If you haven't heard about SmartCash, IT IS A KEEPER. Depending on your life's choices and principles, community based coin is a very important factor for me. Learn more by going to

Did you know that a beehive is like a family home?

Yes, it is a miracle structure that houses the bees, their young and their honey. It is a compact and powerful community.
Kudos to #SmartCash for a very good concept! #family #community

Back to my wallet

So if you haven't read some of my posts, I have an Ubuntu machine and it makes it a little bit challenging to get started on cryptocurrency that is more Windows based than Linux based.

Just like my Litecoin series, I'm going to show how to create the SmartCash desktop wallet. I know that has a web wallet version but I like my wallet out of the cloud (ya know what I mean?).


For the desktop wallet version, go ahead and download that tar.gz

Save and extract the contents to your Home folder.



Now head over to your SMARTCash bin folder and right click on any empty space > Open in Terminal > Type



If you want a shortcut

We have to set it up first by creating a desktop file.

Download the SmartCash image at the beginning of this post. Save it in your SmartCash folder so it looks like this.

Open your Terminal and type
cd /usr/share/applications/
sudo gkedit smartcash.desktop

This should ask for your password and open up a text editor. Copy below to your empty text file. Make sure you substitute yourpc with your computer name. Save and exit.

[Desktop Entry]


Now let's find our shortcut and open it!


It's is time to synch your wallet!

And since it is a new setup, it will ask for a directory of where you want to save the .smartcash wallet - Just click OK for the default location.



There you go. It's time to wait. While waiting, go ahead and lock that wallet to your launcher for easy access next time you open it. (Right click on the launcher icon for SmartCash and Lock to Launcher).

And when you see this little 'check thingy' here, your SmartCash wallet is synched.

Let's look up how to contribute to the SMARTHive and earn some SMARTs.


I love Linux, I am duel booted with windows, which I never use, but keep it around to edit some vids once in awhile.
anyways I wonder how this would work on a Debian Machine?
Debian 8.9 (amd-64)
I don't have the time right now, but if you have tried this or know of different instruction please let me know.
anyways thanks for the info

I can install Debian on my virtual machine and try it. It should be the same I think? I'll see for myself. I can't completely get off of Windows so I have it on my VM as well. Followed you :) May Yeshua bless you and yours.

Thats great man.
