Using the Alterdot full wallet is fairly easy so you can just download the latest version, wait until it is completely synchronized with the network, and then start using it. The initial synchronization can take long, sometimes more than 4-5 hours, so we have added a bootstrap to speed things up.
The latest builds of Alterdot can be found in the releases section of our GitHub repository. If your computer is somewhat recent (not older than 5 years) you can most probably download an AVX2 version. If you plan on using the bootstrap, check the guides below before downloading.
The bootstrap itself is an archive containing blockchain data that would otherwise be synchronized automatically by the Alterdot software through a slower process.
