Graphical User Interface (GUI)

1 min read

A Graphical User Interface (GUI) is a software application that allows users to interact visually with an underlying software which might otherwise only be accessible through the command line. GUIs are meant to hide the complexities of software and present the user with a simple, intuitive interface. Most applications which include a GUI can also be used without the GUI through the command line.

Most Bitcoin software comes with a GUI, including Bitcoin Core, whose GUI is called Bitcoin-Qt. Most Bitcoin wallets provide GUIs as well.
