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.

Very Important!!

   DO NOT USE AGE VERIFICATION UNTIL WE HAVE MORE MINERS ON THE NEW CLIENT!!! 

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.

Ubuntu 16 & 17

"Ubuntu16.04 instructions"

"Ubuntu 17 Xenity instructions"

I will post some more complete linux notes shortly.
