HOW TO SETUP & SYNC YOUR DESKTOP WALLET

Desktop wallets make up the foundation of the PotCoin network.
They allow you to have complete control of your money, highest level of security, and earn interest on your money.


*** IMPORTANT! DO NOT SEND ANY COINS TO YOUR DESKTOP WALLET UNTIL SYNCING PROCESS IS COMPLETE ***

Downloading and syncing your desktop wallet could be done in two separate ways, taking either a few minutes or several hours. The difference between the two methods depends on how comfortable you are with performing the steps. One way requires changing multiple files, the other only one. Either way, we provide you with the steps to follow for each operating system.


Method 1: Replacing three files: Zipped Blocks, Chainstate and Peers.dat file

While this is the more complex of the two (not by much), it is the one that produces the fastest results, syncing you in a matter of minutes.



  1. Download the Windows desktop wallet.
  2. Launch the wallet and you will see that it is many many weeks behind (this is normal). Usually this would take several days to sync but you'll be greatly accelerating this process by manually adding the blockchain rather then letting it sync on its own.
  3. Next, make sure you close the desktop client before the next few steps.
  4. Open the folder located in the following path: C:users > admin (or your user account) > AppData > Roaming > PotCoin
    Note: If you cannot locate the AppData folder, it's because it's hidden so you need to show hidden files and folders.

  5. Download the zip file here which contains:
    – Blocks folder
    – Chainstate folder
    – Peers.dat file
  6. Extract the contents of the zipped file you just downloaded and look for the folders that match the ones you'll be replacing.
  7. Replace any files that currently exist in the PotCoin folder with those from the zipped file, as shown below:
  8. Launch the PotCoin desktop wallet and wait! The splash screen will show for at least 10 minutes, which is normal (depending on the speed of you computer it can take up to 30 mins). It will appear as if the program has crashed on the splash screen but don't worry, it hasn’t and it just needs time to process the block info you just added. Please be patient. Walk away from you computer and go roll one up while you wait.
  9. Once the splash screen goes away and the client has fully loaded you will notice that the blockchain is a couple of days behind instead of 190+ weeks. It should now only take less than an hour to complete the sync instead of several days.

  1. Download the Linux desktop wallet.
  2. Install the PotCoin wallet using the command:
    $ ./potcoind
  3. Download zip file here which contains:
    – Blocks folder
    – Chainstate folder
    – Peers.dat file
  4. Extract the contents of the downloaded file:
    $ unzip potcoin-date.zip
  5. Copy the downloaded folders (Blocks and Chainstate) and file (peers.dat) into the hidden folder of PotCoin:
    $ cp -rf /home/user/Download/potcoin-date/* /home/user/.potcoin/
  6. If asked, overwrite all existing files
  7. Launch the PotCoin Wallet and let it complete the sync process:
    $ ./potcoin-qt
  8. Once the wallet is fully synced the red “(out of sync)” error message will disappear and your wallet is ready to use!

  1. Download the Apple desktop wallet.
  2. Launch the wallet and you will see that it is many many weeks behind (this is normal). Usually this would take several days to sync but you'll be greatly accelerating this process by manually adding the blockchain rather then letting it sync on its own.
  3. Next, make sure you close the desktop client before the next few steps.
  4. Open the folder located in the following path: /Users/username/Library/Application Support/PotCoin/
    Note: If you cannot locate the above folder, it's because it's hidden so you need to show hidden files and folders.

  5. Download the zip file here which contains:
    – Blocks folder
    – Chainstate folder
    – Peers.dat file
  6. Extract the contents of the zipped file you just downloaded and look for the folders that match the ones you'll be replacing.
  7. Replace any files that currently exist in the PotCoin folder with those from the zipped file, as shown below:

  9. Once the splash screen goes away and the client has fully loaded you will notice that the blockchain is a couple of days behind instead of 190+ weeks. It should now only take less than an hour to complete the sync instead of several days.

Method 2: Replacing only one file – bootstrap.dat

While this is the simpler of the two methods to implement, it will likely take much longer to sync, albeit much still less time than the current process.



  1. Download the Windows desktop wallet.
  2. Launch the wallet and you will see that it is over 185 weeks behind. Normally this can take several days to sync, you will be accelerating this process by manually adding the blockchain rather then letting it sync.
  3. Download bootstrap.dat file here which contains the blockchain files.
  4. Make sure desktop client is closed.
  5. Move the bootstrap.dat file to: C:users > admin (or your user account) > AppData > Roaming > PotCoin
  6. Note: If you cannot locate the AppData folder you need to show hidden files and folders.

  7. Launch PotCoin desktop wallet and wait! Splash screen will show for a couple minutes (depending on the speed of you computer it can take longer).
  8. Once the splash screen goes away and the client has fully loaded you will notice that the client is “Importing blocks from disk”. This process can several days to complete.
  9. Once the wallet is fully synced the red “(out of sync)” error message will disappear and your wallet is ready to use!

  1. Download the Linux desktop wallet.
  2. Install the PotCoin wallet using the command:
    $ ./potcoind
  3. Download bootstrap.dat filewhich contains the blockchain files.
  4. Copy bootstrap.dat into the hidden folder of PotCoin:
    $ cp -rf /home/user/Download/bootstrap.dat /home/user/.potcoin/
