Dashcoin works through 2 separate binary files operated through command line:
– daemon to synchronize the block chain and mine dashcoins.
– wallet to receive and send funds.
Make sure that dashcoind.exe is running and synced
when you start simplewallet.exe
Always use "exit" command
to terminate both dashcoind.exe and simplewallet.exe to save current synchronization progress.
1. Unzip the archive.
2. Download block chain archive and unpack it to C:\Users\%user_name%\AppData\Roaming\dashcoin\ - Download block chain
After dashcoind.exe is launched you will have to wait until it is synchronized with the network. You will be notified with several green "SYNCHRONIZED OK" messages.
Here are the most important daemon commands:
|start_mining <wallet_address> [threads=1]
||Start mining in several threads to a given wallet address
||Show current mining hashrate
||Stop showing current mining hashrate
||Show all daemon commands
||Save block chain synchronization progress
||Save block chain and exit dashcoind
Simplewallet.exe can only be used after the daemon is launched and synchronized.
Here are the most important wallet commands:
||Show your wallet address
||Refresh your wallet balance
|transfer <mixin_count> <address> <amount>
||Send money to <address> with a mixing degree of <mixin_count>
||Start mining in daemon with several threads to the current wallet address
||Stop mining in daemon
||Show all wallet commands
