Welcome to the BURST WIKI


Burst Blue Icon.png

Burst is an open-source decentralized blockchain platform that connects people, companies, and financial institutions. It allows you to move value – according to your own rules – within a scalable, green, and customizable ledger.

A key distinction that sets Burst apart from all other cryptocurrencies is its unique Proof-of-Capacity (PoC) algorithm.

Burst stands in particular contrast to Proof of Work (PoW) coins, such as Bitcoin, as it secures its network with cryptographic hash functions that are computed in advance and are retrievable for repeated use in the mining process indefinitely.

Burst was introduced in August of 2014. It was released publicly with advance notice, without pre-mine, without airdrops, and without an ICO (Initial Coin Offering). Every coin in existence was mined beginning from the genesis block.

Burst's development team, the Proof of Capacity Consortium (PoCC), welcomes you to the Burst Wiki. Below you will find information that is suitable for those who are getting started as well as more technical documentation. You are always welcome to contact the development team through the official Burst Discord channel. Please post any questions that you have and a member of the community or the development team will respond. We hope to see you there soon.

Burst is an open source blockchain platform with multiple core-level features that has been running publicly since August 2014. It is a code fork of Nxt using Proof of Capacity (PoC) consensus, meaning that you can mine it with your disk space.

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!



The wallet

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.

About Tab

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.

  1. H2 is file based, simple, and low on memory usage. However, it can have issues if the wallet is shut down incorrectly
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Plotter Plot Software


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.
