  1. Open the following URL in a web browser to download the appropriate wallet version for your system:

  2. Be sure that your existing wallet.dat and private keys are backed up from the old wallet. We strongly recommend backing up your wallet.dat and private keys prior to starting this process.

    For more instructions, watch this Video from a fellow Rupayan, David Coen, on how to export your private keys:

  3. Close the existing Rupaya wallet, if you already have one installed and opened.

  4. Open the new Rupaya wallet. The Rupaya-qt file should be located in the following default directory:

    • Mac: /Users/USERNAME/Library/Application Support/RupayaCore
    • Windows: C:\Program Files\Rupaya
    • Accept any pop ups asking to confirm if you want to continue with the installation
    • When prompted, select Use the default data directory and click OK
    • Mac: /Users/USERNAME/Library/Application Support/RupayaCore
    • Windows: C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\RupayaCore
    • If prompted by security or antivirus software, click Allow Always
    • The new wallet should now open and begin to synchronize with the network

Updating the Wallet Default Settings

Now that the new wallet is installed, let’s take care of updating some very important default wallet settings. These steps are especially critical if you plan to setup a MasterNode.

Enable Coin Control

This feature will allow you to control your wallet inputs, to verify that all coins are consolidated into a single input, to choose which inputs you send coins from, and to optimize staking.

  1. Open the Rupaya Wallet and click on Settings
  2. Select Options
  3. Click on the Wallet tab
  4. Click the check-box that says Enable coin control features

Disable zRUPX Automint

This feature will disable the auto minting of RUPX into zRUPX.

  1. Open the Rupaya Wallet and click on Settings

  2. Select Options

  3. Click on the Main tab

  4. Uncheck the check-box that says Enable zRUPX Automint

  5. Click OK to close the wallet options.

    NOTE: THIS IS A CRITICAL STEP FOR THOSE THAT PLAN TO RUN A MASTERNODE

Once completed, you can proceed to the next step to install the bootstrap, which will reduce the amount of time it takes to synchronize the wallet with the network.
