About

Particl Desktop is our feature-rich flagship client, recommended for most users for interacting with Particl network.

We provide a decentralized privacy platform with a suite of tools to enhance your online privacy:

  • An anonymous cryptocurrency – send and receive the PART cryptocurrency without revealing the transaction history
  • End-to-end encrypted messaging – communicate in a secure and decentralized manner without revealing your IP address
  • A private marketplace – buy and sell goods without leaving a trace (WIP on market branch)
  • Community governance – anyone can submit proposals to Particl network via decentralized voting & governance (WIP on market branch)

This repository is the user interface that works in combination with our particl-core.

Development

Note: most recent development happens on market branch

  1. Run ng serve to start the dev server and keep it running
  2. In another terminal window, run yarn run start:electron:dev -testnet --devtools to start Particl Desktop on testnet (daemon will be updated and launched automatically)
    • -testnet – for running on testnet (omit for running the client on mainnet)
    • -reindex – reindexes the blockchain (in case you're stuck)
    • --devtools – automatically opens Developer Tools on client launch

You can directly interact with the daemon ran by the Electron version.
