Setting up Honey QT Wallet in Windows
Whether you are looking to Mine Honey Coin or stake Honey, you’ll first need a Honey Wallet to send, receive and hold currencies. Honey currently offers wallet for both Windows as well as Mac users. Here in this guide we’ll be discussing on Installing Honey QT wallet in Windows.
To download Honey Wallet go to Honey GitHub page and download the latest Honey-qt-win.zip. While writing this article it was version 126.96.36.199 which may be updated by the developer so download the whichever latest version you see there. Once done unzip the file in folder where you wish to keep the wallet. Most probably it will just contain only one file which is Honey.exe. Open that, your wallet is now ready and it starts syncing with the blockchain.
This wallet saves the core file such as blockchain data and wallet information in C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Honey. If you are running out of space in C drive then this guide will help in changing the blockchain directory.
To know whether your Honey wallet is fully synchronized with the blockchain make sure the wallet doesn’t say out of sync. Also at the bottom left corner you’ll see the total number of active connection to Honey Network, staking status and blockchain sync status. To know your wallet address go to Receive tab and you’ll find your Honey wallet address there. If not you can create a new one. Alright! Your Honey Wallet is ready and you can use the public address to start receive payments either by mining or staking.
Update: Honey Wallet not synching issue Fixed.
While browsing through Bitcoin forum we found that most users were facing Honey wallet not synching issue and one of the user has suggested to download the latest blockchain directly. Here is the discussion link “My wallet is also out of sync. Ver. 188.8.131.52. Added this node – nothing happens. I have several active connections (2-4-6…) but blockchain doesn’t sync. Deleted it from Roaming folder – no change. Now it is stuck on block 2.”. If you are facing blockchain not synching issue in Honey wallet then download the blockchain to C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Honey.
