddenWallet.exe".

Linux

  1. Make sure Tor is installed and in your PATH: sudo apt install tor.
  2. Download and unzip the downloaded archive.
  3. sudo chmod -R a+rwx ./HiddenWallet-0.6.4-linux
  4. cd HiddenWallet-0.6.4-linux
  5. ./hiddenwallet

Updating From Old Versions

If you were using an older version, than v0.5.3 before you must know, the newer versions store your data files, including your wallet files in %appdata%/hiddenwallet folder in Windows and ~/.hiddenwallet folder in Linux and OSX. This means, from now on, updating to newer version of HiddenWallet is seamless, you can just delete the old version, download and run the new version. Porting the data from the old version to the new version happens the following way:

  1. Download and run the new HiddenWallet once.
  2. Open your old HiddenWallet folder, copy your Config.json file, your FullBlockSpv and Wallets directories to the location, depending on your OS, mentioned above.
  3. You can safely delete your old HiddenWallet folder.
