Desktop Client

June 10th, 2018: We are now officially releasing the Action Coin desktop client version 1.11.10 for the Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) and Linux operating systems. The Mac version will be released at a later date.

Download Java

Before starting you need to run Java. Download the program from the official Oracle homepage:

https://java.com/en/download/

Choose the file corresponding to your operating system and install it. As soon as you have Java installed we can install Action Coin!

Windows Client

The Windows client installs like any other application and should work on all modern versions of Windows. Once installed, you may launch it from the start menu or via the desktop icon; depending on the choices that you made during installation. The database and log files will be stored in Users\Your Username\AppData\Roaming\ACTION

You may install the wallet as a light client, but we do suggest that you opt to download the entire blockchain instead (ie: do not select the light client option during installation). You only need to do it once. Do not select the testnet option during installation (we do not offer a public testnet at this time). Select the “create desktop icon” during installation for ease of use. Once installed and launched for the first time, the application will start the blockchain download process. The blockchain download will take anywhere from a few hours to a day or two depending on your hardware configuration and the speed of your connection. The desktop wallet should automatically open in “Roaming” mode within 5-10 minutes (once again depending on your system). Right click the Action icon within your system tray to check the wallet status, view the application log file, open the wallet in your browser, launch or shutdown the application.

64-bit Windows Installer (tested on Windows 7, Windows 10):

The desktop client will not transmit your passphrase to our public nodes, and is the safest way to access your wallet on the Action Blockchain. Community support is available via Telegram, but do not provide sensitive data (such as passphrases or other login information) to anybody. Admins WILL NOT ask you for this information.

Linux Client

I like to start the Linux desktop client from shell, so I can see the output. You may also launch the installer by double clicking on it. The locations of the application shortcuts will vary depending on your flavor of Linux, and the options that you select during installation. The database and log files should be stored in the .action (note the leading dot) folder located in your home directory. If you’re only installing via shell (ie: no desktop), the database and log files will be stored in the application root.
