Wownero is a privacy-centric memecoin that was fairly launched on April 1, 2018 with no pre-mine, stealth-mine or ICO. Wownero has a maximum supply of around 184 million WOW with a slow and steady emission over 50 years. It is a fork of Monero, but with its own genesis block, so there is no degradation of privacy due to ring signatures using different participants for the same tx outputs on opposing forks.

Scheduled software upgrades

Wownero uses a fixed-schedule software upgrade (hard fork) mechanism to implement new features. This means that users of Wownero (end users and service providers) should run current versions and upgrade their software on a regular schedule. The required software for these upgrades will be available prior to the scheduled date. Please check the repository prior to this date for the proper Wownero software version. Below is the historical schedule and the projected schedule for the next upgrade. Dates are provided in the format YYYY-MM-DD.

| Software upgrade block height | Date | Release Name | Minimum Wownero version | Recommended Wownero version | Details |
| ------------------------------ | -----------| ----------------- | ---------------------- | -------------------------- | ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | | 1 | 2018-04-01 | Awesome Akita | v0.1.0.0 | v0.1.0.0 | Cryptonight variant 1, ringsize >= 8, sorted inputs | 69,69 | 2018-04-24 | Busty Brazzers | v0.2.0.0 | v0.2.0.0 | Bulletproofs, LWMA difficulty algorithm, ringsize >= 10, reduce unlock to 4 | 53,666 | 2018-10-06 | Cool Cage | v0.3.0.0 | v0.3.1.3 | Cryptonight variant 2, LWMA v2, ringsize = 22, MMS | 63,469 | 2018-11-11 | Dank Doge | v0.4.0.0 | v0.4.0.0 | LWMA v4 | 81,769 | 2019-02-19 | Erotic EggplantEmoji | v0.5.0.0 | v0.5.0.2 | Cryptonight/wow, LWMA v1 with N=144, Updated Bulletproofs, Fee Per Byte, Auto-churn | 114,969 | 2019-06-14 | F For Fappening | v0.6.1.0 | v0.6.1.2 | RandomWOW, new block weight algorithm, slightly more efficient RingCT format | 160,777 | 2019-11-20 | Gaping Goatse | v0.7.0.0 | v0.7.1.0 | Only allow >= 2 outputs, change to the block median used to calculate penalty, rct sigs in coinbase forbidden, 4 unlock time as protocol rule | 288,888 | 2021-02-08 | Hallucinogenic Hypnotoad | v0.8.0.0 | v0.8.0.0 | SHA3-256 PoW, Dandelion++ support

Release staging and Contributing

Anyone is welcome to contribute to Wownero’s codebase!

If you have a fix or code change, feel free to submit it as a pull request. Ahead of a scheduled software upgrade, a development branch will be created with the new release version tag. Pull requests that address bugs should be made to Master. Pull requests that require review and testing (generally, optimizations and new features) should be made to the development branch. All pull requests will be considered safe until the US dollar valuation of 1 Wownero equals $1000. After this valuation has been reached, more research will be needed to introduce experimental cryptography and/or code into the codebase.

Installing from a package

Packages are available for

Building from Source

  • Arch Linux/Manjaro

    sudo pacman -Syu && sudo pacman -S base-devel cmake boost openssl zeromq libpgm unbound libsodium git
    git clone
    cd wownero
  • Debian/Ubuntu

    sudo apt update && sudo apt install build-essential cmake pkg-config libboost-all-dev libssl-dev libzmq3-dev libunbound-dev libsodium-dev libpgm-dev git
    git clone
    cd wownero

Running Binaries

The build places the binary in bin/ sub-directory within the build directory from which cmake was invoked (repository root by default). To run in foreground:


To list all available options, run ./bin/wownerod --help. Options can be specified either on the command line or in a configuration file passed by the --config-file argument. To specify an option in the configuration file, add a line with the syntax argumentname=value, where argumentname is the name of the argument without the leading dashes, for example log-level=1.

To run in background:

./bin/wownerod --log-file wownerod.log --detach

To run as a systemd service, copy wownerod.service to /etc/systemd/system/ and wownerod.conf to /etc/. The example service assumes that the user wownero exists and its home is the data directory specified in the example config.

Once node is synced to network, run the CLI wallet by entering:


Type help in CLI wallet to see standard commands (for advanced options, type help_advanced).

Tor Anonymity Network

  • Install Tor Browser
  • Open torrc file in a text editor ([installation directory]/Browser/TorBrowser/Data/Tor/torrc) and add hidden service information as follows:
HiddenServiceDir [installation directory]/Browser/TorBrowser/Data/Tor/wow_node
HiddenServiceVersion 3
HiddenServicePort 44568
  • Save torrc file and restart Tor Browser (keep open)
  • Change directory to the wow_node folder, open hostname file, and copy your node’s “.onion” address
  • Start wownerod with the following parameters:
./wownerod --tx-proxy tor,,10 --add-peer hdps3qwnusz64r7odvynmae6myc2uyvrsc2emap6636qeuzll72eouid.onion:44568 --anonymous-inbound YOUR_NODE_ADDRESS.onion:44568,,25

Access remote Tor node from CLI wallet

./wownero-wallet-cli --proxy --daemon-address wow7dhbgiljnkspkzpjyy66auegbrye2ptfv4gucgbhireg5rrjza5ad.onion:34568

Use port 9050 instead of 9150 if you installed Tor as a standalone daemon. For more information, check out ANONYMITY_NETWORKS.
