Step 1 – Choose the wallet option which best suits you:

It is quick and simple to set up, with no fees, or the power consumption costs of running a wallet. Sign up at, it’s free and registration takes less than 5 minutes.


QT Client – DNotes full node software. Best option for users who are comfortable setting up their own wallet software and want to earn staking rewards on their DNotes.


Electrum Wallet – Lightweight client that “piggybacks” on full nodes. You will not earn staking rewards with this client, and it is less secure, but it is a great option for your customers to use for making payments.
