New Installation

See these instructions: Installing on Windows


Upgrading Windows/Mac

The easy way, longer way:

  1. Take a backup of your wallet!!!!
  2. Shut down your client.
  3. Download and run the installer.
  4. Start the new client.
  5. Its downloading the full blockchain, Mine syncs in about 5-8 hours.

The faster way:

  1. Take a backup of your wallet!!!!
  2. Download the bootstrap file:
  3. Download the installer:
  4. Unzip bootstrap.dat to your data directory. This is the folder that contains wallet.dat.
    1. Windows default: '%APPDATA%\Roaming\Sexcoin'
    2. Mac Default : 'Users\<you>\Application Support\Sexcoin'
  5. Run the installer.
  6. Start the client. It will pick up the presence of the bootstrap file and start importing blocks from it. This takes about 2-3 hours in my environment.

If you really want to sync fast, view the README for the bootstrap project.

Linux Users:

At the moment, you need to build the Sexcoin client yourself.

 git clone https://github.com/sexcoin-project/sexcoin


Ubuntu 12.04 & 14.04

Building on these versions is nearly painless. Use the /depends build methods and get QT5 GUI versions up and going with no problems.

View the README's in the /depends directory for instructions.
