Is there a wallet.dat for OSX? Where is it located?

The Bitcoin wallet on Mac OS X is located in ~/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin/wallet.dat.


Mac OS X v10.7 (Lion) came out, and it has the ~/Library folder hidden, see the answer from chilled35 to access it with Finder.

In order to see hidden folders, such as ~/Library from Finder, simply hit shift + ⌘ (command) + G which will GO to a folder, then paste in this location:

~/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin

From there, you will see all the files associated with your wallet.

  • hmm I can't find this in Mountain Lion... – goodguys_activate Sep 16 '12 at 2:48
  • hmm, I discovered I can see it in terminal, but not in Finder. – goodguys_activate Sep 16 '12 at 2:49
  • Remember, this is the default location. If you installed Bitcoin a long time ago, you may have chosen another folder somewhere else... For example, mine was in ~/Documents/Bitcoin – achedeuzot Nov 26 '14 at 5:37

Having moved all my BTC to another location, I recovered more than 5 GB of storage space by deleting my local wallet.
