1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade electron-cash -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade electron-cash -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

Electron Cash gives you what you love about the popular Electrum Bitcoin wallet, but for Bitcoin Cash. Control your own private keys. Back up your wallet easily with a mnemonic seed phrase. SPV technology provides high security without having to download the blockchain or run a full node.

We have forked the Electrum code repository and added the necessary components for operation with Bitcoin Cash. Some Multisig and hardware add-ons are not supported.

Note on Virus Scan Results

Some (minor) scan engines are falsely detecting the Electron Cash executable as malicious (false positive).
The authors are aware and working on it, sister projects are also affected (see also 1, 2).

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Release 3.3.6

  • Support for op_return_raw= URI parameter to 'bitcoincash:' URIs. This
    paremeter is for raw hex to be used as the OP_RETURN payload (0x6a will
    always be prefixed to this raw hex.) (markblundeberg)
  • Testnet wallets were using the wrong bip32 key headers. They SHOULD
    accept and generate tpub/tprv on testnet but instead the keys generated were
    xpub/xprv. This was not to spec and has been fixed but, it may mean you will
    need to regenerate your testnet wallets form mnemonic seed. :/ (cculianu)
  • Added "Check for updates..." mechanism which is enabled by default
    (check is done once per hour). See Preferences -> General to disable auto
    check. Or Help -> "Check for updates..." for manual checking. (cculianu)
  • Added "Dark" theme to UI. See Preferences -> General (cculianu)
  • Fixed incompatibility bug where generated QR images were uppercase-only
    BITCOINCASH: which caused problems with some buggy wallet implementations. We
    switched back to generating 'bitcoincash:' (mixed-case) URIs, which is more
    compatible. (cculianu)
  • Added "Export contacts" facility to UI so you can export all your contacts to
    a file. (Strangely, we had "Import contacts", but no export!) (cculianu)
  • Added "Wallet -> Rebuild history" to Qt GUI. Allows users to re-synch entire
    wallet from server, on demand. (commit: a72b2a72, cculianu)
  • Request fee estimate from ElectrumX/ElectronX server every 20 minutes
  • Performance improvements for wallets with huge numbers of tx's (cculianu)
