Important Upgrade note

Please take this time to backup your existing wallet.dat to a safe place

Those updating from older clients will need to remove the existing peers.dat file, see examples below

This release will change the default directory names from mazacoin to maza in all cases Starting the new client will create a new directory. If you would like you can - move the blockchain data from your old directory to the new directory - move your wallet.dat from the old directory to the new directory

You may also move the directory prior to starting you new client:


  mv ~/.mazacoin ~/.maza
  rm ~/.maza/peers.dat
  mv ~/.maza/mazacoin.conf ~/.maza/maza.conf


  mv ~/Library/Application\ Support/Mazacoin ~/Library/Application\ Support/Maza
  rm ~/Library/Application\ Support/Maza/peers.dat
  mv ~/Library/Application\ Support/Maza/mazacoin.conf ~/Library/Application\ Support/Maza/maza.conf


  xcopy  %APPDATA%\Mazacoin %APPDATA%\Maza\ /E
  del  %APPDATA%\Maza\peers.dat
  ren  %APPDATA%\Maza\mazacoin.conf   %APPDATA%\Maza\maza.conf

Downloading via IPFS

While we strive to keep our websites and other services as secure as possible, we simply cannot keep them as secure as the MAZAchain, or its cousin IPFS, the Interplanetary File System. For this reason, we now provide all of our downloads, and signed official sources via IPFS.

Please see our docs on How to Download MAZA via IPFS

Binaries, SHA sums, gpg signatures will be made available on:


MAZA is downloaded from IPFS either with a native IPFS client on your machine (safest) or by way of a Web Gateway.

See our Download page for links and more details.

All binaries are gpg signed Please check hashes & signatures!
