A guide to help install and configure GoldPieces on windows.

The first step in configuring and the GoldPieces software is downloading it. You can find the download here. Once your download is complete you can open the zip archive containing the GoldPieces-qt.exe executable. Extract the binary wherever you’d like. I placed mine directly on the Desktop. Go ahead and run the application now.

Allowing the GoldPieces software to run on windows

After allowing the GoldPieces Wallet permission to run a loading screen will show up, followed shortly by the wallet itself.

Now close the wallet and open up notepad. We need to add some nodes to the configuration file and adjust your username and password for the network.

server=1
daemon=1
listen=1
maxconnections=1024
rpcuser=user
rpcpassword=pass
rpcport=23461
addnode=176.24.105.181:23462
addnode=176.24.105.181:23462
addnode=84.200.4.67:23462
addnode=59.100.29.2:23462
addnode=142.179.7.102:23462
addnode=173.54.201.49:23462
addnode=98.226.35.5:23462
addnode=149.202.137.169:23462
addnode=71.192.210.155:23462
addnode=73.141.89.114:23462
addnode=72.241.235.204:23462
addnode=100.7.82.219:23462

Then save this file as “GoldPieces.conf” in your “C:/Users//AppData/Roaming/GoldPieces” folder that was previously created when previously opening the software. Make sure you change the to your current windows username before saving.
Saving the GoldPieces configuration file

Now go back to wherever you decided to save the binary and run the software again. After a few minutes the GoldPieces wallet will start downloading blocks and establishing connections with others connected to the network. Give it some time to download the blockchain and you will be up to date and ready to send and receive GP!
