The easiest choice for beginners using Windows is to download Qbundle. QBundle is a convenient launcher which installs the BRS local wallet, plotting software, and mining software with a few clicks.
Download the QBundle installation files and return here to complete the installation. Sets of instructions are grouped logically, with reference images of installation screens immediately following each section. Images may vary from the actual installation screens depending on your version of Windows and internet browser.
Download the installation Files
The installation files are located here: https://www.burst-coin.org. Open this link in a new browser tab if possible. After following this link: </div>
- Click on "Download wallet".
- Select your operating system: (Please note: If your operating system is not Windows, QBundle will not be available and you will need to choose an option specific to your operating system.)
- Select Qbundle to be redirected to the PoC Consortium GitHub site. GitHub is a software development platform and hosts the files needed for installation. Future releases will be located here as well.
- Download and save the latest release, identified by a green indicator. As of the writing of this guide, the latest release is Version 2.5.0. The installation file is QBundle2.5.0_final.zip. (Make a note of the saved location)
- Locate the saved file. A common location is C: Users/"user name"/Downloads. You may move this file to another location if you wish.
- Extract the included files using Windows "Extract all" button if available. If you do not have this functionality, you may need a utility to "unzip" the folder.
- Launch the setup of QBundle by clicking on the extracted version of the following file: Name: BurstWallet Type: Application.
- Proceed through the Windows warnings related to protecting your computer by clicking on "More Info" followed by "Run Anyway".

Please give this up to 30 minutes.
The rate of import will depend upon the computer and network connection.
When it is synchronized 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!
Here's the connection screen:
In case the user already has an activated Burst account, they can use their passphrase to log in by clicking the "Returning User?" button.
If, however, the user doesn't have a Burst account, clicking the "New? Create Your Account!" button will allow them to do so. For full guide on how to open and activate a Burst account, read this Burst Wiki article.
Finally, here's the look of the QBundle and Burst Wallet:

The "About" menu option contains information about the contributors to QBundle and the main architect.
My wallet is stuck, how can I resolve this?
The advanced menu item provides the option to "rollback chain". This can be done if there are issues starting the wallet or blockchain synchronization does not complete. Popping of 1000 blocks and allowing re synchronization is recommended. The maximum number of blocks that can be "popped off" is 1400.
How do I change the database type to MariaDB?
Changing the database type is an advanced option. When the database is changed, re synchronization will occur. If moving to HR, bootstrapping is possible. If moving from H2 to MariaDB, bootstrapping is not currently available.
The default database type installed with QBundle is H2. This can be changed to Portable MariaDB or own MariaDB/MySQL.
- H2 is file based, simple, and low on memory usage. However, it can have issues if the wallet is shut down incorrectly
- Portable MariaDB is higher performing, has a lower disk footprint, is more stable when shut down incorrectly. However, it is current not possible to bootstrap.
- Own MariaDB /MySQL is the highest performing database, used for large installations, and will be needed for high-stress applications, financial or tax analytics, and reporting.
If MariaDB is selected, QBundle will initiate the download and execute the installation of the required database.
With the current version of the BRS wallet, it is not possible to copy data from H2 to MariaDB.

10. From BRS Main
In order to run the wallet locally, we need a database to store the blochchain information. The following guide shows the setup of MariaDB as database and the installation of the Burst Reference Software on MacOS.
MariaDB is used as database to store the blockchain. The following steps will guide you through the installation of MariaDB on MacOS.
First check that Xcode is up to date by typing the following and pressing enter.
After installing Xcode, install MariaDB by typing the following and pressing enter.
brew install mariadb
Once MariaDB is finished installing, start MariaDB with the following.
brew services start mariadb
As soon as MariaDB is successfully installed, we can log into the MariaDB interface and setup database like explained in Setup MariaDB
- Now, download the lateste release from the Github release section
- Find the folder you downloaded from github and double click it. Archive utility will now extract it to a new folder.
- Rename the extracted folder to
- Open the
conffolder inside the extracted folder
- Right click the file
brs-default.propertiesand select "Open With → TextEdit".
- Find the following lines and enter
burstwalletas database user and your password (assigned beforehand) as database password brs.dbUsername=burstwallet brs.dbPassword=<your password>
- Move that folder to your home folder. This may appear as your username.
- Back in terminal, navigate to the
burstcoinfolder. cd ~/burstcoin
burst.shexecutable. chmod +x burst.sh
- Now execute
burst.sh. This is how you will start the wallet in the future. To execute this command you must be inside the burtscoin folder in the terminal. ./burst.sh
- The wallet should now be running. In your web browser navigate to http://localhost:8125/ to access the wallet interface.
The Burst ecosystem is supported by a great deal of highly developed open source software. Fortunately, a great deal of technical knowledge is not required to actually use Burst software. This is particularly true for those using the Windows operating system. All of the software necessary for transacting business using Burst, basic mining operations, and even for running a full node is available in a fully integrated package called QBundle. QBundle can be installed with just a few clicks and a little time waiting for all of the heavy lifting to be completed automatically. The only requirement is a 64 bit installed version of Windows.
For more experienced users, this software library contains the entire collection of Burst software.
Please note: New users should review the guide entitled "Getting Started with Burst" before installing or using any Burst software.
