This is a guide to install masternode with your wallet in your home pc and Linux VPS. You will have your coins in your PC and your masternode in VPS won't have your coins. Your masternode will just do the earning rewards. For your home wallet you can use Windows, Mac or even Linux. But on VPS side you have to use Linux, Ubuntu 16.04 recommended.
IQCASH masternode requirements:
- 3000 IQ on balance;
- availability of a dedicated IP-address;
- availability of uninterrupted operation of the system 24/7 (network loss must not exceed 30-60min).
The Masternode owner receives 57% of the reward from each new generated block on the network in the
queue order of all Masternode. This is the cost for network maintaining Absolutely any user is able to start
IQCASH Masternode, subject to the above conditions.
Note: Now it will take some time. Wait until the following is printed to the console: "Masternode installed!". It will also print masternode key and masternode.conf string. Save it somewhere, you will use that later.
4.1 Let's see if your 3000 IQ transaction to yourself has been confirmed (minimum 15 confirmations).
4.2 On your desktop wallet, go to Tools->Debug Console. In text box below run the following command
This is the transaction that would be used to keep masternode aknowledged by IQ network. Long part - is a transaction id. Short number - is a transaction index. Copy them too, you will use them shortly.
Note: Keep those two values without quotes (").
4.3 Go to Tools -> Masternode configuration file.It will open your masternode.config file.
It's needed for starting and tracking your masternode remotely.
4.4 Paste here prepared masternode.conf string that we've received on step 3.2.
4.5 Replace INPUTTX with long transaction id, and INPUTINDEX with short transaction
index that we've kept on 4.2. Click "Save" and close this config.
4.6 Go to Settings -> Options -> Wallet and enable "Show Masternodes Tab".
4.7 Restart the wallet.
Wait for wallet finish syncing. There must be no "out of sync" or "synchronizing masternodes" messages. It could take a couple of minutes.
Only then follow 4.9.
4.9 Go to "Masternodes" tab. You should see your masternode. Select it and run "Start alias".
Congrats! You've broadcasted your masternode to the IQCASH network.
Now it would go into state PRE_ENABLED, and after some time become ENABLED.
If so, you are all set. Your masternode will start getting rewards in about few hours.
If after 40min your masternode wouldn't become ENABLED, try doing
4.9 again and wait until it goes ENABLED. If this wouldn't help, feel free to ask our support for some advice.
