Description

The easiest choice for beginners on Windows is to download Qbundle, a launcher allowing you to install the Burst local wallet in a few clicks. You can simply follow the wizard walking you through the set up. Qbundle also includes plotting and mining software to start mining easily.

Initial installation guide

Through https://www.burst-coin.org/download-wallet

Download-wallet.png

Select Qbundle, and it will direct you to the github.

We will select the MSI installation in this guide, the other alternative it a self-contained ‘zip’ download that will need extraction before It can be run. This ‘zip’ version is useful if you wish to set up along side an existing installation (Provided you have first stopped the other wallet, and do not run at the same time!)

We will be using the 2.0.0 version, but always download the latest release. (note the green ‘Latest release’ indicator beside)

Bootstrap Chain / Import Blockchain

You now have a working wallet, which will synch from ‘Genesis’.

This will take some time, so I would advise we ‘bootstrap’ the installation.

Please give this up to 30 minutes.

The rate of import will depend upon the computer and network connection.

When it is synchronised you will see something like the following (close to your current date/time)

Congratulations, you now have a fully synchronised wallet, running on the H2 database!
