Reindexing your wallet

If you have trouble syncing your wallet and it appears to be stuck on a block, please start it again with the -reindex-chainstate flag. This will start the Zcoin wallet and begin the blockchain reindex process and will take several hours.

If you suspect corrupted blocks, please run -reindex instead.

Make sure you are always on the latest release by going to our release page.

Windows

Open the folder where the zcoin-qt.exe is located. Hold Shift, right-click inside the folder and select ‘Open command window here’. In the Command Prompt that appears, type:

zcoin-qt.exe -reindex-chainstate

If you also want to rescan for Zcoin Sigma mints, do the following (which will also reindex)

zcoin-qt.exe -zapwalletmints

Windows 10: Windows 10 has changed the default Command Prompt to PowerShell. If this is the case, Shift + right-click inside the folder and click ‘Open PowerShell window here’.

Type .\zcoin-qt.exe, add the -reindex-chainstate flag and press Enter. Note the period and backslash.

Linux

Navigate to the directory where your zcoin-qt binary is. In the Terminal, type in the following:

./zcoin-qt -reindex-chainstate

If you also want to rescan for Zcoin Sigma mints, do the following (which will also reindex)

./zcoin-qt -zapwalletmints

If you want to reindex your Znode:

./zcoind -daemon -reindex-chainstate

Note that the time to finish reindex differs greatly depending on your VPS’ performance.

macOS

Using the Terminal, enter the following command:

/Applications/zcoin-qt.app/Contents/MacOS/Zcoin-qt -reindex-chainstate

And to do it with scanning of Zcoin Sigma mints, do the following (which will also reindex).

/Applications/zcoin-qt.app/Contents/MacOS/Zcoin-qt -zapwalletmints

Zcoin Rich GUI client (Electron)

To reindex the Electron client, open the zcoin.conf and add reindex=1. Save the file and start the client. Once the reindex has started, remove the reindex=1 line from the zcoin.conf file.
