Known bugs with this version

Wallet does not start

DeFiChain app does not start

Many users report that the wallet does not start after installation. We have noticed that this problem occurs mainly with people who install the DeFi App V2.3.0 or V2.3.1 for the first time. People who only install an update have this problem less.

Error description:

The DeFi App with the version does not create blockchain folders. Without this folder the app cannot work and therefore cannot start.

Faulty installation
Correct installation


The installation of the blockchain files must be triggered manually.

open on Windows: C:\Users\"username"\AppData\Local\Programs\defi-app\resources\binary\win

open on Mac: /Applications/defi-app.app/Contents/Resources/binary/mac

If you cannot find this directory: Show hidden folders#Files in an application

Start the file defid

The missing files are now created. After about 2 minutes, the window can be closed again and the app works smoothly.

More feedback from the community

Looks like a different defichain storage folder no longer works with this version. I have copied over the created subfolders from blockchain folder on c drive, but when i have the entry about other blockchain folder (example D:\defichain) in config, the app will not start even with the copied over folders from c drive.
