Warning: the current version is only a preview which runs on the testnet, it is not easy to use and set up. To run it you will need to install Bitcoin-Qt (or bitcoind) in addition to ChromaWallet, and to configure it to run on testnet with enabled API server.
Binary releases are signed with Alex Mizrahi's PGP key
You need to download and install Bitcoin-Qt
(or bitcoind) before you can run ChromaWallet on your machine. Note that you shouldn't run Bitcoin-Qt right away, as it will start downloading 15 GB Bitcoin blockchain. Instead you should configure it to use testnet. To do that:
- Edit bitcoin.conf (%appdata%\bitcoin\bitcoin.conf on Windows, ~/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf on UNIX-like systems, more info), adding rpcuser and rpcpassword parameters (they should be chosen at random)
- In a command-line terminal (e.g. cmd, xterm) find the directory where Bitcoin-Qt is installed and run it with parameters:
bitcoin-qt -server -testnet -txindex
- (Note that if you previously run bitcoind/bitcoin-qt without -txindex parameter it will complain, in that case you need to run it with an additional -reindex parameter just once.)
- Wait until it downloads the testnet blockchain, it takes 30 minutes or more
Now you can run ChromaWallet: run ngccc-gui from the directory you unpacked it to.
