What is Dash?

In a very summarized and simple way, according to the Papel Blanco (Whitepaper) in Spanish, officer of the Dash cryptocurrency, it is:

"A cryptocurrency based on Bitcoin, the work of Satoshi Nakamoto, which consists of various enhancements, such as a two-tier incentivized network called the Masternode network. Another contribution integrated into it is PrivateSend, providing it with increasing fungibility, and InstantSend, which facilitates instant confirmation of transactions without a centralized authority."

Another important fact to highlight about Dash, is that, it is very popular (used) in Latin America and widely known in the world, as a Privacy-focused crypto currency. Any additional information about it can be obtained from your Official website.

What is Dash Core Wallet?

As we already expressed previously, Dash Core Wallet is

"The official Wallet of the Dash Cryptocurrency. And it offers all the functions of Wallet and P2P Client (person to person), including the administration functions of its platform, such as: InstantSend, PrivateSend, Governance and Masternode."

Dash Core Wallet is currently available on your stable version, as stated in its GitHub official website. However, for this download, installation and use case study, we will work on the experimental version 0.17.0 RC4.

Download, installation, use and screenshots

Once the available file called "Dashcore-", we open a terminal (console) as a user with privileges or root and proceed to execute its executable file called Dash-qt in the route "~ / Downloads / dashcore-0.17.0 / bin", as follows "./Dash-qt".

It is probable that, depending on your GNU / Linux Distribution used, you will have to install some previous packages to avoid errors. In our case study, we are using a Respin (Live and Installable Snapshot) custom named Miracles GNU / Linux which is based on MX Linux.

And it is built following our «Guide to Snapshot MX Linux» and optimized for Crypto Assets Digital Mining, following among many recommendations, those included in our publication called «Convert your GNU / Linux into an Operating System suitable for Digital Mining».

However, the following should have been installed extra packages to correct certain initialization errors, since it is of 64 bits y Dash Core Wallet requested the installation of 32-bit packages and libraries:

sudo apt install fontconfig libfontconfig1-dev libfontconfig1 libfontconfig1:i386 libx11-xcb1 libx11-xcb-dev libx11-xcb1:i386 libx11-6 libx11-6 libx11-6 libx11-6:i386

After these steps, already Dash Core Wallet started without problems as shown below:
