Get Support at Build Status Quality Gate MIT

The world's first HDD-mined cryptocurrency using an energy efficient and fair Proof-of-Capacity (PoC) consensus algorithm.

This wallet version is developed and maintained by the PoC consortium (PoCC) and supports a multitude of database backends. The two builtin backends are:

  • MariaDB (recommended)
  • H2 (embedded, easier install)

Other DB backends are supported by the Burstcoin DB manager:

Software Installation

Linux (Debian, Ubuntu)

  • fetch the newest release ZIP file

If running for the first time,

  • install Java
  • install MariaDB
  • run help
  • probably you want to do import mariadb

if upgrading your wallet config from 1.3.6cg upgrade

will take the old files and create files in the conf directory. This should give you a headstart with the new option naming system.



In the conf directory, copy into a new file named

Download and install MariaDB

The MariaDb installation will ask to setup a password for the root user. Add this password to the file created above in the following section:


The MariaDB installation will also install HeidiSQL, a gui tool to administer MariaDb. Use it to connect to the newly created mariaDb server and create a new DB called burstwallet.


BRS can be installed using a Homebrew formula. A short tutorial on how to install BRS using homebrew can be found at

A number of other Hombrew formulas (written by Nixops) are also available for plotters and miners.

Other Unix-like systems

Please install Java 8 (JRE 1.8) manually and run the wallet by using You can get further information calling help

A good HowTo for running the wallet on a mac can be found here

Configure and Initialize MariaDB

The Debian and Ubuntu packages provide an automatic configuration of your local mariadb server. If you can't use the packages, you have to initialize your database with these statements:

echo "CREATE DATABASE brs_master; 
      CREATE USER 'brs_user'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'yourpassword';
      GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON brs_master.* TO 'brs_user'@'localhost';" | mysql -uroot
mysql -uroot < init-mysql.sql
Configure your Wallet

Now you need to add the following stuff to your conf/



latest : Latest tag of the BRS with H2 database
mariadb : Latest tag of the BRS with MariaDB database
2.2.6-h2, 2.2-h2, 2-h2 : Version 2.2.6 of the BRS with H2 database
2.2.6-mariadb, 2.2-mariadb, 2-mariadb : Version 2.2.6 of the BRS with MariaDB database

Note (H2 only):
H2 dump username and password has been changed through updates. The current dump has the user 'sa' and password 'sa' which is used in the BRS 2.2.1 image. If you get username errors, please mount your custom config for your H2 file.

Old username and passwords:

  • both empty
  • burst - burst
