Linux Installation Guide#

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.

Downloading da Carteira Dash Core#

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.


O site detecta corretamente a carteira apropriada para o seu sistema#

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.

Verificando Dash Core#

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 are signed using GPG with one of the following keys:

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

curl | gpg --import
curl | gpg --import
gpg --verify dashcore-19.1.0-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.

Extracting Dash Core#

Dash Core for Linux is distributed as a compressed archive and not an installer. This is because this same archive also contains other files built for running a masternode on a server, for example. In this guide, we will extract the executable file with a graphical user interface (GUI) designed for use by end users as a wallet.

Extract Dash Core as follows:

tar xzf dashcore-19.1.0-x86_64-linux-gnu.tar.gz

This will create a folder named dashcore-19.1.0 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-19.1.0/bin/*

Start Dash Core from the terminal with the following command:


Na primeira vez que o programa for lançado, você terá a opção de escolher onde deseja armazenar seus dados de blockchain e carteira. Escolha um local com espaço livre suficiente, pois o blockchain pode atingir cerca de 30GB+. Recomenda-se usar a pasta de dados padrão, se possível.


Escolhendo a pasta de dados do Dash Core#

O Dash Core será iniciado. Isso levará um pouco mais do que o normal na primeira vez que você executá-lo, já que o Dash Core precisa gerar dados criptográficos para proteger sua carteira.


Iniciando Dash Core#

Sincronizando o Dash Core na rede do Dash#

Depois que o Dash Core for instalado e iniciado com sucesso, você verá a tela de visão geral da carteira. Você notará que a carteira está «fora de sincronia» e a barra de status na parte inferior da janela mostrará o andamento da sincronização.


Dash Core começa a sincronizar com a rede do Dash#

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.


A sincronização do Dash Core está concluída#

Agora você pode começar a usar sua carteira para enviar e receber fundos.

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.


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.


Enter a password#

Following that, you will get a standard warning.


Confirme que você deseja criptografar sua carteira#

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

Criptografando sua carteira do Dash#

To encrypt your wallet, click Settings > Encrypt wallet.


Criptografar a carteira do Dash com uma senha#

Você será solicitado a inserir e verificar uma senha.


Entering a password#


Confirme que você deseja criptografar sua carteira#

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.
