Install Wallet on Apple Mac

Before you start, the team recommends that you read Getting Started if you haven't already. It's a 30-second read that will save you time.

Mantis is both a graphical wallet and a command-line client. You can download either or both.

This section outlines how to install the Mantis wallet on your Apple Mac machine. If you want the client, follow the client installation instructions.

Prerequisites

See Getting Started.

Installing the wallet

To install Mantis wallet, follow these steps:

  1. Choose and download the Apple Mac installer from the wallet releases page. The Apple installer is the one with the .dmg extension. Note the checksum.
Mantis-Wallet-<version>.dmg

Remember to run checksum verification on your downloads. Refer to this section for instructions.

  1. Open (mount) the .dmg file and proceed with a standard Mac install.
mv Mantis-Wallet-3.1.0.AppImage /home/<user>/bin/
cd /home/<user>/bin/

After mounting the dmg file, drag the 'Mantis-Wallet' icon to the 'Applications' shortcut in the same window. You can unmount it later. Mac Install

We recommend placing the Mantis folder in the default folders provided during install.

  1. Now, you can run the wallet by double-clicking the file or running it through your Desktop environment.

During startup, Mantis wallet allows you to choose the network. The network is the blockchain to synchronize. Here is the splash screen: splash screen
