Installationsanleitung für Linux#

This guide describes how to download, verify, install and encrypt the Dash Core wallet for Linux. The guide is written for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, but the steps should be similar for other Linux distributions.

Dash Core Wallet herunterladen#

Visit to download the latest Dash Core wallet. In most cases, the website will properly detect which version you need. Click the Dash Core button to download the package directly.

If detection does not work, you will need to manually choose your operating system and whether you need an x64 (64 bit x86) or ARM version. If you are unsure about your version of Linux, you can check in Ubuntu using the Terminal:

uname -m

If the response is x86_64, download Dash Core x64. If the response is aarch64, download Dash Core ARM. Once you know which version you need, download the Dash Core TGZ file to your computer from and save it to your Downloads folder.


Since Dash Core 18.0, downloads are not available for 32-bit Linux installations.

Dash Core verifizieren#

This step is optional, but recommended to verify the authenticity of the file you downloaded. This is done by checking its detached signature against the public key published by the Dash Core development team. To download the detached signature, click the Signature button on the wallet download page and save it to the same folder as the downloaded binary.

All releases of Dash since 0.16.0 are signed using GPG with the following key:

Open a terminal, import the key and verify the authenticity of your download as follows:

curl | gpg --import
gpg --verify dashcore-20.0.4-x86_64-linux-gnu.tar.gz.asc

Downloading the PGP key and verifying the signed binary#

If you see the message Good signature from ... then you have an authentic copy of Dash Core for Linux.


If you have your own key configured, you can eliminate warnings from the verification output by signing the imported key before verifying:

gpg --quick-lsign-key "29590362EC878A81FD3C202B52527BEDABE87984"
gpg --verify dashcore-20.0.4-x86_64-linux-gnu.tar.gz.asc

Dash Core entpacken#

Dash Core für Linux wird als gepacktes Archiv geliefert und nicht als Installationsdatei. Der Grund dafür ist, dass das Archiv noch weitere Dateien enthält, die dafür bestimmt sind eine Masternode auf einem Server zu betreiben. In dieser Anleitung werden wir das Archiv mit der Hilfe einer graphischen Oberfläche (GUI) entpacken, die für den Gebrauch durch den Endnutzer vorgesehen ist.

Extract Dash Core as follows:

tar xzf dashcore-20.0.4-x86_64-linux-gnu.tar.gz

This will create a folder named dashcore-20.0.4 in the current working directory. We will now install the executable binaries to /usr/local/bin using the install command:

sudo install -m 0755 -o root -g root -t /usr/local/bin dashcore-20.0.4/bin/*

Start Dash Core from the terminal with the following command:


The first time the program is launched, you will be offered a choice of where you want to store your blockchain and wallet data. Choose a location with enough free space, as the blockchain can reach 45GB+ in size. It is recommended to use the default data folder if possible.


Das Dash Core Verzeichnis auswählen#

Dash Core wird dann starten. Der Start wird beim ersten Mal etwas länger dauern als sonst, da Dash Core die kryptographischen Daten, welche die Wallet sichern, zuerst erstellen muss.


Dash Core starten#

Dash Core mit dem Dash-Netzwerk synchronisieren#

Sobald Dash Core erfolgreich installiert und gestartet wurde, wird eine Wallet-Übersicht angezeigt. Die Wallet ist zunächst „nicht synchronisiert“ und die Statusleiste am unteren Rand des Fensters zeigt den Synchronisationsfortschritt an.


Dash Core startet sich mit dem Dash Netzwerk zu synchronisieren#

During this process, Dash Core will download a full copy of the Dash blockchain from other nodes to your device. Depending on your internet connection, this may take a long time. If you see the message “No block source available”, check your internet connection. When synchronization is complete, you will see a small green tick in the lower right corner.


Die Dash Core Synchronisation ist vervollständigt#

Du kannst nun mit der Nutzung der Wallet beginnen, um Coins zu empfangen und zu senden.

Setting up a desktop entry#

You can set up an XDG Desktop Entry in order to be able to launch Dash Core from your KDE or Gnome desktop environment. To do so, create a file named ~/.local/share/applications/dash.desktop and add the following content:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Dash Core
Comment=Dash Core is used to interact with the Dash blockchain

Ensure the file is executable:

chmod +x ~/.local/share/applications/dash.desktop

An appropriate icon can optionally be downloaded from the Dash Brand Guidelines page:

xdg-icon-resource install --size 256 dash-d-rounded-square-250.png dash-icon

Creating your Dash Wallet#

Beginning with Dash Core 19.0, a wallet will not be created for you by default. You will get this prompt in the Overview tab. To create a wallet, click the Create a new wallet button or click File -> Create Wallet. Non-HD wallets are created by default. See the advanced topics section for information about HD wallets.


You will be prompted to create a new wallet with a custom wallet name. By default, your wallet will be encrypted. You may choose to uncheck the box and encrypt the wallet later. We have included instructions on how to encrypt your wallet in the following section.


If you do choose to encrypt now, you will be asked to enter and verify a password.


Passwort eingeben#

Following that, you will get a standard warning.


Bestätige bitte, dass du die Wallet verschlüsseln willst#

The following section will detail the steps you need to follow if you choose to encrypt your Dash wallet later.

Dash-Wallet verschlüsseln#

Die Wallet wird über Einstellungen > Wallet verschlüsseln verschlüsselt.


Dash-Wallet mit einem Passwort verschlüsseln#

Du wirst nach der Eingabe und Bestätigung eines Passwords gefragt.


Passwort eingeben#


Bestätige bitte, dass du die Wallet verschlüsseln willst#

When the encryption process is complete, you will see a warning that past backups of your wallet will no longer be usable, and be asked to shut down Dash Core. When you restart Dash Core, you will see a small green lock in the lower right corner.
