On Windows

Install Golang

  • Install Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL)

  • Nimble requires Go 1.22.1. If you already have a previous Go version installed, start by removing it

    • sudo apt-get remove golang-go

    • sudo rm -rf /usr/local/go

  • Once completed, open a terminal and execute the following commands

    • cd /usr/local

    • sudo wget https://go.dev/dl/go1.22.1.linux-amd64.tar.gz

    • sudo tar -C /usr/local -xzf go1.22.1.linux-amd64.tar.gz

    • export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/go/bin

    • go version

It should display the go version 1.22.1

Create Wallet

Note: Git is required for the remaining setup steps.

  • Open a terminal

  • Execute the following commands to download wallet CLI

    • mkdir $HOME/nimble && cd $HOME/nimble

    • git clone https://github.com/nimble-technology/wallet-public.git

    • cd wallet-public

    • make install

  • Locate this executable command and confirm it exists

    • nimble-networkd

  • Execute the following command to create your wallet. Give your wallet a name, such as 'ilovenimble'.

    • nimble-networkd keys add ilovenimble

    • (Type your passphrase)

    • (Save the seed phrase somewhere safe)

The β€œaddress: nimblexxxx” output means your Nimble Network wallet address was created successfully!
