Go Quadrans self installer for Windows (discontinued)

Go Quadrans self installer for Windows is actually not supported. A new version is not planned. Please refer to Quadrans Batch Installer.

Quadrans Node installer is available for Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10 desktop operating system, and Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2016.

Select the prefered language, click Next and than click again on Next in the Welcome screen.


Please Accept the License Agreement (GNU GPL v3) to proceed with the installation.


Please select which network to connect to:

  • Mainnet: is the Quadrans main blockchain.

  • Testnet: is the testing environment of Quadrans blockchain. Users can trial their new decentralised applications (DApps) under different conditions and conduct analysis before moving to Quadrans main network. Quadrans Coins used in Testnet are easy to obtain and are a replica used exclusively for testing . Please connect to Testnet only for the intended use.


Answer Yes if you want to be listed on the Quadrans Status page and give a name to your node (for example the name of your company) to allow the basic information related to your node to be publicly visible.


During the setup the installer allows to create a wallet for Quadrans Coin linked to your node.

If you want to create a Quadrans wallet, select Yes and choose a password. We suggest to choose a random password with at least 16 digits.

Setting up a wallet is not mandatory, however you can use Quadrans wallet to collect the reward for your contribution as a Miner or Masternode or to identify your transactions on Quadrans blockchain.


You can choose the type of Node you want to install. To enable the mining functions of a Miner and a Masternode you need to pair your Node with a wallet that contains a certain number of Quadrans Tokens (please refer to the Quadrans Community registration).

  • Node: it is a computer in the blockchain network that contains a copy of the database, structured in blocks. By joining the Quadrans blockchain, you help ensure and certify that the complete history of transactions stored in the blocks are part of the distributed database. By installing a node you contribute to the expansion of the network and can start entering data into the Quadrans blockchain.

  • Miner: it is a node of the network that actively contributes to the safety of the infrastructure. To enable a node to the basic mining functions it is necessary to have a minimum of 1000 Quadrans Tokens.

  • Masternode: it is a node that performs special and highly rewarded computational tasks within the network, such as validating the blocks of the blockchain. A Masternode also distributes the work to the Miners in the network and are fewer in number than Miners. To enable a node to the Masternode mining functions it is necessary to have 100.000 Quadrans Tokens.


Please select the folder where you want to install the Quadrans Node and click Next. Inside this folder you will find the configuration files, the wallet key (if you created one) and all the blockchain data, so please select a disk that meets the minimum system requirements.


In the new window please click Install to complete the Go Quadrans installation in your computer.
