Curecoin’s GUI client “curecoin-qt” wallet (curecoin-qt) can be build on Linux distributions (Ubuntu 14.04 example)

These instructions allow you to install a CureCoin client with a nice graphical interface (there is a purely command-line driven (headless) wallet installation instructions available in the README). Installing either one, or both is extremely simple.

Build Instructions on Linux

(more details available in README file after download)

Downloading the source from

git clone https://github.com/cygnusxi/CurecoinSource.git

Meet the dependencies, compiling the code, and then installing the resulting software.

sudo apt-get install qt5-default qt5-qmake qtbase5-dev-tools qttools5-dev-tools libboost-dev libboost-system-dev libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-program-options-dev libboost-thread-dev libssl-dev libminiupnpc-dev libdb5.3++-dev dh-make build-essential

From the main directory, run the following:

qmake && make

sudo make install

Alternatively, don’t run that command and just place the binary wherever you want.

Ensure you maintain your network connectivity on your *secure PC for the next steps

First Steps

Open your new  CureCoin QT wallet and allow it to synchronize with the CureCoin network
this can take some time depending on the speed of your internet connection and your systems resources)

Once synchronized (you will see a green check-mark in the lower right corner of the app, you can proceed to step

Create an additional Receiver Address under the “Receive coins” tab (optional)

Click “New Address” in the lower left

Create a human readable label for your wallet

The wallet will create a 34 character alpha-numeric “Receiver Address” on the CureCoin blockchain

(This is often referred to as a “Public Key” which you share in order to receive payment for your goods, services, withdrawals from pools or exchanges, or even donations to your charity)

Populate your ‘Address Book’ 

Click “New Address” in the lower left

Create a human readable label for your common recipient’s address

The wallet will require the 34 character alpha-numeric “Receiver Address” of your recipient.

This is referred to as your recipient’s “Public Key” to which you send payment for their goods, services, exchanges accounts, or even donations to a charity.

Now you are ready to do business with your wallet – AND even earn a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) as a means of “earning interest” for letting your wallet participate in the CureCoin network, in helping confirm other’s transactions, and ultimately securing the network.

Be sure to learn how to Encrypt your wallet AND how to Backup Your wallet to ensure your Curecoin’s can be preserved long-term in cold-storage.
