Which wallet download do I need?

This page is here to help you choose your correct wallet download from the PIVX wallet download page.

 

Windows

32bit or 64bit
You will need the version that matches your operating system, although 64bit windows is generally backwards compatible with 32 bit apps. How to check your version of Windows.

exe or zip
The exe is the recommended download as this will install everything to standard locations and updating is easier. The zip download allows you to download the binaries in a more portable format, but please note that your data directory will still be saved to the C: drive unless you specify otherwise. If you use the zip version, please remember to update your shortcuts when you update the software.


Mac

dmg or tgz
This is similar to the exe or zip section above. The dmg will install PIVX Core in standard locations and update easily. The tgz is a portable set of binaries. If you use the tgz version, please remember to update your shortcuts when you update the software.

High Sierra
Changes in the High Sierra version of OSX require a special build of PIVX Core. If you have High Sierra you must use this download.


Linux

32bit or 64bit
You will need the version that matches your operating system. How to check your OS type on Linux.

tgz or arm
The ARM option is for low power processors like a raspberry pi. All others should use the standard tgz install. Please note the tgz is a portable set of binaries, so you when you need to run or update your PIVX Core software you'll need to know where you downloaded and unzipped it.


Mobile

PIVX Mobile Wallet for Android
This is the official PIVX Android app. It is an HD and SPV wallet.

Coinomi
Coinomi is a 3rd party multicoin HD and SPV wallet that works based on a seed phrase and supports PIVX. It can also sweep wallets, which is useful for recovery or redemption of paper wallet balances.


Single Board Computers (SBCs)


The Raspberry Pi runs Linux and runs Raspbian, a 32bit operating system (even though the CPU is 64bit ARM). For this you will need the 32bit ARM download.

Other SBCs like the Odroid or banana pi are likely to use the linux ARM build but may be full 64bit
