Specter Desktop is a highly popular Open Source Bitcoin Coordinator App built to Store your bitcoin safely with the help of your Hardware Wallets. It supports all Major Hardware wallets, Multisignature Wallets and can be deployed very flexible, ready for Business Usecases.

This talk will give an overview of Specter Desktop and its ways to install/deploy/use it.


In order to do the most simple installation, please predownload your corresponding binary here:

After starting up, it will download the "specterd" which is also not that small. So starting it in advance would be beneficial.
You can also predownload them here:
* Windows: https://github.com/cryptoadvance/specter-desktop/releases/download/v1.13.1/specterd-v1.13.1-win64.zip
* MacOs: https://github.com/cryptoadvance/specter-desktop/releases/download/v1.13.1/specterd-v1.13.1-osx.zip
* Linux: https://github.com/cryptoadvance/specter-desktop/releases/download/v1.13.1/specterd-v1.13.1-x86_64-linux-gnu.zip

So they all have 70 to 150 MB and that's a number for a Conference WiFi.

In the workshop, we'll also cover a pip-installation what you would typically consider on a server but can also be used on a desktop/laptop. This will probably be much less resource-intensive.

A little bit of commandline usage would be necessary for the pip-installation.
