My name is Lance and I'm new to Dash and this currency. I have Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin. So looking forward to seeing it go.

Question: Looking at the Wallet page, I have 64bit Windows 10. Under the Core wallet for Desktop there is the installer, Hashfile and PGP. What is the difference? Do I need all 3, or just the installer?

TIA
Lance

Hashfile allows you to verify that installer you downloaded is exactly the same the web page offered i.e. it matches bit by bit and it wasn't broken or altered in any way during the download. PGP allows you to verify that exactly this file was signed by one of Core Team members (currently @flare ).
